STRATFORD Girls’ Grammar School are celebrating record breaking round of GCSE results.
Students achieved 84 per cent A* to A results across all their GCSEs including the reformed subjects.
The students achieved 83 per cent 9 to 7 grades (or low to high As ) in the reformed maths and English exams, and a new school record of 85 per cent A* to A grades in the remaining GCSEs, with half of those graded A*.
And with one in five of its students achieving a grade 9, the school has exceeded national expectations of the highest grade being achieved in just 2 per cent of English papers and 3 per cent in maths.
Equally praised were 31 per cent of students who achieved grade 8 (or a middle A).
Among those who achieved ‘phenomenal’ results were – Tolulope Atilola, Leah Bhandal and Inaam Shammoon who attained three 9 grades and eight A*s across their eleven GCSEs.
HeadteacherJacqui Cornell said: “These results are stunning! This is the first year group to have experienced the new, more demanding English and Maths GCSEs.
“As part of our rolling expansion in pupil numbers over recent years, this year’s results belong to the largest year group entered for GCSEs this far, so we are delighted to see the new school record.
” It has been an unsettling experience but these results show the calibre of our students and that they have risen to the challenge laid down by the Government.
“Our Year 11 have maintained the Stratford Girls’ tradition of excellent results in GCSEs. The students’ success says a lot about their tenacity and resilience, as well as their determination to succeed. And characteristics that we see as they come up through the school will serve them well as they move into the sixth form. “It proves that for bright girls in Stratford and the wider Warwickshire area, Stratford Girls’ Grammar School remains a prime destination of choice. Well done to all our students and good luck as they begin their A-levels in Shottery Sixth Form!”
