We are delighted to celebrate the GCSE and BTEC results achieved by our Y11 students today. After an anxious wait, the students were keen to open their envelopes and celebrate with their friends.
There are many individual success stories and we are delighted to share in these.
The following students have achieved excellent results with a number of A* and A grades:
Emily Porter 7 A*, 4 A
Chloe Norton – 2 A*, 6 A, 2 B
Daniel Rose – 2 A*, 6 A, 2 B
James Barratt – 2 A*, 5 A, 2 B
Joy Harker – 1 A*, 7 A, 1 B
The following students have passed all their GCSE exams at grades A*-B:
William Deeks – 7 A and 2 B
Leah Hanlon – 2 A and 6 B
Sunny Sunwar – 1 A*, 5 A and 1 B
Francesca Whitehall – 1 A*, 4 A, 3 B
We are pleased with these results which reflect the hard work that our students, along with their teachers, have put in to their studies. In the national context of GCSE exams becoming ever harder our students have continued to demonstrate the progress they have made with 56% of them achieving A*-C in both GCSE English and GCSE Maths, 3% higher than last year’s results. Once again, we are delighted at the number of our students who have made better than expected progress, particularly in English; at 85% this is significantly higher than progress made in English nationally last year (73%).
Liz Cook, Headteacher, has said ‘I would like to congratulate all of those students who have worked hard to achieve these results. They are a reflection of their commitment, as well as the dedication of the staff at the school, who have worked with them. These results will stand them in excellent stead when they start the next phase of their education and I look forward to welcoming many students back to join EPCS6 in September.’
