Celebrating A-level results after 18 challenging months

Published on 10/08/21

Students in Silverdale Sixth Form today celebrated some fantastic results and, more importantly, their achievements after nearly two years of the most challenging times.

The Year 13 students have faced Covid lockdowns, remote learning, and changes to the way their work would be assessed. Many have faced challenges in their home life, whilst others have struggled to maintain their wellbeing during the global pandemic.

Head of Silverdale School, Sarah Sims, said:

“Students deserve huge credit for the determination shown, in what has been an exceptional 18 months. Their hard work and fortitude has resulted in some exceptional individual success stories.

“This year the government decided to cancel all public examinations and instead teachers assessed students instead. We would like to thank all teachers and support staff for the enormous amount of work they have put into implementing this alternative system at great speed following the government’s announcement in March.”

Highlights included:

Zahab Ali secured a prestigious Degree Apprenticeship with Oxford Economics.
