The Grove School continues on an academic pathway

The Grove School, Market Drayton is continuing the great achievements within the Marches Academy Trust with a solid set of GCSE results.

Grades represent the hard work and commitment from students combined with the professional and controlled grading from staff which show a realistic representation of achievement.

The school is delighted for their students; it is a great relief to finally know that even during strange times with a high proportion of the year taught remotely, that the hard work has been rewarded. The Grove School prides itself on offering a balance between a pursuit for academic excellence alongside personalised pastoral care with the added complexity of managing this remotely for many students.

Students have shown resilience this year to provide a strong foundation for their future. It is also exciting to see many students able to continue their studies into The Grove Sixth Form, where many will go on to study at top universities.

Staff are working incredibly hard to ensure all students have the opportunity to pursue the future they aspire to. As exams didn’t take place, results have been allocated based on centre assessed grading with some standardisation through the exam boards.

The staff work closely with students to offer tailored support in order to ensure each and every student reaches their potential. The best results have been seen where there is an effective working relationship between the student, teacher and parents; they work together in order to ensure the student gets the best from their education and has resulted in those students exceeding their challenging targets.

Headteacher of The Grove School, Sonia Taylor added: “We are delighted that we can celebrate the achievements of our students today. We have made significant progress with a great team of specialist staff. We wish all our students every future success and are pleased that we have been able to support them on that journey as part of The Grove School and now into The Grove Sixth Form community. I would like to recognise and thank parents for the strong working partnership we have had; it has been key to so many students achieving their potential. Staff at the school have worked tirelessly for the students and will enjoy celebrating their successes”.

Applications for The Grove Sixth Form are still open for September 2020 start and details can be found on the website

The Open Evening will take place on 8th October 2020 which prospective parents and the community are invited to. Mrs Taylor will showcase the school facilities and introduce the team that worked hard to make these results happen. More information can be found on our website
