Harriet Holmes achieved eight grade 8 and 9s, she said:
“I am feeling very, very happy and surprised! I managed to get an 8 in Maths which I am so pleased with and a 9 in Art. I am looking forward to staying to study Geography, Physics and Art at A Level. It has been a really hard few years getting here but I did the best I could and it has paid off.”
Eshan Uttarwar was also pleased with his results, achieving seven grade 8s, he said:
“It is such a relief and I am just so happy with my results. I was quite nervous about getting them, but I have done well and I am pleased with what I have achieved, especially in Sciences and Maths. I am going to stay for A Levels and do Maths, Chemistry and Biology.”
Headmaster, Mark Wallace commented:
“I am really pleased for our pupils who have achieved some remarkable grades. Their results are down to their hard work, resilience and commitment to their studies. There are so many of our pupils (I would mention them all if I had the space!) who have done remarkably well, facing many challenges and difficulties along their two-year GCSE journey. What they have achieved and
overcome has been wonderful to see. Our pupils are very lucky to have been well supported by an extremely dedicated staff, who have given time and support whenever it is needed, be it during lunch times or after school.
“I am certain our pupils will continue to excel as role models as they move into Sixth Form and take full advantage of the outstanding opportunities available to them at the school both inside and
outside the classroom.”
