GCSE RESULTS: Cromwell on fine form with results

CROMWELL Community College in Chatteris is celebrating the second best set of GCSE results the college has ever achieved.

A total of 55 per cent of students achieved 5A* - C, including English and Maths, and 80 per cent achieved 5A* - C or equivalent overall.

For the third successive year every student has left Cromwell with at least one GCSE pass and 99.5 per cent achieved five GCSE passes.

The percentage of A* and A grades has risen by 6 per cent and five departments have recorded a 100 per cent A* - C pass rate.

Principal Jed Roberts said that set against a backdrop of more stringent marking, particularly in English and the challenges this cohort faced, these are a “good set of results by any standards”.

He added: “Our congratulations go to all of our students and a particular ‘well done’ goes to Keelan Adams, Kirsty Biggs, Sophie Bunting, Cherry Cooke, Molly Eastoll, Jessica Goodman, Shannon Herbert, Anna Skorobogatova and Katrina Youlton who all achieved at least 8 A* or A grades.

“Last, but very definitely not least, a special congratulations goes to Gabrielle Rabemananjara who achieved one distinction and A* grades in all of her other subjects.

“Well done to all concerned, thank you to all the parents who have supported us over the past five years and best wishes for the future.”
