It’s a record breaker as 83pc achieve pass mark

Macclesfield Express - - GCSE RESULTS -

TYTHER­ING­TON School is cel­e­brat­ing record GCSE re­sults.

A first look at re­sults re­veals that 83 per­cent of Year 11 stu­dents achieved a stan­dard pass - grade four and above - in English and maths.

The school also saw 79pc of stu­dents achieved five GCSEs in­clud­ing English and maths at the stan­dard level (C+/4+).

Al­most 90pc of stu­dents achieved 4+ in English and 86pc in Maths.

A third of all grades were ei­ther A/A* or 7-9 in English. The progress and at­tain­ment of stu­dents at GCSE is yet again very strong.

Manny Botwe, head­teacher said: “These re­sults are un­prece­dented and our at­tain­ment is amongst the very best in the North West. The progress of stu­dents re­mains very strong and we ex­pect even bet­ter re­sults next year. We be­lieve that these re­sults vin­di­cate our pol­icy of not forc­ing stu­dents to take the Ebacc path­way at GCSE. We be­lieve that stu­dents should pur­sue an ap­pro­pri­ate path­way of study at GCSE which they are pas­sion­ate about and en­ables them to ful­fil their po­ten­tial.

“I am so proud of the achieve­ments of all our stu­dents. These re­sults are down to the hard work of stu­dents and staff as well as fan­tas­tic sup­port from par­ents. We con­tin­ued our pol­icy of no study leave which en­sured that stu­dents were given greater sup­port than ever be­fore. There are no se­crets to our suc­cess and we don’t be­lieve in gim­micks. It is down to hard work, first class pas­toral care and sheer en­thu­si­asm for learn­ing. I would like to take this op­por­tu­nity to con­grat­u­late all our young­sters across Mac­cles­field on their suc­cesses and thank them for mak­ing this the best job in the world.”

There were also some in­di­vid­ual suc­cess sto­ries.

Iqra Bisiketi joined the school from Malawi only able to speak the Chichewan di­alect.

Through hard work he achieved 8 GCSEs, per­form­ing well above ex­pec­ta­tions.
