This has been a very challenging year for all involved in education but for learners who were due to sit exams this year it has been really hard. They have missed out on so many of the experiences that learners have previously taken for granted and they have faced uncertainty and anxiety of an unpresented level around their results.
That is why we are especially delighted to see so many of our Year 11 learners in school once again today celebrating their deserved success. We are delighted with their outcomes and they fully reflect their hard work and dedication throughout their years at HHS. At the same time, it is sad to say goodbye today but we are pleased that so many of them will be back in a few weeks as they enrol into our sixth form.
There are so many GCSE stories which could be shared but a special mention to the Year 11 Head boy and girls of 2020. Ilanthiraiyan Sivagnananamoorthy, Head Boy, celebrates with a well-deserved clean sweep of 11 grade 9’s across all subjects. Head Girls Pranvera Merkaj and Anne-Rosa Bilal also secure the clean sweep of 11 grade 9s.
At A-Level and Level 3 BTEC, we have had many successes, with nearly all of our students off to study at their first choice universities. Special mentions to Aleksa Kirilova who achieved A*A*A and will be studying Politics and Economics at LSE, and Suela Merkaj who also achieved A*A*A and will be studying Medicine at Plymouth. Asma Laiche achieved a clean sweep of Triple Distinction* in her BTEC Science course, and will now train to be a Physiotherapist
