Chenderit School Headteacher Jane Cartwright said she was ‘delighted’ with the pass success of her year 11 GCSE students.
Of the 171 students taking their exams, 68 percent achieved five or more GCSEs at grades A* to C, with 60 percent of all students achieving five GCSEs including English and maths. The new Progress 8 measure shows that the school’s students made more than expected progress overall and performed in line with the high bench mark set by the students in 2015.
It also marks another outstanding year of excellent academic and personal achievements for Key Stage 4 students at the school.
Headteacher Jane Cartwright said: “I am so pleased for our Year 11 students. Overall, they worked extremely hard and achieved the results they deserved.
“On behalf of the school and the Governing Body, I would like to pass on my congratulations and thanks to the whole school community including the staff and students’ families who have supported them throughout.
“Students have a great set of results of which they can be very proud.”
Noteworthy successes of year 11 include twins Rosie and Daniella Mallory who between them achieved ten A* grades eight A grades and three B’s.
Daniella said: “I am surprised and incredibly happy.”
Rosie said “I didn’t think I would get these grades but I’m really happy with my results”
Rosie now plans to study four A levels and pursue further education in law at a top university.
Jacob Sear was another delighted student having earned four A* and A grades along with two B’s.
Jacob said of the examinations: “I found them a mixed bag. Some I found reasonably easy but others were harder.
Jacob plans a career in archaeology and will be studying English Literature, History and Religious Studies at A Level.
Mrs Cartwright added: “These results are a credit to the students and I wish them well as they take up their places at sixth form, at college or in training.”
