The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Gcse Results -

A third of pupils at The Peter­bor­ough School achieved eight or more A* or A grades in their GCSEex­am­i­na­tions, with 23 per cent of all can­di­dates achiev­ing this in 10 or more sub­jects.

In to­tal, 51 per cent of all the grades were at A* or A, and 77 per cent were at A*, A or B.

Thisyear’s co­hortof­com­puter sci­ence stu­dents will be par­tic­u­larly pleased, with 88 per cent of them get­ting A*s and 92 per cent of the grades in GCSE bi­ol­ogy, chem­istry and physics at A* or A.

H e a d m a s t e r Ad r i a n Mead­ows said: “Many con­grat­u­la­tions to all the stu­dents on these ex­cel­lent re­sults. I am very pleased for the large number who haveachieved­thetop­grades across their sub­jects and wish all the stu­dents well as they move on to the next stage of their ed­u­ca­tion.” Pupils at Ken Stimp­son Com­mu­nity School achiev­ing five or more A* to C passes in­clud­ing English and maths has risen by over 10 per­cent­age points to 51 per cent.

The English re­sults also saw pupils make far greater progress than ex­pected against na­tional bench­marks.

So­phie Jackson achieved four A* s, five As and one B, while Nabin Burlakoti achieved five A*s, one A, two Bs and one C.

Nabin only j oined the school in June last year af­ter mov­ing from Nepal.

Richard Lord, out­go­ing prin­ci­pal, said: “My thanks go to the staff for giv­ing so freely of their time and to the stu­dents for their fan­tas­tic ef­forts.

“The sup­port of par­ents and car­ers along the way has also been vi­tal be­cause we know that this makes a truly positive im­pact.”
