This year, AS and A level exams did not take place because of the disruption to students’ education caused by the coronavirus pandemic.

Instead, grades were determined by teachers based on a range of evidence, known as teacher assessed grades.

The Chesterfield Road South school’s top performer, Abby Stafford, received A*s in English literature, English language and film studies and is going to the University of Warwick to study English literature and creative writing.
