BUCKS IS BRILLIANT
(and we’ve got the proof right here)
HOT on the tails of the outstanding A level results achieved by pupils at Bucks schools, comes an equally impressive set of GCSE results.
Pupils throughout South Bucks and Chiltern districts have been celebrating as their examination results showed they were top of the class.
At Dr Challoner’s Grammar School in Amersham and at St Mary’s School in Gerrards Cross, every single student achieved at least five A* to C grade GCSEs that included maths and English. And a 100% success rate has got to be something worth shouting from the rooftops.
Despite a slight downturn in results nationally, schools in Bucks had no such issues with some, like Amersham School, Dr Challoner’s High School, Chiltern Hills Academy, Pipers Corner School in Great Kingshill and St Clement Danes School improving on some, if not all, of the result categories.
In fact all schools in the area expressed their delight at this year’s GCSE results – a testament to the hard work of teachers, students and parents.
And some youngsters managed exceptional GCSE results, while concentrating on other things as well.
Tom Scott, a pupil at Beaconsfield School, was thrilled with his exam results, which he received just months after signing a contract to play for AFC Wimbledon.
And students of all ages were high achievers at Amersham & Wycombe College with 54-year-old Helen McCorkindale achieving her ambition of a GCSE in maths, which she did in style, achieving an A grade.
Those students choosing to continue their education now have excellent sixth forms and colleges to choose from, as shown by the A level results two weeks ago when many schools achieved record-breaking results.
