Salesian School is celebrating another strong year of results with their GCSE students. Following hot on the heels of last week's excellent A Level results, 85% of students earned the benchmark five A*-C grades (including English and Maths), and 37% of exams taken scored the highest A and A* grades.
The overall 'five A*-C' rate of 93% represents continuing high performance, especially for a non-selective, comprehensive school. Particular congratulations go to Jessica De Suza with an outstanding eleven A* grades, Nadia Tognelli who earned nine A* and three A grades, and Alexis Everall who got eight A*s and three As. A total of 52 students – 23% of those sitting GCSEs – earned eight or more A/A* grades, including all of the students pictured, above. (You can find more pictures from results day in our Celebrating section.)
Headteacher James Kibble said: "We're delighted and proud to celebrate another successful year of progress and attainment at Salesian. Teachers and students have worked incredibly hard as always – and parents will want to celebrate their supportive role in their children's success as well. Their results are tremendous and we can't wait for many of our GCSE students to join us again in September as their A Level studies begin."
Katie Ashby, Hannah Crowe, Kirsty Fitzpatrick, Montana Robinson-Sueiro, Ellen Speed and Imogen Turner all achieved 10 or more As and A*s, and a further 24 students achieved eight or more A or A* grades (52 in total).
