We are very proud of the achievements of our students and we help every child to learn and develop a wide range of skills and attributes.
We encourage students to be aspirational and support them in working hard in order to achieve academic excellence and self-fulfilment.
The progress that our students make takes commitment and a determination to succeed, regardless of background or prior educational ability.
We place a great deal of emphasis on the partnership that exists between school and home.
At Anthony Gell School we know that when teachers, students and parents work together the chances of success are much greater.
'AGS Students Achieve Excellent Results at A Level and GCSE After a School Year Like No Other'
Students from Anthony Gell School were overjoyed to pick up their results this year after spending months out of school and not having the chance to sit examinations at the end of their courses due to Coronavirus restrictions. Many opted to collect their results from the school in person, and were grateful to see school staff again as they opened their envelopes with the usual amount of trepidation.
The unique situation students in Year 11 and 13 were faced with in 2020 resulted understandably in increased anxiety, with late changes in national guidance adding to the uncertainty. Fortunately for the students of AGS, staff were on hand to help and offer the support which is such a strong feature of the school.
Mr Kelly, Headteacher, was pleased with the outcomes and said “the grades our students have achieved this year are a true reflection of their ability. They should be proud of what they have achieved and I am pleased to see our students being able to take their planned next steps. Their teachers have worked hard during the period of lockdown to ensure our Centre Assessed Grades were accurate and appropriate. Staff have carefully followed Ofqual directions and have been able to use our detailed assessment data for each student to calculate a realistic end point. Our Centre Assessed Grades at A Level were not downgraded anywhere near as much as they have been in other schools and this is a testament to the level of accuracy and how thorough we were when generating the CAGs. It was, as it always is, a delight to see our students react with a mixture of surprise, excitement and relief as they opened their results envelopes with family members looking on. This year sees more students than ever gaining places in their preferred choice of university, with others securing places on sought after apprenticeships. The GCSE results also enable all of our hard working students the chance to move on to something well-suited to their talents and aspirations, with the majority of Year 11 gaining places in our highly successful Sixth Form.”
