Withington celebrates outstanding GCSE results

Posted August 26, 2017

Withington's Headmistress, Mrs Sarah Haslam, said, 'These are wonderful results which are richly deserved by all of our Year 11 pupils - they have worked hard, showing great commitment to their studies, and also played a full part in the wider life of the school - they have so much to look forward to in the Sixth Form and beyond.

Jonathan Gillespie, headmaster of St Albans School, commented: "I am delighted with this year's excellent GCSE results and congratulate our pupils on their individual successes".

Paula Ledger the headteacher said: "I am very proud of this year's Year 11 students and the excellent results they have achieved - the second best in the history of the school".

This outstanding set of results is the highest ever achieved by a Fulham Cross Girls' School student and was closely followed by students including Lyeba Ahmed (six A*s, 1 A and three grade 8s), Ithar Hajar Derdour (six A*s, two As, two grade 8s and one grade 7) and Shan Hama, pictured below, who achieved three grade 9s in English and maths, three A*s, 4 As and 1 B.

With 72 per cent of students achieving the new headline figure of English and Maths combined standard passes or more, and retaining its high EBacc pass rate at 40 per cent, the school is really over the moon, especially in light of the new GSCE standards introduced this year.

Looking at the results, the extra structured time put in by students and their teachers has clearly paid off and will be the model of choice for years to come.

Nathan Gorgulu, Simon Grundy, Joe Hensman, Haneef Khan, James Lofts, Adam Pringle, Alex Towle, Stuart Wallace and Freddie Wilkinson all hit the highest mark in the newly reformed examinations.
