GCSE results success for Collegiate School

Pupils, staff and parents are celebrating following an excellent set of results achieved by Collegiate Year 11s, despite the news headlines predicting falling percentages of top grades.

The following results are testament to the hard work of students and the support of their teachers and parents:

  • 58% of grades at 7 to 9 (equivalent of A/A*)
  • 17% of grades were 9s
  • 20% of students achieved all grades at 7 or above

Collegiate Head, Jeremy McCullough, said: “While it is important to remember that our students always learn far more than simply what is required to pass exams, it is certainly very rewarding to see them achieve such good examination results.

“We know that these brilliant young people have also excelled in sport, music, drama and other areas too. In addition, their holistic education will have helped them develop a great many other personal qualities, such as resilience and determination, that will stand them in good stead for the future.”

One Collegiate student who has excelled in his GCSEs is Zachary H, who achieved a full sweep of nine Grade 9s. On opening his results at school this morning, Zachary said: “I never dreamt I’d get this set of results and I am speechless. One subject in particular was English, but I am so thankful for all the help and support I have received to achieve this. This is solid proof that with determination, anything is possible.” Zachary will return to Collegiate in September to start his A-level studies in Maths, Further Maths, Music and Drama and his ambition is to head to university to study Maths in the future.

Jeremy McCullough congratulates Zachary

Jeremy McCullough continued: “Congratulations to Zachary and all the Year 11s for achieving their best. We look forward to welcoming the majority of students back in September as they begin their sixth form journey with us, and we are excited to be joined by a strong cohort of candidates from other schools.”
