August 23rd, 2018 | School News

Writhlington School is celebrating another year of terrific GCSE Results. Students, family, friend and teachers gathered together to celebrate the hard work of students with many students achieving impressive high grades in the new GCSEs.

The school is exceptionally proud of the increase in top grades for English, Maths and the Sciences with a impressive number of students achieving 7 to 9 grades in their GCSEs. More students achieved the higher 5+ grades in English and Maths than last year’s national as well as the 4 grades, allowing them the opportunity to follow their academic passions in Post 16.

The government have made it clear that the new GCSE is harder with higher grades being more difficult to achieve and because of this the school is especially pleased and proud of the students who have achieved top grades across the board including top grade 9s: Benjamin Beechener (6 x grade 9, 3 x grade 8 and 2 x A grade), Molly Pascoe (5 x grade 9, 3 x Grade 8 and 2 x A grade), Chelsea Smith (5 x grade 9, 2 x grade 8 and 2 x A grade), Emily Serle (5 x grade 9, 1 x grade 8 and 2 x A grade).  In addition, high grades of 9 to 7 were also achieved by Hebe Foulsham, Lucy Bush, James Whalley, Helena Cooper, Yona Schwalbe-Goodwin, Daisie Garland, Kate Lilley, Rebecca Coombs, Ethan Doble and Harriet Evans.

Headteacher Mark Everett said:

I am incredibly pleased with the results of all of our students but not surprised as I have been in the privileged position to watch them work so hard and develop over their time here.  Students come to us from a range of backgrounds and we develop their character, skills, knowledge and understanding through opportunities and this inspires them to achieve. Today we’ve seen that hard work pays off, students who put their best in get what they deserve.  I’m pleased to say that the majority of students have chosen to stay with us in Sixth Form and I wish all of our students the best for their future and that they fulfill their ambitions.
