We are so proud of what our students have achieved ...

We are incredibly proud of the results the students have received today. The students have overcome many challenges in their five years of secondary education, not least the interruptions caused by the Covid lockdowns of 2020 and 2021. However, their determination to improve and their desire to gain the very best outcomes for themselves has seen so many successes within today’s results.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone involved in these results. Our staff have been extraordinary in their professionalism and determination to ensure that our students overcame the barriers in front of them.  The staff have worked with a unity of purpose to ensure the results were as strong as possible and it is always a delight to witness the close working relationships and sense of community that support this at Maiden Erlegh Chiltern Edge. I would also like to express our gratitude to the parents who have supported the students and the school so robustly in the last five years. We wish everyone involved all the best for their future.

We are also incredibly proud of the results and what they show about the impact of the new leadership team and the positive consequences of being part of the Maiden Erlegh Trust team. Since taking over the school in late 2018 the Trust has worked with a steely determination to ensure its students receive the best possible education. As Headteacher, it is my pleasure to work within the school and the Trust and with a set of professionals who work so hard and with great focus and diligence to improve the lives of the young people they teach and the community we serve. These results are testimony to that endeavour.

We are also really thrilled for our students and their Post 16 destinations as they go off to study at Kendrick School, Reading School, Piggott School, Highdown School, Kennet School, Berkshire College of Agriculture, Henley College and Reading College. We are delighted that they have secured these places but whether it be A-Levels, Apprenticeships or Diplomas we are sure they will seize the opportunities they have obtained through their effort and fortitude and make a great success of their future lives.
