Praise as hard work pays off

Macclesfield Express - - GCSE RESULTS -

FAL­LI­B­ROOME Academy is cel­e­brat­ing af­ter more than three quar­ters of its stu­dents achieved the na­tional bench­mark.

An im­pres­sive 76 per cent of stu­dents walked away with five A*-Cs in­clud­ing English and maths, with 37pc of en­tries be­ing graded at A* or A.

In ad­di­tion, al­most 40pc of stu­dents achieved the English Bac­calau­re­ate qual­i­fi­ca­tion – a record at the school.

Top of the class were Zarin Sale­hin, Me­gan Smith and Amy Bow­ers who all achieved the re­mark­able feat of 11A* grades.

Prin­ci­pal Peter Ru­bery praised his stu­dents and their teach­ers for their hard work and ser­vice to the school.

He said: “Ev­ery stu­dent de­serves praise for their hard work and com­mit­ment. This re­mark­able co­hort made a tremen­dous con­tri­bu­tion to school life and was a plea­sure to teach.

“In ad­di­tion to pro­duc­ing stun­ning aca­demic re­sults they have brought credit to the Academy by their sport­ing, artis­tic and com­mu­nity achieve­ments.

“For in­stance many of the girls who won the English Schools’ Net­ball Cham­pi­onships have pro­duced hat­fuls of A*s and As.

“Also, Char­lie Jones and An­gus Cur­rie, who were se­lected for the Na­tional Youth Brass Band of Great Bri­tain, were among our high­est achiev­ers with 10 or more A*/A grades.

“These re­sults, along­side our im­pres­sive A-level re­turns will con­firm the school’s rep­u­ta­tion as one of the most suc­cess­ful com­pre­hen­sives in the coun­try.”
