Exam Results 2019/20

Firstly, we would like to congratulate all of our outgoing Year 13 students on what they have achieved in what has been, for many, a journey with us lasting seven years. We know what incredible commitment and dedication they have given to their studies over the last two years and they should rightly be recognised as one of the most exceptional cohorts of learners that Guiseley School has had the privilege of nurturing.

Having come to the end of that journey, students can now look forward to the next step in their education with great confidence. Many of our students will continue their paths at top universities, including three students who will be studying at Oxbridge. Other destinations will include St Andrews, Lancaster, Newcastle, Manchester, Liverpool, Leeds, and many more. Whilst the majority of students are continuing their education at university or college, others have secured higher level apprenticeships and employment.

It has, of course, been a results day like no other. We have not been able to enjoy the company of our students whilst they celebrate taking those next steps and this is a landmark event in the lives of young people that we sorely miss being a part of. We are also finding it difficult to celebrate the success in awarded grades for some when we know that so many others have experienced disappointment. Several students have had their grades ‘statistically moderated’ resulting in them receiving grades far less than we believe they would have achieved had they been given examination opportunities. It feels unfair and unjust to have the award of a grade decided by a statistical algorithm.

Nonetheless, what we know of this cohort of young people is that they have incredible resilience. Irrespective of the result of any appeals or challenges to grades, they have proven to be hard-working, creative and innovative problem-solvers for whom the future will be bright. We wish all our students the very best in their next steps whether that be university, college, employment or apprenticeships.

- Mr Paul Clayton, Headteacher

Guiseley School students are today celebrating receiving their hard-earned GCSE results. Amongst a strong set of results were excellent achievements by a number of students receiving multiple top qualifications of Grade 9.
 
Alice Bowden received eight Grade 9 qualifications, Liberty Branston and Louis Whitaker both received six, Amber Hull and Scarlet Dawson received five, Annabel Knott and Alfie Thornton received four, with Katie Smith and Kirsten Lloyd both achieving three each. These students and many others received ten GCSE grades each of a quality level.
 
Headteacher, Paul Clayton, said: "It was lovely to see so many students opening their results today and being delighted with their results. These young people have worked incredibly hard for their passes in a very challenging examination system, they should be delighted with what they have achieved. In particularly it is pleasing to see a rise in the number of students we have achieving the very top grades in subjects. We wish them all the very best for the future.”
