Neil Harding, Principal, commented, “These GCSE results represent years of hard work and dedication by committed students and staff with excellent support from parents. The fact that these students were not able to take their final examination papers does not diminish their achievements and these grades have complete integrity in line with the progress these wonderful students had made over many years of hard work in their studies, as well as in the excellent progress TQEA students usually make during their time here. Congratulations to the Class of 2020. Their results are richly and truly deserved and we look forward to celebrating with them in the future”.
