Congratulations to the Class of 2020
Congratulations to the class of 2020!
It has been a strange year 2020 and a really challenging one for all the pupils in this cohort. In mid-March they received the news that they would not be sitting the public GCSE examinations and although some may have been initially pleased most will have been disappointed to not have had the opportunity to prove in the traditional way the hard work and progress they have made during their time at All Hallows. They were also unable to experience the excitement and celebrations centered around the last day of school and of course the Prom!
At the end of August, we received the news that the grades for this year’s GCSE’s would predominantly be from Centre Assessed Grades and for the first time for All Hallows results were received via Email.
These results reflect the hard work of our students and although not the result of examination are the result of continuous hard work and commitment to their studies throughout the whole course.
We are delighted with the results of the year group as a whole and although it is difficult to make direct comparisons to previous years it is fair to say that they represent some of the best results the school has ever seen. We hope that all our students have been able to enrol onto college courses that will inspire them to continue their learning and development in the next stage of life’s journey.
Particular congratulations should be given to Evelyn Nicol who managed to achieve a Grade 9 in all of her subjects. This is not only an outstanding achievement but also incredibly rare.
Several other students also achieved an average of over 8 in their subjects reflecting extremely high academic achievement and we are very proud of them.

This year’s cohort also contained students who made tremendous progress whilst studying at All Hallows. These students demonstrated how a good attitude to their studies as well as perseverance and high levels of motivation can really result in outstanding achievements.
The pupils with the highest scores for progress include:
