Students sitting A Level qualifications this summer in 8 Inspired schools across 4 continents excelled once more, with 6 of these schools reporting record results, despite the toughest of years for students and their teachers. With global group averages of 21% A* grades, 46% A*-A grades and 84% A*-C grades, students have risen to the challenges set by restrictions across the globe this year, proven the depth of their abilities and now move on to the best universities around the world. Determined to ensure student aspirations in this final year at school were fulfilled, teachers across Inspired schools switched seamlessly, when required by national lockdowns, to live, continuous virtual learning. This enabled students to maintain the great academic progress they were achieving in the classroom.
Nadim Nsouli, Founder, Chairman and CEO of Inspired Group proudly reflects “we are determined that an Inspired education should equip our students for lifelong learning, access to the best universities in the world, and the character to embrace whatever challenges life throws at them – students have met the highest of bars in this particularly difficult year, and thoroughly deserve the excellent results and university places that they have now achieved.”
Nick Wergan, Global Education Director for Inspired Group, notes “the excellent subject knowledge and pedagogical skills of our teachers have been tested to the limit this year – and they have again ensured our students achieve their full potential and lock in the most exciting of fixtures, however difficult the circumstances this year.”
