Examination Results Day
Results of A Level examinations will be available in School on Thursday 16th August, and for GCSE examinations on Thursday 23rd August. Our Examinations Officer, Mrs Cleaton, has written separately to those concerned about this. In line with more than sixty other independent schools such as Eton, St. Paul’s, Winchester, Marlborough and Radley; we have made the decision this year not to publish our results to the Independent Schools Council in August. These figures are used by national newspapers to construct ‘league tables’ of schools, which can lead to a situation where decisions are made on the basis of what is good for the institution, rather than for the individual child. This does not sit well with our values and the individualised approach in Stover, and we do not feel that it is in the best interests of education as a whole.
