Bryanston's A2s receive excellent set of A level results

Bryanston’s departing A2 year group have received an excellent set of A level results today.  This has been an unprecedented year, with exams being cancelled due to the Covid-19 pandemic and months of periodic closures.

It is safe to say that the A level experience this year has been unlike any that has come before.

With these pressures placed on the whole Bryanston community, it is testament to the commitment, hard work and perseverance of both our pupils and staff, with ongoing support from our Bryanston parents, that our A2s made it through their final year so successfully and can now look forward to the next chapter in their lives. 

Deputy Head Academic Steven Green, commented: “The last 18 months have been an incredible and unprecedented time to work in education. We are so proud of the commitment and achievements of all our pupils, supported so superbly by our teaching staff. They have had to learn to cope with uncertainty, to adapt and to learn in different ways, often with very little warning. Today we celebrate their success and acknowledge the tremendous contribution they have made to the life of the school.”

During enforced periods of school closures, we operated the Guided Learning Programme, which encouraged our pupils to challenge and explore their own imagination and develop their skills while away from the school environment. Our remote learning was conducted via Teams to ensure academic continuity and to maintain individual support for each pupil with their tutor and boarding house. In the final half of the Summer term our A2s also engaged in the pre-university programme to prepare them for the courses and careers that they will now embark on.

Head of Teaching and Learning Will Ings, commented: “The decision to cancel exams led to opportunities for our teachers to innovate and to focus on standards rather than formulae. Our teaching body worked tirelessly to ensure that pupils were given the best opportunities to show their understanding and capabilities in their subjects.”
