Pupils celebrate their GCSE results at
The Joseph Whitaker School
It is pleasing to announce that The Joseph Whitaker School’s overall results are higher than 2017 outcomes in terms of attainment and we await national statistics for the key progress headline measure.
This summer has seen twenty new GCSE subjects using Grades 1-9 with the common theme of significantly reduced coursework and increased examinations. In itself this means the subjects are far more challenging than previously. The students and staff have worked incredibly hard to meet the very demanding expectations of the new specifications. This has been against a background of limited national guidance, resources and grade boundaries.
There were some outstanding individual results which are detailed below.
However, one exceptional performance was from Paige Daniels who has achieved Grade 9 or A* in every single subject. An amazing set of results which we understand has only been achieved by a very small percentage of students nationally.
|Paige Daniels||8 x Grade 9||1 x A*|
|Ali Aktar||6 x Grade 9||2 x Grade 7|
|Lucy Cooke||3 x Grade 9||4 x Grade 8||1 x Grade 7||1 x Grade A|
|William Hammond||2 x Grade 9||5 x Grade 8||1 x Grade 7|
|Molly Rooth Corder||2 x Grade 9||4 x Grade 8||2 x Grade 7||1 x Grade A|
|Isabelle Flint||1 x Grade 9||4 x Grade 8||3 x Grade 7||1 x Grade A|
|Holly Shepphard||1 x Grade 9||5 x Grade 8||2 x Grade 7|
|Nathan Lewis||3 x Grade 9||2 x Grade 8||2 x Grade 7|
|Aimee Whitworth||4 x Grade 8||3 x Grade 7||1 x Grade A|
A fantastic set of GCSE results for an amazing cohort of students. It is pleasing to note that the majority of our students will return to us in the sixth form this September. I would like to pass on my personal congratulations and best wishes for the future to all our students.
The school has achieved very strong results at both GCSE and at A level again this year and this is testament to the commitment of our students and staff, together with the support of parents and carers in seeking the best possible outcomes.
