More passes in core sub­jects

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Gcse Results -

Stu­dents at St John Fisher Catholic High School were toast­ing GCSE re­sults which re­flected a sig­nif­i­cant im­prove­ment on the pre­vi­ous year.

English and maths saw in­creases on 2015 of 7 per cent and five per cent re­spec­tively in the per­cent­age of stu­dents gain­ing a C or bet­ter.

In to­tal, around half the stu­dents achieved five or more passes at C or above. Among the high­est per­form­ing stu- dents this year were I ga Zlo­tucha with five A*s, five As and two Bs and Finley Allen with two A*s, eight As and one B.

There was also praise from the school for Man­tas Paske­vi­cius who achieved 100 per­cent in his sports stud­ies GCSE exam, a rare feat in a writ­ten ex­am­i­na­tion.

Of the stu­dents that stud­ied the five core sub­jects which make up the English Bac­calau­re­ate, 53 per cent achieved a Cor­bett erin eve- ry sub­ject.

Head­teacher Sean Hayes said: “We are de­lighted with this year’s re­sults which re­flect the hard work and com­mit­ment of both stu­dents and staff. Stu­dents rose to the chal­lenge of dif­fer­ent ex­pec­ta­tions and new cour­ses with many mak­ing ex­cep­tional progress dur­ing their time with us. I would like to con­grat­u­late all of our stu­dents on their re­sults and on their be­half thank their teach­ers.”
