We’d like to congratulate our pupils receiving their GCSE results today. These results are the culmination of 5 years of work and commitment from both pupils and staff ensuring pupils achieve positive outcomes to form a solid foundation for the next phase of their education.
We are exceptionally proud of all of the pupils and would also like to wish them all the best for their bright futures. There were some fantastic individual performances including;
Emily Murdoch 10 A* and 3 A grades.
Grace Duffy 8 A*, 2 A and a B grade.
Jennifer Speakman 6 A* and 5 A grades.
Helen Thornhill 5 A* and 5 A grades.
As a school we are pleased that our Maths department continue to show an improvement in the progress that pupils make from Key Stage 2 which reflects the improvements in the progress pupils are making across all subjects. The proportion of pupils achieving 5 or more GCSEs at A*-C has improved by over 10% and figure those achieving 5 A*-C including Maths and an English also improved by 5%. As well as the fabulous individual performances what we are also delighted with is the continuing positive trend in progress for the whole year group.
