Kantor King Solomon ‘disappointed’ by cancellation of exams

Kantor King Solomon High School said it remains “disappointed that the cancellation of examinations has led to a system that robs our students of the opportunity to demonstrate what they have learnt.”

Headteacher Hannele Reece said: “I am disappointed that the debacle around the way students’ results have been calculated has led to a situation where students are judged on the basis of a moderation system that has not seen any of their work.

“Having already coped with the challenges of Covid-19 and unprecedented school closures they are now being asked to accept results that may determine their futures on the basis of a statistical exercise.”

The school said its fine art, digital, photography, geography and Spanish departments “performed exceptionally well despite the confusion around results.”

Top performers include pupils Jack Chevin, Ellie Grant, Anava Maman, Saule Miskinyte, Latifah Nalubwama, Aimee Nossek, Justas Pakstys, Pristesh Patel, Harris Singh, Jaspreet Singh, Iman Tai and Jacob West, the school said.
