A Level Exams Results 2021

56% of grades were recorded at A*

98% of grades recorded at A* to B

Sixth form students, parents and staff are celebrating another fantastic set of A-level results; 98% of grades were A* to B with 56% achieving the very highest grade of A*. The school has for the last few years been in the top 1% of schools nationally for A-level performance and this year’s results show just how dedicated Sherfield students and their teachers are.

Nick Brain, Headmaster, is thrilled with the results. He commented “despite an unprecedented year, the hard work and motivation of our students has paid off and these outcomes are a real credit to them. Sherfield teachers are always committed to supporting students achieve what they want in life. We wish every student all the very best as they prepare for the next chapter in their lives.”

We are delighted with the performance of all their students. Our Head Boy and Girl both did fantastically well and are both going on to study History at Exeter. Oisin Maguire achieved 2 A*s, 1 A and an A* in EPQ. Emilie Grant achieved 1 A*, 2 As and an A* in EPQ.

A few other highlights include; James Curtis, who will be studying Computer Science at Kings College and Simon Xu, who is going on to study Chemical Engineering at Imperial College. James and Simon both got 4 A* grades. Sasha Pankhurst is going on to study Fashion Marketing at Southampton and achieved 3 A* grades. Jack Murray, who achieved 3 Distinction* grades, is going on to study Business Management at Aberdeen. Zahra and Srividya have both secured offers to study medicine.

Deputy Head, Chris James-Roll commented that, “all our sixth formers will be leaving with a great set of qualifications but more importantly, they are the most caring and dedicated bunch of young adults you could hope to meet, many of whom have been with us since nursery. They now leave us with the wide array of attributes and skills needed to be successful in a global society ready to face the challenges of the 21st century.”

This year’s A-levels have been very unusual, with continuous assessment forming the basis for judgements but they have been none the less rigorous and all students around the country going through the process this year should be very proud of all they have achieved.

Ms Seamark, Head of Sixth Form commented “I am so proud of the A-level and BTEC results achieved by our students this year, which is testament to their hard work and endeavour, as well as the dedication of their teachers in supporting them over the last two years. I have nothing but admiration for the way that students adapted to online learning and remained positive about their studies despite the uncertainty that ensued as a result of the pandemic. I look forward to hearing of their many successes over the coming years.” 


GCSE Exam Results 2021

60% papers graded A* (9-8)

72% papers graded A* - A (9-7)

100% Pass Rate A* - C (9-4)

We were delighted to see so many smiles and tears of joy as students picked up their GCSE results.

Nick Brain, Headmaster, is proud of student’s individual achievements. He commented “students have had immeasurable anxiety and uncertainty regarding their futures recently but the academic and pastoral staff have been supporting the students through this unsettling time and we are immensely proud of how they have adapted and all they have achieved. They could have easily lost motivation but all their hard work and positive attitude has paid off and these outcomes are a real credit to them. We look forward to welcoming many of them back in September to start Sixth Form.”

We are proud with the performance of all our students. Fourteen students have achieved grade 9 in at least five of their GCSEs. Aimee, Ruby and Kiera all achieved 11 grade 9s. Datrim and Gethin achieved 12 GCSEs grades 9-8. Elliott and Matthew achieved 11 grade 9-8 GCSEs. Neil passed 14 GCSEs and achieved grades 9-8 and A* in 11 of them.

Kiera, who joined Sherfield in the Nursery, said “I’m really happy all our hard work has paid off. We sat three exams a day from March to June so in many ways this process has been more fair as anyone can have an off day.

Caroline, who has achieved 11 GCSEs grades 9-8, said “It’s been so great to be here celebrating with my friends and family in person. The staff have been so supportive and helpful and I’m happy and relieved with the outcome and what my future holds.”

Results are just a snapshot of performance. We aspire to create well-rounded individuals and what we are most proud of is the resilience and versatility the students have all shown.

Head of Seniors, Duncan Page commented that, “it has been great to see so many happy pupils and proud parents collecting their results.  Given the uncertainties and pressures of the last two years, these excellent GCSE results are thoroughly well-deserved.  In some ways, the effort and stoicism which our pupils have had to demonstrate over such a sustained period has presented them with extra challenges when compared to a ‘normal’ year.  I am delighted for all of them.“

This year’s GCSEs have been once again modified, with a robust internal process of continuous assessment forming the basis for judgements, but they have been none the less rigorous and all students around the country going through the process this year should be very proud of all they have achieved.
