A-Level Results 2020

We are delighted that we have built on last year’s results, which saw Cheney’s Sixth Form become the best state funded Sixth Form in the city by progress.

Our assessment of the ‘estimated grades’ provided by the exam boards is that we can expect these results to improve even further based on the government’s “triple lock” commitment.

Despite these very strange times, we must acknowledge the hard work and commitment of the students and staff at Cheney School over the course of many years and not just one.

Rupert Moreton, Head Teacher, said:

“We appreciate that the end of Sixth Form has felt very strange and flat for many of our Year 13 students as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic.  However, they should be immensely proud of their results.  They may not have sat exams, but we all recognise and celebrate their hard work and commitment.  We are very pleased to see continued improvement this year, building on the success of last year. Our results show that a truly comprehensive school can have academic excellence as a central focus.  This is a testament to the hard work of our students and staff. Well done to them.”

We are particularly pleased with the performance in Art, Classical Civilisation, Design Technology, English Literature, Further Mathematics and Mathematics, where more than 40% of our students achieved an A* or A.  Additionally, 100% of our students achieved an A* to C in  Art, Classical Civilisation, Product Design and Further Mathematics.

There were also many notable successes in other subjects.
