There were whoops of delight at Wollaston School on 25 August as students arrived at school to receive their GCSE results. Results have risen for the second year in succession and outcomes were pleasing in a wide range of subjects. 65% of all students attained 5 A*-C grades, including maths and English. The new progress measures that the government have introduced this year indicate that 75% of maths students matched or exceeded their expected progress and 86% of English students matched or exceeded their expected progress.
Headteacher, Joe Cowell, said that he was delighted that so many students have seen their hard work and commitment rewarded by really pleasing results and that these outcomes are the culmination of a positive, ‘Never say die’ approach by students, their teachers and their parents.
