De­light as pupils achieve po­ten­tial

Macclesfield Express - - GCSE RESULTS -

STU­DENTS at All Hal­lows have again per­formed well in a wide range of GCSE sub­jects.

The 203 stu­dents notched up an over­all pass rate of 76 per cent for five or more A*-C passes, with nearly 70pc of stu­dents gain­ing five or more A*-C in­clud­ing both English and maths.

Tony Billings, prin­ci­pal at All Hal­lows, said: “We are de­lighted with our stu­dents’ re­sults, which are well above the na­tion­ally ex­pected rates of progress in English and math­e­mat­ics.

“We are also de­lighted with re­sults across the board, which demon­strate how the col­lege is pro­vid­ing a well-rounded ed­u­ca­tion which helps all stu­dents reach their po­ten­tial.”

The high­est per­form­ing male stu­dent was James Mus­grave with 12 A*s and the high­est per­form­ing fe­male stu­dent was Re­becca Lynch with 10 A*s and two As.

James said : “I am on top of the world with my re­sults. I would like to say a big thank you to my teach­ers for all their sup­port. I’m look­ing for­ward to study­ing English, history, phi­los­o­phy and maths in our Sixth Form.”

And de­spite nurs­ing a bro­ken col­lar bone prior to the ex­ams, Madeleine O’Con­nor did fan­tas­ti­cally well, gain­ing 7A*s and 4As.

She said: “I am de­lighted with my re­sults as I was de­ter­mined that noth­ing would stop me from get­ting my tar­get grades.

“I’m re­ally look­ing for­ward to con­tin­u­ing my stud­ies. The teach­ers at All Hal­lows are sec­ond to none and I love the col­lege.”

Spe­cial con­grat­u­la­tions are also due to the high fliers who gained seven or more A*-A passes: Ai­dan Briggs, Roisin Conry, Darcy Fowler, Phoebe Geary, Char­lotte Haigh, Nathan Haigh, Thomas Ham­man, Jemima Hill, Ai­dan Hughes, Meghan Ive­son, Alexan­der Jones, Ja­cob Kal­nins, Re­becca Lynch, Louisa Mack­in­tosh, Ed­die Mee­han, James Mus­grave, Emma Nay, Lily Nye, Madeleine O’Con­nor, Ni­amh O’Sul­li­van, So­phie Parry, Emily Raf­ferty, Ja­cob Smith, Mil­lie Stanier, Jamie Web­ster.

A fur­ther 45pc of stu­dents achieved five or more A*-B grades.

As a spe­cial­ist busi­ness en­ter­prise and lan­guage col­lege, All Hal­lows is also proud of its re­sults in lan­guages, with 75 per cent of stu­dents tak­ing at least one GCSE in ei­ther French, Ger­man, Span­ish, Latin or Man­darin.

This year marks the first set of re­sults in GCSE Chi­nese (Man­darin), with a pass rate of 87pc at A*-C and 22pc achiev­ing A* or A.

Stu­dents for which English is an ad­di­tional lan­guage also achieved out­stand­ing re­sults, with 11 GCSEs for Ge­orge Joseph and Alek­san­dra Wal­icka, and 10 GCSEs achieved by both Michal Sienco and Ju­lia Rosin­ska.

Alek­san­dra said: “I am re­ally pleased with my re­sults, par­tic­u­larly my art and English as I plan to study art at col­lege.

“I came to Eng­land in 2007, not able to speak any English, so to get a good grade at GCSE in both lan­guage and literature is won­der­ful.

“Thank you to all the teach­ers who gave me so much sup­port.”
