AGFS scholars celebrate top GCSE marks

12th July 2021

Scholars from Ark Greenwich Free School (AGFS) have achieved top GCSE grades after what has been another challenging academic year. With the continued disruption to their education, scholars could not take examinations in the usual way and instead received teacher-assessed grades based on what they had been taught, not what they missed.

AGFS was quick to switch to live remote learning during periods of lockdown which limited the potential impact of lost learning. A network-wide initiative meant that devices were provided to scholars in need, and an effective catch-up programme targeted those most in need of additional support. 

Among the school’s highest performers in this year’s GCSEs were:

AGFS Headteacher, Mr Spiers said: “Despite the turbulence and uncertainty of the last 18-months, our scholars have demonstrated real strength of character. Their determination to overcome all obstacles and commitment to their studies will hold them in good stead for post-16 education and beyond. I am so proud of what they have achieved and wish them every success for the next exciting phase of their journey. I’d also like to take the opportunity to pay tribute to our dedicated staff who have kept standards so high throughout this period”.
