Results Days 2020

This year A Level results day will be on Thursday, August 13th, with the GCSE results day on the following Thursday, August 20th.

The results days this year will, of course, be quite different for a number of reasons but they are just as important as ever. Please find below details of our arrangements.

  • Due to the current situation, unfortunately you will not be able to come into school to collect your results. We are allowed to release results from 8am and will be emailing results to your @queenscollege email addresses as soon after this time as possible.
  • Once you have received your results, if you have any questions or wish to talk to any members of staff, please email exams@queenscollege.org.uk or call the main school number 01823 272559. We will then direct your email or call to the right person.
  • Sixth Form and academic staff will be on hand to discuss Sixth Form and university courses on results days and on the days that follow. We will try to arrange conversations and meetings over the phone or online through Google Meets but if, after having received your results, you feel that a face-to-face meeting is necessary, please use the contact details above to arrange an appointment.
  • Students in Year 13 will receive further detailed information about the UCAS confirmation, clearing and adjustment processes later this week.

Ofqual has released new guidance on the very limited appeals process and the planned Autumn series of A Level and GCSE exams for those students who wish to take them. The full guidance is available by CLICKING HERE. We will of course keep students/parents informed as we learn more about the options available.

Coming together with your friends to celebrate your results is an important part of the process. While we are not in a position this year to be able to facilitate this on the results days, please be assured that we will plan an appropriate celebration in the future, just as soon as we are able.

Outstanding Results in 2019

Our Head Teacher, Dr Earps, expressed her delight last summer at the best set of results at Queen’s since the new style of A Levels were introduced.

“We are so pleased with the grades achieved including a near 99 per cent pass rate overall,” she said.

“The number of students achieving A*-A grades has gone up by ten per cent and there have been outstanding performances in all areas with the vast majority of students earning places at their first-choice university.”

Dr Earps added: “We have carried out a huge amount of work to continuously develop the way we teach at Queen’s and this is clearly paying dividends.

“We also have a number of exciting changes to our academic offering from September and are confident that this will lead to even better results in 2020.”

Individual success stories

The Heads of School were among our top A Level performers in 2019.

Head Boy, Matthew Keogan, achieved A* grades in Biology, Chemistry and Mathematics with another A* for his Extended Project Qualification (EPQ).

Matthew, who has gone to Durham University to study Chemistry, fully embraced life at Queen’s including playing rugby, hockey, and canoe polo for the school.

“I am very happy with my results,” he said. “I’m not really sure what I’d like to do for a career – I’m going to wait and see how uni goes.”

Olivia Sandow, Head Girl, was delighted with her A* grades in English and Spanish along with A grades in French and History.

“I’ve really enjoyed my time at Queen’s,” she said.

Phoebe Wright overcame a debilitating illness to produce an outstanding set of A Level results.

Despite having to take a year out of school, Phoebe achieved an A* in Textiles and A grades in Psychology and Biology.

She suffered from Chronic Fatigue Syndrome – a long-term illness with a wide range of symptoms. including extreme tiredness – during her GCSEs.

She managed to complete the exams and went on to go through Year 12 at Queen’s but was then severely affected as she started the second year of her A Level studies.

Phoebe was forced to take the rest of the school year off but returned in September.

“I’m a little shocked but really pleased with my results.” she said. “I can manage my illness now and would like to really thank everyone at Queen’s for all the support I’ve received, particularly during the past year.”

Phoebe has gone to Exeter University to study Clinical Applied Psychology and hopes to pursue a career in either teaching or child psychology.

Another top performer was William Brown who is hoping to pursue a career in banking.

William achieved A* grades in Mathematics and Further Mathematics along with an A in Chemistry which he is studying at Imperial College in London.

“I’m very happy with my results,” he said.

 He said he was “pleasantly surprised and very pleased” to have achieved an A* in Art, an A in Biology and a B in Chemistry.
