'Congratulations to all our students on their achievements.  It has been a very challenging and disruptive year for them.  Grades were determined through a process of teacher assessment against a national standard and then approved and awarded by examination boards.  Our students worked hard and showed determination and commitment throughout the process. 

Staff also worked tirelessly to ensure the process was fair and robust, and to give students opportunity to show what they can achieve.  We are very proud of our students and how they have managed in difficult circumstances.  We wish them all the very best for the future.'

Keith Grainger, Principal, Garth Hill College

We would like to congratulate students on their achievements this year.  It has been challenging for them.  Whilst students did not get the opportunity to sit their final exams, they have worked incredibly hard over many years and we recognise their discipline and commitment this year in working towards their teacher assessed grades.  We wish them all the very best and every success for the future. 

Staff worked tirelessly and diligently to determine the teacher assessed grades based on students’ work and performance and the process was fair and robust.  The teacher assessed grades overall represent the very strong track record of student success in our Sixth Form in recent years.   

Keith Grainger, Principal, Garth Hill College


We are absolutely thrilled with the results from our young people. They have worked extremely hard throughout these difficult times to obtain excellent results for their next steps. Despite working through some of the most difficult years in recent history, our students have shown great resilience, community, and spirit. Their ambition, dedication and sense of purpose has been magnificent. These young people really are our future and it has been an honour to be a part of their secondary school career. We wish all of our young people the very best as they take their first steps into the world beyond Sixth Form.

Katie Fatania, Head of Sixth Form, Garth Hill College


These results are a testament to the continued focused work, of students and staff at Garth Hill College. An ALPS score of 1 confirms a three-year trend of ALPS which firmly establishes our Sixth Form in the top 25% of providers in the country. A three-year score of ALPS 3 demonstrates the consistency of quality education in the Sixth Form, the resilience of our students and staff and our commitment to work together to be the best we can be.

Garth Hill College - GCSE Results 2020

Following Monday’s announcement by the Department for Education, we were relieved and pleased to learn that GCSE and A Level students would be awarded their centre assessment grades this year.

We fully appreciate that it has been a difficult and trying time for our young people. We are delighted for the students who have worked hard over many years and congratulate them on their achievements. We wish them all the very best for the future.

Teachers made carefully considered judgements based on a clear rationale and a robust range of existing available evidence. Garth Hill staff followed Ofqual’s procedures correctly and with integrity.

The most important thing in all of this is that students are able to go onto the next stage of their lives and staff will provide the support, advice and guidance that students need at this time. We congratulate pupils on their GCSE examination success particularly given the difficult circumstances they faced this year. Well done to everyone concerned.
