School proud at ‘fan­tas­tic’ day

Macclesfield Express - - GCSE RESULTS -

THE head­teacher of Poyn­ton High School has praised stu­dents for their ‘truly fan­tas­tic’ GCSE re­sults.

The school cel­e­brated 71 per cent of stu­dents gain­ing the na­tional bench­mark of five A*-C grades in­clud­ing math­e­mat­ics and English.

Al­most 10pc of grades were A*.

In nine sub­jects at least 90pc of stu­dents got A*-C grades.

Ninety five per cent got A*-C in bi­ol­ogy and chem­istry, 85pc A*-C in English literature, 85pc A*-C in history, 82pc A*-C in ge­og­ra­phy, 9pc A*-C in

all physics, and 80pc A*-C in French, Ger­man and Span­ish.

Head­teacher David Waugh, said: “It is won­der­ful to see such amaz­ing re­sults and in­di­vid­ual suc­cess sto­ries.

“With ap­proach­ing 10pc of all our GCSE ex­am­i­na­tions be­ing graded at the very pres­ti­gious A* grade and ap­prox­i­mately 40pc of stu­dents achiev­ing the gold stan­dard English Bac­calau­re­ate, we are once again cel­e­brat­ing the out­stand­ing achieve­ment by our stu­dents.

“All of our staff and gover­nors are so very proud of each and ev­ery stu­dent – they have done them­selves, and their fam­i­lies, proud.”

There were 33 stu­dents who gained at least eight As and A*s.

Top of the class was Joseph Parker who gained an A* in all 11 of his GCSEs, closely fol­lowed by Is­abel Mawhood who gained 10 A*s, a grade A and a dou­ble starred dis­tinc­tion for com­put­ing/ ICT.

Other no­table achiev­ers were Glo­ria Chan, who gained 8A*, 2A and Thomas Holmes went one bet­ter with 8A*, 3A grades.

Sarah Brighton, Thomas Holmes, Alex Kirkham, Jayme Leigh, Is­abel Mawhood and Joseph Parker all gained at least 11 GCSEs graded at A or A*, with Ly­dia Atha, Glo­ria Chan, Alis­tair Greenwood, Katie Grims­ditch, Calum Ken­dal-Sadiq, Olivia Turner, Phillip Wadley and An­to­nia White gain­ing at least 10 GCSEs graded A or A*.

A spe­cial men­tion goes to Ben Johns who achieved 4A* and 3As de­spite his health bat­tle with Crohns Dis­ease, a long-term con­di­tion that causes in­flam­ma­tion of the lin­ing of the di­ges­tive sys­tem.
