School especially pleased with excellence in English
TOWERS SCHOOL At Towers School and Sixth Form Centre several pupils gained A* and A grades in all subjects and 49% achieved C or above in English and maths.
There was a double celebration at the Groves household in Singleton as twins Amber and Jade got top marks.
Amber gained A*s in sociology and RE and will study those subjects and others at Highworth Grammar School from September while Jade, who got an A* in art and A for English and textiles, is off to the University for the Creative Arts.
It will be the first time the girls have been educated separately. Amber said: “It will be weird.” Reece Buckle, also from Singleton, achieved five A* and five A grades and is off to Highworth with the intention of studying medicine or biomedical science at university.
He said: “I wasn’t expecting these grades so it was a surprise. I sat down and worked out what I’d got before celebrating.”
Friends Maddy Pink from Ashford and Chloe Dawson of Single- ton were celebrating after achieving multiple A grades.
Maddy, who also got an A* in art, said: “I was really scared opening my results but I’m really happy. With these grades I’ve got into Highworth but I think I want to stay at Towers.”
Head teacher Richard Bill- ings said: “We were particularly delighted with our English results as two thirds of the year were successful in attaining a C or above. The commitment, focus and hard work of staff and students throughout the year has paid off. We are very proud of their accomplishments.”
