Imogen (centre) achieved all 9s in her GCSEs and is a keen performer in Barney’s drama productions

Among Barney’s high GCSE performers for 2021 was Imogen, who secured all 9s in her results, in spite of the challenges brought about by COVID-19.

“I am relieved after putting in so much hard work in the final term where we completed many more assessments than we were used to,” said Imogen, who will study French, German, Chemistry and Mathematics at Barney Sixth Form.

“The whole experience – and uncertainty surrounding examinations – was quite stressful to begin with, but I learnt how to remain calm and just focus on what I could control.”

As shown in the picture used on this page, Imogen is a keen participant in the School’s drama and music productions, which she hopes to continue throughout her Sixth Form experience.
