Spreading the joy

News

Throughout the last year students at Archbishop Blanch Church of England High School have faced a great deal of adversity in addition to the usual challenges of A-level studies – to see their faces of joy on results day was absolutely phenomenal. Not only did students achieve impressive, hard-earned results, but also secured their university places or next steps and the school could not be prouder. Students endured rigorous assessments and tests in addition to dealing with multiple lockdowns and periods of isolation. However, with their fastidious nature, they overcame these hurdles and achieved outstanding results. All staff at the school are incredibly proud of each and every one of its students and are pleased to celebrate their hard work, effort and achievement. Despite the challenging circumstances of the last two years, its students have demonstrated immense resilience, maturity and strength of character. Headteacher, Mrs Madeloso said: “The last eighteen months have been an extremely challenging time in school. There have been many highs and lows, we have not enjoyed sending children home to isolate, have lost the vibrancy of a full school and we have missed community events. “This made results days even more enjoyable. Students were really put through the mill with the intensity of robust ongoing assessment and the uncertainty of the year. They were all a little apprehensive arriving for results, so their happiness and excitement was even more tangible. “We are so proud of the students and their families for their determination to succeed throughout a time of uncertainty. They have achieved so much and have developed skills that will make them so much more resilient in the future.”
