GCSE Results Day 2021

Oakwood Park Grammar School media and communications statement: press release on 2021 GCSE results.

Oakwood Park Grammar School is pleased to report outstanding achievements by its students in their GCSEs this summer.

Staff were delighted to celebrate a second results day in one week, this time with the students of Year 11. Some of our exceptional student performances are detailed below.

Ashwin Knight achieved a Grade 9 in all of his eleven subjects and will now continue his passion for the sciences and Maths at A Level in the OPGS Sixth Form. Thomas Lenham achieved ten Grade 9s and one Grade 8 and will also continue his studies of Maths and the sciences at A Level. They will be joined by Josh Ingram, who achieved eight Grade 9s and three Grade 8s.

Saul John and Ben Madden also achieved an impressive eight Grade 9s and will continue their education at the OPGS Sixth Form. Callum Pearce and Jack Wilson both achieved eleven GCSEs at Grade 7 and above, seven of which were at Grade 9. Jack will continue with his studies in science and Maths. Callum too will continue with Maths and Physics, as well as DT.

Owen Jenner achieved five Grade 8s and six Grade 9s, whilst Alex Stone achieved four Grade 9s and five Grade 8s, reflecting the effort put in by these students. Other outstanding performances came from Harry Randall and Henry Hayward who both secured top grades (7+) in all eleven of their GCSEs, including three Grade 9s. Daniel Griffith, Ryan Hughes and Rhys Wenborn continued the trend of securing the top grades in all of their subjects, each with a number of Grade 8s and two Grade 9s, with the sciences, Maths, Humanities and Languages proving popular A Level options amongst these students.

Other remarkable student performances include Dylan Phillips, Christian Woodward, Jude Fanthome-Hodgson and Thomas Claxton, who achieved at least a Grade 7 in each of their subjects, with Thomas securing five Grade 8s. We are absolutely delighted that these students will be joining the OPGS Sixth Form in September.

This year, following the cancellation of exams, grades were awarded through a process of teacher assessed grades, against a national standard and approved and awarded by the exam boards. The government is not publishing performance data for any schools or colleges this year due to the varying impact of the pandemic.

Mr Moody, the school Head Teacher said: “Everyone at Oakwood Park Grammar School is so proud of the achievements of our Year 11 students. They worked exceptionally hard and demonstrated great resilience over two years of disrupted learning. They deserve every success. I also want to thank our teachers, who have worked tirelessly to ensure that all students have been able to progress to the next stage of their education.”
