Students and staff are celebrating an excellent set of GCSE results at Wollaston School. The headline measure of students achieving a Grade 4 or above in both English and Maths has increased to above 70% for the first time in the school’s recent history.

Students have achieved strong results throughout the curriculum, with the average grade achieved at a Grade 5 (defined by Ofqual and the Department for education as a “strong pass”).

Headteacher, Mr James Birkett, commented “I congratulate all of our GCSE students who are collecting results today. Our students and staff have worked incredibly hard together throughout the year, successfully navigating the newly reformed GCSE assessment system. Our students should take great pride in all that they have achieved and we look forward to the vast majority of our students returning in September to our successful Sixth Form to begin their A Level and BTEC studies”.
