GCSE Results 2018
Pupils celebrated an excellent set of GCSE results this summer. A third of all grades were the top grade / levels of A*/A and 9/8/7. As the GCSE transition to reporting results in numbers in place of grades continues pupils have some subjects still reporting in grades whilst others are now reporting in numbers. At Ellesmere the international GCSEs continue to be successful with subjects such as English seeing over 50% of grades at 9 to 7, A*/A equivalent.
Congratulations go to all students on their results and there were some particularly notable performances that are worthy of specific mention for their grade A*/A, and level 9/8 achievements.
Rodrigo Anton Garcia (Madrid) swept the board with 4A* grades and 5 level 9's.
Sarala Chatterjee (Ellesmere) achieved 4A*, 2A grades and 2 level 9's, 1 8 and a B.
Charlie-Anne Williams (Ellesmere) gained 4A* 1A and 2 level 9's, 2 8's and a 5

Many pupils achieved a high number of top grades and are now looking forward to joining Ellesmere College Sixth Form in September where they will embark on either A Levels, the International Baccalaureate Diploma, or the BTEC Diploma in Sport.
Pupils in Years 9 and 10 have also completed some early GCSE's and First Certificates in Languages, Finance and Religious Studies, with excellent results.
Mr. Brendan Wignall, Headmaster, said 'It is a delight to see hard work pay off and these results are a credit to pupils, to their teachers and, of course, to their parents. I am always 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.'
