Class of 2021 Celebrate A Level Success

CHS’s Class of 2021 have their sights set on destinations near and far after another year of outstanding A Level results – so joined together with their families to celebrate!

Gathering in front of the School’s own Sixth Form social and study hub, the Johnson Building, the former students and their loved ones shared congratulations and marked the end of an era. 

Catching up with peers, they also thanked and said goodbye to their teachers whilst enjoying refreshments from local independent suppliers The Coffee Bean Dream and Ginger’s Ice Cream Emporium.

 “A huge congratulations to the Class of 2021, you have had a really difficult couple of years and we are so proud of you and everything you have achieved. We wish you the very best going forward and are going to miss you!” CHS Head of Sixth Form, Mr Michael Jones

Packing their suitcases for travels across Europe, North America and the Middle East, a large number of this year’s A Level cohort have chosen to embark upon a gap year, and some will even join the many Old Waconians based internationally by continuing their studies abroad.

Following in the footsteps of last year’s graduates, others have secured the results required for accepting offers to read courses at some of the country’s top universities, or will take the next step towards their chosen careers on sought-after apprenticeships and work placements.

 “Although this has been another unusual year for students studying for A Levels, BTECs, and Pre-U, these results are the product of considerable hard work during the course of study, and is therefore extremely satisfying to see the Class of 2021’s endeavour rewarded in this way. I would also like to acknowledge the care, dedication, and effort the staff have demonstrated throughout.”CHS Head, Mr Neil Smith

Among their impressive results, CHS students have maintained the School’s strong reputation for Modern Languages at A Level and this year was no exception with 100% of its French and German candidates achieving A*-A. 

In the second year CHS has offered the Sport BTEC, Class of 2021’s athletes reached the top of their own podiums with 100% achieving grades A*-A.

CHS’s EPQ (Extended Project Qualification) students are also celebrating their academic achievements with 21 candidates receiving A* grades.
