Another great year for GCSE ResultsThere was a buzz of excitement at the Royal Alexandra and Albert School as pupils came in to collect their GCSE results. One of the first to arrive was Natasha Patel and her early start was rewarded when she found she had achieved 4A*s, 5As and a B. She said that waiting for her results had been “the worst thing in the world”.
Jason West had had a sleepless night but was thrilled with his results which mean he can stay on in the Sixth Form at the Royal Alexandra and Albert School and study his first choice of subjects.
Kayan Patel, who wants to study Economics at university, has made good progress towards his goal with the 7A*s, 2As and B he achieved at GCSE. He said “I was quite confident until this morning then the nerves kicked in.”
Tara Hunt, who has already secured a place at the Brit School, was delighted with the 11 GCSEs she achieved with six at grade A or A*.
Headmaster Paul Spencer Ellis said “This is the second year that GCSEs have been made harder with English last year and English, Maths and Science this year, so I am particularly pleased that this year group has achieved the results we were predicting. Amongst an excellent set of results it is noteworthy that in our unique subjects Horse Care and Countryside and Environment all candidates got a Grade B or better.”
Pupils did well at the highest grades with the proportion of A* and A grades being above the national average. Languages had a successful year with 100% pass rate at grade A*-C for both French and German.
