After many weeks of waiting, 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 receive the majority of their GCSE exams on the new 9 – 1 scale with the rest of the GCSE exams continuing to be awarded A* – G grades.
Notable achievements included Kono Washio with three GCSEs at Grade 9 and five at Grade 8. Lucy Thompson achieved two GCSE scores of Grade 9, six at Grade 8 and an A grade. Mattia Salsi Achieved two Grade 9, one A* and four Grade 8 at GCSE level. Charlotte Ball achieved three grade 9, one A* and two grade 8. Rory Satterley-Hull achieved two grade 9, five grade 8 and an A grade, all at GCSE level.
Other top achievers included Harry Cross, Alice Wells, Luke Mawer and Sophie Reid.
Mr Peter Brown, Headteacher said, ‘We are extremely proud of the students’ achievements this year. This cohort 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 the majority of their subjects. I am also proud of our superb team of teaching and support staff at the school who have supported the students so well over the past three years. Together with strong parental support, the students have been very well prepared to meet the demands of an increasingly difficult examinations system.’
Mr Brown also added, ‘We are also very pleased that a high proportion of students will continue their studies into our excellent Sixth Form at Stanborough and will continue to perform at the highest level as demonstrated by our very good A-level results achieved last week. We also have a number of students who have been successful in their GCSE and BTEC qualifications and will now follow college or Level 2 Apprenticeship courses.’
