Glossop Advertiser - - Education Matters -

HIS year, stu­dents at All Saints Catholic Col­lege cel­e­brated the school’s best ever set of GCSE re­sults.Af­ter be­ing rated Good by Of­sted in July 2018, the school was de­lighted to see its pass rates in­crease in both maths and English.

Rep­re­sent­ing an im­prove­ment of al­most 30 per cent since last year, 2018 saw 75 per cent of stu­dents achieve a pass in English, with 64 per cent se­cur­ing a pass in maths.

In biology, 91 per cent of stu­dents achieved a pass at grade 4 or above, while chem­istry and physics stu­dents also per­formed well, with an over­all pass rate of 87 per cent at grade 4 or above.

Linda Em­mett, head­teacher at All Saints Catholic Col­lege, said: “These re­sults rep­re­sent the sig­nif­i­cant trans­for­ma­tion that has hap­pened in our school and the ab­so­lute ded­i­ca­tion of our stu­dents.

“I would per­son­ally like to thank our won­der­ful par­ents, staff and stu­dents for their com­mit­ment to en­sur­ing the con­tin­ued suc­cess of All Saints and their sup­port of our school mantra ‘Be In­spired. Be ex­cel­lent. Suc­ceed.’

“These re­sults rep­re­sent the next step in our jour­ney to make All Saints a truly out­stand­ing school for our lo­cal com­mu­nity.”

Out­stand­ing in­di­vid­ual suc­cesses were made by stu­dents Pa­trick Mur­ray and Ellen Cox, both of whom achieved an in­cred­i­ble 10 GCSEs at grade 9-7.

Pa­trick said: “I’m re­ally pleased with my re­sults and the re­sults of the school. They are tes­ta­ment to the hard work of all staff and stu­dents, es­pe­cially con­sid­er­ing our ‘good’ Of­sted judge­ment this sum­mer.”

Spe­cial con­grat­u­la­tions also went out to stu­dents Chiara Mor­reale and Jake Marklew, who achieved 2.5 and two more grades than pre­dicted re­spec­tively.
