Ellesmere College pupils celebrate an excellent set of GCSE results published today. Over a third of all grades are the top grades of A*/A, more than 63% of grades were either A*/A or B and 90% of grades A*- C. There were some particularly notable performances that are worthy of specific mention for their A* and A grade achievement:
Charlotte Dixon (Newport) achieved 7A* and 3 A grades, Will Ainge (Bangor on Dee) gained 5A* and 4 A grades and is one of our talented musicians, Chantelle Ridgeway (Derbyshire) was successful in gaining 5A* and 4 A grades, James Bateman (Wrexham) secured 4A* and 5 A grades with an A in Additional Mathematics, Sebastian McCarthy (Ellesmere) gained 4A* and 4 A grades, Francesca Hughes (Oswestry) achieved 3 A* and 5 A grades and both Jo Jameson (Tattenhall) and Perri Rowe (Northwich) gained 2A* and 7 A grades.
A number of pupils found the time to add to their GCSE results with A grades at AS in such wide ranging subjects as Religious Studies, Japanese and Russian.
Many pupils achieved a high number of top grades and are now looking forward to joining Ellesmere College Sixth Form where they will embark on either A levels or the International Baccalaureate in September.
Pupils in Years 9 and 10 have also completed some early GCSE's and certificates in Spanish, French and Religious Studies with excellent results.
Mr Brendan Wignall, Headmaster, said 'On completing their GCSEs today it is clear that our pupils have set down an excellent foundation on which to build their Sixth Form career. The results today are a credit to them, to their teachers and, of course, to their parents.
I am impressed with how our pupils manage to combine achieving an excellent academic record along with maintaining their valued contribution to the musical, dramatic and sporting life of the College. It is always a delight to receive such a well deserved, good set of results and I congratulate them.'
