Mrs Ayres commented, ‘These results are exceptional in every sense of the word. Our Year 11 pupils should feel very proud of what they have achieved in such difficult circumstances. Their GCSE journey was full of challenges, but the pupils have demonstrated, through a robust and rigorous assessment process, strong evidence to justify these outstanding grades. I am very grateful to our teachers who worked incredibly hard to support and assess each pupil with such dedication and I am full of admiration for our young people who have risen to the challenge. These exceptional results are only a small part of what they will leave Leehurst with. Their values, teamwork, personal achievements, firm friendships and memories will remain with them for life.'

Mr Ayres remarked, 'This year there were a number of twists and turns in the lead up to the GCSE results being released but the staff and Senior Leadership Team remained extremely confident, safe in the knowledge that our rigour in collating evidence, moderating results and comparing predicted grades with past performance throughout their senior years, that the students would get the results they had worked so hard for and deserved. The Year 11 pupils achieved an excellent set of grades and all were able to take up their first choice of destination for their 6th Form Studies; well done to all!'
