Principal Lesley Bishop said: 

“We are incredibly proud of all our Year 11 students. Despite the many challenges they have faced, they have achieved fantastic results and that is down to sheer hard work and dedication. We are as ever impressed by the effort they have consistently applied, their resilience and above all their commitment to their education. We are really pleased today to be able to acknowledge  and celebrate their achievements and share in their successful progression onto the next step in their education.

I would also like to take this opportunity to thank the dedicated  staff  who have worked incredibly hard and have been totally committed in supporting  our students throughout their time with us. Finally , I would  like to wish all of our students the very best for the future and know that they will go on to achieve many great things.

Case studies: 

Caitlin Lane  (Head Girl)  is this year’s best-performing student at Atlantic. Among some of her achievements were 4 Grade 9s, 1 grade 8 ,1 grade 7, A* and a Distinction. She said: ‘I enjoyed the online learning but it was more difficult than if you were in school. You don’t have the opportunity to build social skills. We had regular mentoring sessions and the staff were amazing and I can’t fault them. “Planning on going to Hardye’s, do my exchange and go to France and then A-levels. Some kind of law career or financial law.”

Finlay Short  (Head Boy) His achievements included  2 grade 9s, 3 grade 8s, 1 grade 7 and a Distinction*: “I’m happy with the results but pleased overall. It was stressful obviously but I think I handled it quite well and the school handled it really well. I don’t think there was more that we could do. I’m going on to do Thomas Hardye: Biology, Chemistry, Maths & Further Maths. 

Poppy Clarke  achieved 1  grade 9, 4 grade 8s, 3 grade 7s and a Distinction: “I put in a lot of hard work and it paid off. The school supported us a lot, all the after-school revision sessions and the encouragement.  I am going to Study A-levels at Thomas Hardye, History, Law & Psychology. The last two years have been really hard but I had lots of family encouragement and talking to my mentor at school.”

Katie Gregg:  achieved 1 grade 9, 2 grade 8s  and 3 grade 7s: “I don’t think I could have done much better than I received today. I was very nervous about the exams and the results but all the hard work paid off. I’m going to do A-levels at Thomas Hardye. 

NiamhWhite:  achieved 1 grade 9, 1 grade 8, 4 grade 7s and a Distinction*. She said: “I’m relieved. I got the grades I wanted. We were doing mocks and the school was very supportive, couldn’t have done more. Hoping to go to Thomas Hardye Sixth Form and do chemistry and Biology and Geography.”
