The Peele Community College is “delighted” with the successes of its students in Year 11.

The students at the college achieved good results, with 55 per cent of students achieving five GCSEs at A* to C grade.

Results in maths and science were particularly strong at the college, with a pass rate of 71 per cent in maths and 62 per cent in science, which is an improvement of over 18 per cent from last year’s results.

Simon Gilman, headteacher at the college, said: “Students, parents, carers and staff at the college need to be congratulated for all of the dedication, teamwork and commitment that has gone into achieving these excellent results.

“We all wish them every success in their future college, training, apprenticeship and employment placements.”

Students who did very well with their results were Jade Walton, who achieved 14 passes, 11 of which were A* to A grade.

Molly Day Coombes also achieved 13 GCSE passes, with ten of those at A* - A grade.

Bethany Cook was very happy with her results, most of which were at C grade.

She said: “I’m really pleased with my results because this means that I can go and do the course I wanted to at Lynn college.

“I want to do health and social care and hope to go on to work with disabled children.”

Brad Wright was also happy with his results which mean that he will now be able to study motor vehicles at college.

Brad said: “I’ve really enjoyed my time at the Peele and am now looking forward to going to Wisbech college.

“I really want to work as a mechanic in a garage one day and, hopefully, this will get me there.”
