After a long wait following the end of the exams in June, Stanborough students were finally able to collect their GCSE and BTEC exam results on Thursday morning. The school was extremely pleased with the results achieved by the students who were the first cohort to take the new Maths and English GCSE exams measures on a 9 – 1 scale with the rest of the GCSE exams continuing to be awarded A* – G grades.
Notable achievements included Hannah Imafidon who achieved the highest grade possible in all of her subjects gaining a magnificent 8 A* and 3 Grade 9. Isaac Cheng achieved 7 A*, 1 A and Grades 8 and 9. Chim Wachuku achieved 5 A*, 2 A, 1 B and a Grade 9 and two Grade 8. Louise Knight achieved 4 A*, 4 A and two Grade 9 and a Grade 8. Hamzah Hussain achieved 4 A*, 3 A, 1 B and Grades 7, 8 and 9. Joshua Wardle achieved 4 A*, 3 A and a Grade 9 and two Grade 8.
Other top achievers included Louise Avery, Alex Baxter, Tawsif Chowdhury, Jasmine Gaydon, Becci Harrison and William Stringer.
Mr Peter Brown, Headteacher said, ‘This group of students has not only had to work extremely hard for all their GCSE and BTEC qualifications, but they have also had the added uncertainty of being the first cohort to take the new style GCSE exams in Maths and English. We are very proud of their efforts and of their achievements. I am also proud of our excellent team of teaching and support staff at the school who have supported the students so well over the past three years. Together with parental support, the students have been very well prepared to meet the demands of an increasingly challenging examinations system.
