Lavington head praises excellent results at time of turmoil in education

In an ideal world everyone gets an A but what if you don't get the grades you want

GCSE results fell across the country, but Kingsbridge Community College bucked the trend with 86 per cent of students achieving A*-C grades.

St Albans High School for Girls celebrated record-breaking success this year, with more A* grades than ever and 92 per cent of girls achieving A*-A.

"Our congratulations goes to them all, for their commitment and hard work which has led students exceeding our expectations - 76 per cent of students sitting exams gained a standard pass in both English and mathematics, which compares favourably to previous years and upholds the high standards at Lavington School".

There were also noteworthy pass rates in the new English and Maths GCSEs, and every student who studied at the school in Year 11 has left school with a qualification.

Headteacher Nick Phillips said: "I am extremely proud of the results that our students have achieved in the face of uncertainty and increased rigour of the new exam system".

The following students were among many who have exceptional results: Tara Gaffney 9,9,9, 7 A*s and 1 A, Kendra-Jean Nwamadi - 9,9,8, 6 A*s, 2 As and 1 Distinction*, Simran Kaur - 9,9,7, 4 A*s, 3 As and 1 Distinction, Lauren Linton - 9,9,8, 8 A*s and 1 Distinction*, Esther Naybour, 9,9,8, 5 A*s and 2 As, Natalia Dul - 9,9,6, 8 A*s and 1 Distinction*, Charlotte Bogle - 9,8,7, 7 A*s and 1 A, Melissa Crawley - 9,7,7, 3 A*s, 5 As and 1 Distinction*, Alina Waqar - 9,8,6, 6 A*s, 2 As and 1 Distinction *, Sakinah Akorley - 9,8,6, 5 A*s and 2 As.

Our GCSE table is ranked on the proportion of pupils achieving A*+A grades (including 9, 8 and 7).

Isabelle achieved 15 A*-A equivalent grades including the most prestigious "Grand Slam" of Grade 9's in English Literature, English Language and Mathematics.

When asked if Microsoft were actively seeking to build a crossplay relationship with Sony , Greenberg replied: "Absolutely, yeah". Given that Microsoft is a little behind, enticing gamers with the tease of potential crossplay makes a lot of sense.

"I never expected to get these results", he said."I owe a lot to my teachers".

The newly opened Khalsa Academy, in Stoke Poges, saw an "outstanding" first set of results, with the Year 11 students being the first through the school.

Alleyn's headmaster Dr Gary Savage said: "Alleyn's boys and girls have once again excelled themselves in public examinations, and everyone at the school is hugely proud of what they have achieved".

More than a third of the grades obtained by students at the school this year were at the highest grades including several students who achieved three 9s in English and Maths.

Out of the 25 subjects studied half achieved 90 per cent or more A*-C grades, with notable achievements of 100 per cent in biology, Spanish and photography, and 94 per cent in PE, chemistry and physics.

Peter Haylock, Executive Principal, Fulham College Academy Trust added: "The boys and staff should be really proud of what they have achieved; these are a fantastic set of results".

Among other successful students, Devni Peramunugamage achieved Seven A*s and Two As plus two grade 6s. I am delighted for the girls and their families and also for their teachers whose excellent teaching and support for the girls has enabled them to achieve this outstanding success'.
