Outstanding A Level Results at Becket Keys
A level results day was a day of great celebration at Becket Keys Church of England School with over 120 students and almost 30 members of Becket Keys staff in school. There was all the usual excitement as results were given out and next steps were secured.
Mr Scott-Evans said, “It was an emotional day at the end of a very difficult journey for these students. I am incredibly proud of them all and have thoroughly enjoyed seeing them all today and hearing about the next steps of their educational journey. The grades, which are the best Becket Keys has ever achieved, are a firm recognition of how hard the students worked and applied themselves to their studies over the past two years.”
As with last year’s results, due to disruption caused by the Covid-19 pandemic, the grades that students received did not come from end of year exams as would normally be the case. Grades have been awarded through a process of rigorous teacher assessment.
Good weather helped the process today as students, parents and staff were able to talk outside. Some students stayed on site with their friends until almost midday. Others were assisted quickly with University entrance before going off to celebrate their successes.
Mrs Downs (Chair of Governors) said, “It is really pleasing once again to see the overwhelming majority of students gaining their first-choice university - our highest number going to Russell Group Universities so far and another student off to Cambridge again this year.”
In common with all schools in Brentwood, Becket Keys are not announcing our A level results. However, there
are many students who have exceeded expectations and secured fantastic grades in their A level subjects. We
are sharing some of their success stories here.
