GCSE Exam Results 2021


Uckfield College GCSE results 2021


Uckfield College Year 11 students celebrated their immense achievements as they opened their GCSE results envelopes.


Hugh Hennebry, Principal, said, “Our year 11 students are a lovely year group full of keen and inquisitive learners. In school they asked lots of questions and in the times that they had to work from home because of the pandemic, they kept their motivation and interest levels high and were very successful with their real-time remote learning. When they came to be assessed by their teachers, through a variety of different methods, they were able to demonstrate all of their learning because they had worked so hard throughout their entire GCSE course. We are so proud of not just what they have achieved but how strong they have grown in their character too. We wish them every success in their next steps in their learning journeys.”


Sara Marshallsay, Head of School, added, “It was fantastic to see our students opening their results this morning and being so pleased with their results; we are all immensely proud of their resilience and determination.”


Dan Wynne Willson, Deputy Principal, added, “I am so very proud of what our students have achieved during the most unpredictable last year and a half. It was lovely to see so many happy faces this morning and the surprise many of our students expressed at their excellent results. When they returned to school in September, I could immediately see an incredible will to learn and study hard, despite the numerous interruptions to their face to face learning. I wish them all the best in the future and know that what they have achieved today and over the past 5 years at Uckfield College will set them up well for their futures.”


Toby Meanwell, Director of Year 11, said, “I am so proud and thrilled for the students and their performance over the last year, to say it has been a challenge would be an understatement. These results reflect their hard work and dedication during a year with so many uncertainties. It was so special to see their happy faces and excitement for the future today. Well done all of you!”
