Shortlisted for the TES Schools Awards 2020: Pinner High School

Tes editor Ann Mroz said: “It is always a highlight of the education calendar to see the best ideas and people lauded at the Tes Schools Awards. But this year, it felt more important than ever to run an event that showcased and celebrated the hard work that teachers and school staff do for children and their local community every single day. This has been one of the most difficult years in education, but – as ever – teachers continue to rise to the challenge.

Hoe Valley School GCSE Results Day

Hoe Valley School in Woking was delighted to open its doors this morning to provide its founding cohort of students with their GCSE results. Many Woking residents will remember the build up to the School opening as news of the new Free School spread. This has been a year like no other, but especially for Hoe Valley School seeing its first students through to their GCSEs. Following the nationwide lockdown, it was wonderful to be able to share their results with them in person, socially distanced of course!

Exam success at Kingston’s newest Outstanding school

Delighted pupils were invited to collect their results from 9.00am on 20th August and their hard work and efforts certainly paid off, despite the national changes to the way that GCSE results were derived this year as a result of school closures. While league tables have not been published this academic year, Year 11 pupils at the school achieved exceptional results, which, in ordinary circumstances, firmly places the school well above average compared to other schools both locally and nationally.
