21st August 2020 — For the second successive week, the pupils and staff of Stover School are celebrating a record-breaking set of results. Pupils in Year 11 have gained GCSE grade 4 and above in 94% of all papers, with 89% of the students achieving 5 or more such grades, including English and Mathematics. Both statistics exceed the best ever recorded at the school. In this most uncertain of years, it is especially pleasing that the hard work put in by the pupils and the staff has been realised in the examination outcomes.
Some individual highlights include Anna Stone with 9 grade 9s and 1 grade 8, James Griffin with 6 grade 9s, a grade 7 and 2 grade 6s and Anna Perkins with 6 grade 9s and 4 grade 8s. It is the dedication and positive commitment across the whole year group which has been most heartening, however, with the majority of students opting to continue their studies online throughout the final term in order to prepare for the next stage of their learning.
Headmaster, Richard Notman said "everyone has been concerned this year due to the uncertainty caused by the withdrawal of the 2020 examination series. Consequently, I am delighted that our pupils have received the results they thoroughly deserve for their hard work over the last 2 to 3 years of GCSE study. Our staff deserve commendation for the professionalism they displayed in guiding the cohort through everything in such a committed, true and fair fashion. Congratulations to all on a job well done.”

A Level Results 2020
This has been a difficult year across the country for A level pupils, and we are delighted that our Year 13 cohort at Stover have achieved outstanding examination results. Stover pupils achieved a 100% pass rate, with over 90% of grades being awarded at A* to C; this represents the best A level outcomes on record.
Particular congratulations should go to Sorrel Penman, with 3 A* grades in Art, Geography and Photography, and an EPQ A grade; Jack Mewett with an A* in Mathematics and A grades in Chemistry, the EPQ, Further Mathematics and Physics; and Anna Ortova with A* grades in Chemistry, Mathematics and Physics, in addition to an EPQ.
Headmaster, Richard Notman, said: “I am immensely proud of the way that our pupils have coped with the adversity and uncertainty that this academic year has presented; their achievements against this backdrop are all the more remarkable. In equal measure, I would like to recognise the absolute professionalism of the Stover staff in delivering the Department of Education’s strategy for our 2020 examination group. Well done to all concerned!”
