A-maz­ing re­sult for stel­lar King’s School stu­dents

Macclesfield Express - - GCSE RESULTS -

KING’S School GCSE stu­dents were see­ing stars with another stel­lar dis­play.

Of the 145 stu­dents in Year 11, 74 stu­dents achieved the top A* grade in one or more sub­jects.

Forty nine stu­dents achieved nine As and bet­ter, and nine stu­dents achieved nine A*s and bet­ter – with a quar­ter of the year group gain­ing at least five A*s.

Al­to­gether, 24 per cent of all grades were at A*; 57pc of all grades were at A*/A and 83pc of grades were A*-B.

Among some of the top in­di­vid­ual per­for­mances were two stu­dents who each achieved an in­cred­i­ble 10 A*s.

Sam Bryn­ing, 15, from Clum­ber Road, Poyn­ton, who is also a school team crick­eter and rugby player, hopes his clean sweep of 10A*s will ul­ti­mately lead to a ca­reer in the City.

North of Eng­land hockey star Eleanor Toms, 16, from Holly Road, Poyn­ton also aced all 10 GCSE with A*s.

Head­mas­ter Dr Si­mon Hyde says: “It is won­der­ful to see so many de­lighted stu­dents, whose hard work and de­ter­mi­na­tion has reaped such fab­u­lous re­wards.

“These in­cred­i­bly strong re­sults will see the over­whelm­ing ma­jor­ity of pupils progress to our Sixth Form to pur­sue their aca­demic dreams.”
