The Grove Sixth Form continues on successful path

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

Grades represent the hard work and commitment from students and staff during their A level study.

We are delighted for our 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 work has been rewarded. We pride ourselves on offering a balance between a pursuit for academic excellence alongside personalised pastoral care with the added complexity of managing this remotely for many of our students.

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 and examination boards used statistical models and centre assessed grading to arrive at final grades, there will be a small number of students that will need support with appealing their grade.

Students have built their resilience for what is to follow and are looking forward to studying at a range of institutions including the University of Leeds to read Business and Economics, University of Lancaster to study Business Management, the University of Sheffield to study Physics, the University of Chester to study Primary Education and Keele University to read Environmental Science

Andy Rayner, Head of Sixth Form commented: “The students have worked so hard and that is evident in the results they have achieved. We have a great facility offering a wide range of extra-curricular activities making the Sixth Form appealing to students leaving The Grove School to continue their studies in our onsite Sixth Form. Our ability to adapt learning was done swiftly which has ensured our results are not impacted as most of our lessons have been taught remotely since March”.

Headteacher of The Grove School, Sonia Taylor added: “We have made significant progress and with a great team of specialist staff have been able to celebrate some great results. We wish all our students every future success and am pleased that we have been able to support them on that journey as part of The Grove Sixth Form community. This year has shown how we can adapt our teaching and learning to be remote whilst maintaining our support and ensuring our students are striving for success. The continuation of study, particularly this year has huge benefits, and this is clear from our results”.

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