We are delighted to announce that our Year 11 cohort achieved a set of results that defies the setbacks of Covid and demonstrates that with excellent teaching and engaged students all obstacles can be overcome. Not only are these results similar to the centre assessed grades of 2020 they are better than our similarly examined grades of 2019.
The College has worked hard to support students through the very real anxieties that arose from the national lockdown but has not compromised its expectations around strong attendance, positive behaviour and high-quality teaching and learning. These results are testament to the sense of community and respect that Catmose develops where individuals can grow and shine.
Stuart Williams, Principal said ‘We have not achieved this through focusing only on examinations. A strong community rises from a culture that encourages students to embrace opportunities of all kinds. At Catmose our broad offer of extracurricular opportunities is regularly cited by students as one of our greatest strengths. Activities and events such as our drama performances, music ensembles and concerts, the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award, trips abroad and in the UK, a vast range of sports teams, after College clubs, competitions and our weekly Electives programme help to foster engagement that begins the process of personal growth. Our ethos of opportunity for all helps our students to become more confident, and resilient. It is this resilience and determination that then allows them to accept the challenges of their academic goals and perform so well and consistently year after year. We would like to congratulate all of our students on their results this year and the teachers and support staff who have helped them to realise their success’.
If you would like your child to flourish in the ethos and culture that helps Catmose students to be rounded, happy and successful, then please do come along to our Open Evening on Wednesday 4 October 2023, 5.30pm – 7.30pm and see for yourself how we do it.
