GCSE Results 2021 – another outstanding year for Wellfield
We are celebrating another outstanding year of GCSE results in 2021. Students have been praised for their achievement, which has been made despite the extreme challenges that Covid has presented. They worked extremely hard after the first national lockdown and returned to school in June 2020 with a determined attitude to succeed. This was evident during the summer holidays in 2020 when over 70% of students attended 3 weeks of academic ‘Catch Up’ Summer School. The start of year 11 in September saw the same determination to work hard and achieve with after school ‘Get Exam Ready’ classes attended by all students.
