Princethorpe College Celebrates Its Best Ever GCSE Results
Princethorpe College is celebrating its best ever GCSE results. From a cohort of 127 pupils almost half (48%) of all entries were graded the coveted 9, 8 or 7 grades and 36 of its Year 11 pupils (28%) achieved eight or more 9, 8 or 7 grades.
There were many exceptional personal achievements, with stand-out performances from Grace McGrory, James Gallagher, Lauren Mason, Alex Rejali and Prajeet Prabakaran, who all achieved an outstanding eleven or more grade 9s.
Princethorpe pupils performed well in all the core subjects, but the College is again delighted with its English results - this year 62% of pupils achieved 9, 8 or 7 grades - and the standard of Art was again commended by the examination board moderators, with 72% being graded 9 or 8.
Overall 96% of the grades achieved were A* - C or 9 - 4 grades.
Headmaster, Ed Hester said, “I would like to congratulate all of our Year 11 pupils. I am delighted with the excellent results they have achieved across the board; it is a privilege to be amongst so many happy pupils this morning and marvellous to be able to celebrate such success. We are of course delighted with the exceptionally high number of top grades, but we are proud of all our pupils who have worked hard and done their very best. Whilst their results are important, this year group have also demonstrated many fine qualities worth celebrating, such as kindness, respect, determination and friendship.”
He continued, “All credit goes to our pupils and staff for their commitment and hard work. The College goes from strength to strength and we look forward to welcoming the vast majority of this cohort back into our successful Sixth Form for the next stage of their education.”
