Sutton Virtual School achieve record GCSE results

We have seen record year 11 GCSE results where 13% of young people achieved a good pass (grade 5+) in English and Maths (compared to 6% last year) and 29% achieved a grade 4+ in English and maths (up from 6% last year).  These results will allow a greater percentage of our young people to engage in higher level qualifications at post 16 and will have a significantly positive effect on future outcomes.

We have seen an increase in the number of young people gaining a 4+ in En (42% up from 18%) and maths (33% up from 18%).  The number of young people achieving at least one GCSE increased from 53% to 71% and the number of young people achieving 5 or more GCSE at level 4+ rose to 33% from 12%.  We are very proud of the hard work our young people have put in to receive these grades and are very excited that many more young people will be able to access a higher level of post 16 learning to support their future careers.

COVID-19 support

Coronavirus (COVID-19) adoption support fund scheme to help vulnerable families
The Secretary of State for Education has announced that up to £8 million will be available for therapeutic support for families whose adopted children may have already suffered trauma and may be made more anxious owing to the uncertainty of the effects of the virus. Adoptive families will be offered emergency support including online counselling and couples therapy as the government expands the scope of the Adoption Support Fund to meet needs arising from the outbreak of coronavirus (COVID-19).
Further details of this scheme can be found here:
