The results for this year group are a testament to the excellent teaching, opportunities for self-development and exceptional pastoral support we provide at Knights Templar.

Headteacher Tim Litchfield said: “I am so proud of these students.  This year group always aimed high and have achieved exceptional results.  They are a credit to themselves and their parents and are a testament to the remarkable teaching and pastoral support we provide here at Knights Templar”

Nick White, Head of Year 11, added: “GCSE results are excellent again this year with many high grades. Students, parents and staff have worked incredibly hard and all have been rewarded with wonderful attainment levels. I am extremely proud and delighted with the performance of our students and wish them every success as they move into the next stage of their education.

We have instigated many support mechanisms over the last four years and believe students have reaped the benefits. I would like to thank the students, parents and staff for your support.

Please check your grades against the boundary grades. These can be found on websites, be careful that you select the correct examination board and course of study. If you are a few marks below, it might be worth considering a re-mark. If you would like more information in regards to this please contact me.

As a student you may be disappointed with your examination results. You might find it a challenge to discuss your feelings, please do not put off this conversation about what has happened. You need to decide which avenues are now open to you. Connexions would be an excellent place to start, they offer expertise in all areas that you could consider. This could be where you obtain fresh ideas perhaps into options you may not have considered. Good Luck.
