Another generation of Anglo students opened their envelopes at school today to discover what they had achieved at GCSE. Staff were on hand to congratulate them and share their delight as well as support those who needed it.
Jody Gee, co-headteacher said “There are many wonderful individual stories in this set of results. We are really proud of their achievements and look forward to working with them for another two years in our Sixth Form. For those who will tread pastures new, we wish them every success but we are on hand to advise any of our students about their next steps”
A quarter of the grades awarded to the students were 7,8 or 9 which are the highest available. Nationally the figure is 21%. The progress made by all students was positive. Co-headteacher , David Barrs explained “This means our students met or exceeded the very challenging targets the school set which is something we are particularly proud of given that all students follow a very broad curriculum including languages, humanities, Citizenship and the arts – an average of 10 GCSEs per student with a pass rate of 83%”. The national average pass rate is currently 67%
Deputy Headteacher, Mike Seager, added, “With these more difficult GCSEs it is a credit to our students and staff that we continue to perform well at this level”
A particular highlight was languages in terms of the numbers entered and the grades achieved, maintaining the school’s position as a centre of excellence.
Whilst the results are yet to be verified, the indications are very encouraging.
