Students at Adeyfield Academy in Hemel Hempstead are celebrating another year of successful A-level results.

With the coronavirus pandemic preventing students from sitting exams this year, the results are based on teacher assessment grades which have been standardised.

Now students in England awaiting their exam results can keep their grades in mock exams if they are higher than the calculated grade, with regulator Ofqual asked to determine how and when valid mock results can be used.

Principal Dawn Mason said: "Our young people have once again proven what resilient and determined members of our local community they are, by producing another year of growth for our Key Stage 5 results.

"Despite the interruptions to their learning, they have continued to work tirelessly to ensure that they are achieving and exceeding the limitless aspirations they set for themselves.

"This has been reflected in some of our best results for Key Stage 5 in some time, and shows the impact our high quality teaching is having across the school.

"All of the above signpost another year of academic growth for our young learners.

"As Principal, I would like to take this opportunity to say a huge congratulations to all of our fantastic Year 13 students; as well as the staff and parents behind the scenes.

"All of which have gone above and beyond to help secure bright and purposeful futures for our young people.

"Well done everyone!"
