It has been a turbulent time for the Year 12 pupils, with schools being closed and exams being cancelled. However, the hard work and dedication of the students was rightly rewarded with a very pleasing set of results.
An impressive 58 pupils achieved at least 5A or A* grades in full course GCSE subjects with 43 pupils achieving 7A or A* grades or above. Emma Mulholland, Ella Wilson-Stevenson, Amy McCollum, Romy Orr and Kiana Walker all achieved at least 5A*s, Ellis Harte achieved 7A*s and 3As, Molly McKee, Mark Cusick and Sarah Cromie all achieved at least 8A*s, Sophie Galbraith 9A*s and Jamie Carruthers 9A*s and an A.
Many other pupils also achieved admirable grades which allow them to progress to the next stage in their education.
Headmaster, Dr Carruthers added: “This has been a challenging year for all pupils and in particular the pupils who were to sit external exams. We have ensured that the Centre Assessment Grades that the pupils have been awarded are as close to pupils’ realistic GCSE outcomes as possible.
“The pleasing results that the GCSE pupils have achieved this year is a testament to their dedication to their studies, and to the on-going commitment and professionalism of their teachers. I would like to congratulate all the pupils, express my thanks to the teaching and support staff, and thank parents for their continued support.”
