Following the cancellation of external examinations due to Covid, grades were awarded from Teacher Assessed Grades.

As part of this examination process, students had to sit moderated exams and complete a variety of coursework.

Staff at the Shoreham Academy took this morning to recognise students’ hard work throughout the pandemic but also throughout their five years as pupils at the school.

“This is an exceptional year in terms of how qualifications are being awarded but likewise this is an exceptional group of students who have had to show levels of maturity, confidence, flexibility and determination beyond their years.
