The headteacher of Willingdon has spoken of his pride at a set of GCSE results which will see the school placed in the top 25 percent nationally for the tenth year running.
An impressive 73 percent of students achieved five or more A*-C grades, including English and maths - the school’s second best set of results ever.
Headteacher Ian Jungius said: “Congratulations to all the students who have performed so well, including 41 percent of them who have achieved the English Baccalaureate, a rise of over 20 percent. 34 percent of all grades were at A*/A.
“This leaves students very well placed to move on successfully to further education and then on to top universities.
“22 students achieved 10 or more A* or A grades, results which will place them amongst the highest achieving students in the country with the highest achievers being: Ben Preston with nine A*, one A and two B grades, Charlotte Weyland with eight A* and three A grades, Jasmine Walsh with seven A* and four A grades, Beth Ronnie with six A* and six A grades.
“However, there were notable achievements across the full range of abilities including students with SEN who excelled across a full range of subjects.”
