GCSE results are 'gratifying' says Wisbech Grammar School head Chris Staley
Wisbech Grammar School sees results remain stable in this year's GCSEs.
Headmaster, Mr Chris Staley, said: “This has been a gratifying year for GCSEs at Wisbech Grammar School considering the curriculum changes, the move to the new 9-1 and more rigorous grading system.
"Once again, we are well ahead of the national pass rates overall and at the top end. I am incredibly pleased by their achievements, the dedication of the staff."
Over half of the year group achieved top grades in (A* to B or 9 to 6), which is the same as last year’s cohort. While 91 per cent achieved levels 9-4 in both English and maths.
Mr Staley added: "These results demonstrate that through inspiring teaching, tailoring learning to individual pupil needs, great progress can be made. Many pupils achieved results they would not have thought possible when we began our learning journey.”
Top performances came from: Hannah Lemmon (March): One 9, one A* and 8s across the Sciences and Maths. Molly Sears (Manea) : One 9, one A , and 8s and 7s across the Sciences. Harry Sayer (Wisbech): One A and 8s across Maths and the three Sciences. Eleanor Sloan (Wisbech): one 9, one A, and an 8 in English.
