GCSE ResultsThere were some very happy pupils at the Royal Alexandra and Albert School today. Overall the school achieved higher results than last year with 61.4% of pupils achieving 5 GCSEs graded A*-C including English and Maths (last year the figure was 57%)
There were many individual successes. Marquiose Stewart achieved 3A*, 6As and a B grade and is delighted with his results “I’m pretty happy with these results, especially Physics as I had not expected to get an A*.”
Gregory Woollcombe-Gosson was also pleased with his Physics grade “I’m very happy with my results overall, they’re better than I expected. I’m particularly happy with my Physics and still so surprised I got an A*!” Gregory achieved 2A*s, 8 As and one B grade. He will be joining the Sixth Form to study English, History, Spanish and Psychology.
Victoria McWhirter was another pupil who could not have been more delighted with her results. She achieved 6 A*s, 4 As and one B grade. She said “I am ecstatic with my results! I suppose the hard work does pay off. I want to say thank you to all our teachers who helped us.”
Headmaster Paul Spencer Ellis said “These results are very pleasing, with most pupils exceeding their expected levels of progress. Many pupils have secured a place in our Sixth Form and we look forward to supporting them in their studies over the next two years.”
