“We are very proud of the results attained by all our students. The picture remains provisional while the political backdrop evolves but at this point over 61% of calculated grades are at A*/A.
“We are pleased that in the great majority of cases our students’ hard work and dedication during their time at The Abbey has been recognised in the standardisation process and we congratulate them as they continue their learning journey at leading universities around the UK.
“We also acknowledge the challenge all our students face in light of ongoing uncertainty. The Abbey is committed to ensuring each student receives the necessary advice and support to guide them seamlessly towards their next life chapter. We know that all young people will be concerned that the process should be as fair as possible for themselves and their peers. Along with all schools we share that concern and will keep the situation closely under review over the coming days.
“No one chooses the times in which they live. We are deeply impressed by the mature and measured way our students have dealt with this unprecedented situation. More than outstanding results, it is their initiative, tenacity and commitment that will see them go on to thrive whatever the future holds. They leave our community as outward-looking and independent-minded young women looking to make their mark in the wider world. We wish them well.
“The warmest and most heartfelt thanks go to our inspirational teaching staff. Their dedication and inventiveness in the light of recent challenges have been so much appreciated. More than that I acknowledge their tireless efforts to develop and extend our students’ thirst for learning, both in this cohort and in those who preceded them. Without them, these outstanding results would not have been possible.”
