Principal, Sara Russell said:

“This year group has had an educational experience like no other – the first to have its GCSE exams cancelled, and the first to be asked to sit full A level examinations, and all sorts of COVID arrangements to navigate in between.

Against a national drop in A level performance, we are proud that we have bucked this trend and our students’ grades are as high as last year: indeed, the proportion of A* grades has actually increased with almost 1,000 securing this top grades.

I can’t begin to tell you how delighted I am for them. The results you see today are the best ever attained by our students.

It is a very proud day for the college, the staff and the parents. But above all, it is a remarkably proud day for our students. Their tireless hard work, focus and dedication really has paid off. I am thrilled. This shows that Symonds remains the perfect place for ambition.”
