BUCKS IS BRIL­LIANT

(and we’ve got the proof right here)

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - FRONT PAGE -

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.
