Ellesmere College pupils celebrate an excellent set of GCSE results published today. Nearly a third of all grades are the top grades of A*/A and more than half of all grades in the A*/A/B range. There were some particularly notable performances that are worthy of specific mention for their A star and A grade achievement.
Olivia Gardner (Bromsgrove, Worcestershire) achieved 6A* and 4 A grades, Harry Pochin (Nantwich, Cheshire) gained 2A* and 8 A grades, Ben Palmer (Baschurch, Shropshire) secured 3A*, 4A and 2B grades and achieved an A grade in the advanced level of additional mathematics, Kate Spurdens (Ellesmere, Shropshire) achieved 3A*,4A and 3 B grades, Tomos Otter (Ellesmere, Shropshire) and Will Morgan (Oswestry, Shropshire) both achieved 2A*, 6A and 2 B grades, Georgina Freer-Carmichael (Worthenbury, Wrexham) secured 4A*, 2A and 4B grades and Mia Foster (Whitchurch, Shropshire) gained 1A*, 6A and 3B grades.
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 First Certificates in Spanish, French, Finance and Religious Studies with excellent results. Most notable was Charlie Digby (Ellesmere, Shropshire) in Year 10, having achieved his A* GCSE Mathematics last year he has progressed further to secure an A grade in AS Mathematics this year.
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. These results 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.'
