GCSE Results 2022

Sir William Romney’s School – GCSE Results 2022
Jon Bell, the school’s headteacher said:
“I would like to congratulate all of our Year 11 students who are collecting their GCSE and BTEC results today. Despite the disruption and challenges faced throughout their courses, these results exemplify our students’ resilience and aspiration.
We are delighted that so many students have achieved the very highest grades to progress to their preferred sixth form destinations. We are equally as proud of the vast majority of students who have achieved strong passes in their English, Maths, Science and Foundation subjects and will also progress to their chosen colleges and apprenticeships. I know that our school community will look forward to hearing about their future successes in whichever pathway they choose to pursue.
In agreement with colleagues in other schools locally and nationally, we believe it is not appropriate to compare these results to previous years due to the nature of the grading arrangements used by the exam boards in this first post pandemic set of examination results. It is also not appropriate to compare the results of one school to another due to the uneven impact of COVID related staff and student absences in different schools.
I would also like to thank not only our teachers but also our entire staff team who have worked tirelessly to ensure students are all able to progress onto further education and study. As a school community, we have worked hard to provide an inspirational curriculum that challenges all students to achieve their highest academic outcomes and equip them to be aspirational, resilient and collaborative young adults.”

Heatwave / 18th & 19th July

Reminder that due to the anticipated heatwave on Monday 18th and Tuesday 19th July, students will be allowed to wear their PE kits instead of their school uniform on both days.
We would welcome your support in ensuring that students wear their PE kits and not other inappropriate garments on these days.
The Sports Hall will be open at break and lunchtime. Students are asked to use this space rather than the fields which have no shade.
Please encourage students to bring sufficient water throughout the school day – Perhaps freeze a water bottle or two overnight!

Announcement / Proms in the Park

As a community we have been working hard towards our summer event Proms in the Park which, after three years of absence and uncertainty, was due to take place on Monday 18th July at 6:30pm.

The Met office have forecast temperatures of up to 37 degrees Celsius for Monday 18th July, well into the evening, which poses a risk to health. As a result, I have taken the decision to cancel this year’s event. Whilst I appreciate this decision will be met with some disappointment, the health, safety and wellbeing of our students and local community has always been our absolute priority.

Please look after yourself and others during the coming heatwave, particularly those who might be considered vulnerable.

Dear Parents/Carers,
In response to the anticipated heatwave on Monday 18th and Tuesday 19th July, students will be allowed to wear their PE kits instead of their school uniform on both days.  I would welcome your support in ensuring that students wear their PE kits and not other inappropriate garments on these days.
Additionally, we will open our Sports Hall at break and lunchtime. Students are asked to use this space rather than the fields which have no shade.
Please could you also encourage students to bring sufficient water throughout the school day.
Thank you again for your support,
