Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Runs And Runner Beans -

THE NORTH SCHOOL Stu­dents at The North School are “mov­ing in the right di­rec­tion” af­ter cel­e­brat­ing a good set of GCSE re­sults.

The school in Es­sella Road, Ash­ford, saw 46% of pupils achieve five A* to C grades in sub­jects in­clud­ing English and maths.

They were most suc­cess­ful in English with 66% of pupils achiev­ing A* to C.

Af­ter a damn­ing Of­sted re­port ear­lier this year, head of school Nicki Hodges said the re­sults demon­strate that the school is im­prov­ing.

She said: “We are de­lighted with the im­prove­ments that the school is mak­ing, and are confi- dent that this up­ward trend will con­tinue.”

One suc­cess­ful stu­dent, Chris Mclennan, was pleas­antly sur­prised af­ter he ner­vously opened his en­ve­lope re­veal­ing one A*, four As and a B.

Chris, 16, said: “I thought I would get a D in geog­ra­phy but I ac­tu­ally got an A so I re­ally wasn’t ex­pect­ing that.

“It’s a re­ally nice sur­prise and I’m so pleased. My fam­ily are ex­tremely happy too.”

He will be stay­ing on at the school’s sixth form to study A-lev­els in physics, maths and en­gi­neer­ing.

De­spite suf­fer­ing with ap­pen­dici­tis dur­ing the exam sea­son, Char­lie Heather, 16, achieved a B in graph­ics and Cs in ev­ery­thing else.

He said: “I am re­ally chuffed and happy that I man­aged to get the grades I wanted even though I was off quite a lot.

“I’m look­ing for­ward to stay­ing on and do­ing A-lev­els in maths, physics, en­gi­neer­ing and PE.”
