English success at Marshland High School
Youngsters at a Fenland secondary school are celebrating early GCSE successes.
Year 11 pupils at Marshland High School have received the results of their English Language GCSE. Pupils sat the exam in January and 79 per cent have attained an A*-C grade, which is well above the national average of 65 per cent. While 90 per cent of students made three levels of progress from their Key Stage 2 English results and a 46 per cent made four levels of progress from that result.
Headteacher Elizabeth Dormor is delighted with these results.
She said: “These figures beat even last year’s fabulous English results in terms of the amount of progress these students have made since being at Marshland.
“Congratulations to all the pupils and thanks to all the staff involved for all their hard work too. We hope this success will help students to realise how just much they can achieve and so motivate them to do really well with their summer GCSEs too.” PICTURE: SUPPLIED
