The Headmaster, Michael Windsor, said:

“I am joined by the whole school community in congratulating the boys on these results. The 2020 Leavers will have a special place in Abingdon’s history and the unusual end to their school careers should not detract from their tremendous achievements. However, it is unfortunate that the confusion surrounding results this year has been such a distraction.

We know how hard our students have worked during their time here and what a capable year group they are. We have seen them mature into the dynamic, accomplished and aspiring gentlemen of today and I have no doubt that they will go on to achieve at university and to lead successful and fulfilling careers.

In any year group at Abingdon there are boys with a diverse range of interests and talent and the 2020 leavers are no exception. Amongst the many achievements boys have won prizes in classical writing competitions, been recognised as having outstanding potential as an opera singer, combined academic success with winning a contract to play professional rugby, won Arkwright Engineering Scholarships, achieved Gold Duke of Edinburgh awards, raised money for numerous charitable causes and reached the last 16 of the National Schools Cup in rugby.

I know the boys will take this unexpected end to their school years in their stride and learn from it. I hope it will help them to be even more determined to make the most out of every opportunity and to use their many and varied talents wisely.

I wish them all the very best for their future endeavours and I look forward to watching their progress.”


These results are provisional and are subject to appeal.
