Congratulations to the PSC Class of 2020

We are immensely proud of our students and of their examination achievements published today. These results are being awarded under extraordinary circumstances and not circumstances that any of us would have chosen. However, it is important to recognise and celebrate the hard work and commitment of our students over the eighteen months of their study with us.

Whilst concerns about this years’ process for the awarding of grades are well known, today at Symonds is about celebrating our students’ considerable achievements and ensuring that they are in a position to progress. The last minute announcements regarding changes to the appeals process will have been deeply unsettling for many students and parents at a particularly challenging time, so our priority is to help them navigate the routes open to them so that no student is disadvantaged by this year’s extraordinary circumstances.

Principal Sara Russell said: "In some ways this year’s results are results like no others, but just as in any other year, the students have every right to be proud of what they have achieved, and what they will now progress to do.

"It will remain a source of huge regret for us that we have not been able to celebrate these results with the students in person. Class of 2020, we are extremely proud of you and your determination."

A level results for 2020 at Peter Symonds College are as follows:

  • A level (full) pass rate: 98%
  • A level Grades A*-B: 60%
  • A level Grades A*-C: 81%
