It is the morning of 15 August and here at GIY, the atmosphere is tense. Our eyes rarely stray away from our phones as we keenly await the call. That nail biting habit rears its ugly head, well it’s the only thing we can do while we wait for A-Level results to be sent through the ether to our students’ computers. 2 hours later the phone rings, formalities are skipped and straight to the point. Let’s have it then? A in History, A in Physics and A* in Mathematics! Success!
At GIY our interests are so aligned with our students that we often can’t help but share in the same anxiety, expectation and nervy habits that our students feel while waiting for their results. This particular student had been a part of the GIY programme for the last four years and we had seen them achieve 8 A* and 1 A at GCSE level and now the A-Level grades – so what next for our student? Law at University of Warwick awaits. For us, a reaffirmation of our commitment to the GIY programme and the values we strive to instill in all of our students.
A week later we repeat the exam anticipation ritual with one of our GCSE students. Results come in and it’s more good news – 9A*s and 1 A.
Phew! What a stressful month August had been. However, when we see how much we can inspire our students to achieve, it makes this all worthwhile.
As we start the journey once more with the current GIY cohort looking to sit their exams in the summer of next year we are confident that our robust formula will ensure our students achieve the success that their passion for learning, perseverance and our tailor made approach to educating them deserves.
