Headteacher at Highgate Wood, Patrick Cozier said…
‘We are again delighted with this set of GCSE results. We are proud of how well our students have done, particularly given the challenges and disruption of the last two years. Our students have worked so hard, supported each other so well and now they have the chance to celebrate some amazing outcomes.
This year group has achieved results that are broadly comparable with our highest ever achieving cohort in 2019, which is a truly remarkable success given the circumstances. Their attitude has always been positive and determined and we are thrilled for them that they have done so well. We look forward to seeing the vast majority back with us in September to join our successful sixth form.
In respect of this and the excellent A’ Level results last week, I am also indebted to my staff who continue to show excellent commitment in supporting the students every step of the way. I am proud of them all and would like to take this opportunity to thank them publicly.’
A Level Results 2022.
Highgate Wood is delighted with a very good set of A level results. This is particularly pleasing given that this cohort of students had never previously sat public examinations.
Our students achieved 36% A*/A grades (compared to the national average of 26.4%), and over 60% of grades achieved by our students were A* to B. We are also thrilled to announce that our average grade across all students in our year 13 cohort is a Grade B. The progress made by our Sixth Form students continues to be excellent, placing is comfortably in the top 25% of sixth forms and colleges nationally.

Head Teacher Patrick Cozier sums up the mood when commenting,
‘We are so proud of our amazing students, whose dedication, resilience and hard work has allowed them to achieve these excellent and well-deserved results. The examination results are also a testament to the professionalism and energy of our staff who have supported these students so brilliantly and with such commitment along the way. This has been the most extraordinary and testing time for our young people following the disruption created by Covid, so to see them triumph the way they have is truly inspiring.’
Director of 6th Form, Lindsay Pinnick said,
‘Our year 13 have been just brilliant. They have been through the most challenging of times and given that this year’s exams were their first ever public exams, I could not be prouder of them. The maturity they have shown and their commitment to their studies and supporting each other has been very touching to witness.’
She added, ‘At Highgate Wood we continue to push more and more students toward the top A level grades and with these grades toward application to leading Universities whilst at the same time supporting the social and emotional well-being of all students, which has been a particular priority for this cohort of students. The grades achieved this year by our students gives them all such fantastic opportunities and the potential to move on to great futures. I would like to commend the effort and hard work from our students and thank the supportive families and excellent teachers.’
