There were celebrations at Sibford School today following the release of GCSE results.
The school once again recorded some outstanding results in science subjects, with 100% of pupils taking Biology and Physics gaining A*-C grades, and 94% of those taking Chemistry achieving A* – C.
Five students ~ William Edmonds, Alexander George, James McCullough, Isaac Roberts and Gary Rooney ~ achieved A*s and/or As in all three science subjects.
The school also saw excellent results in the core subject of Mathematics, with 90% of students achieving A* to C grades.
In all top A* and A grades were spread across a total of 19 different subjects ~ English Language, Mathematics, Statistics, Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Additional Science, Religious Education, Art & Design, Business Studies, Design & Technology, Food & Nutrition, Geography, History, Information & Communication Technology, Music, French, Spanish and Chinese.
Two students achieved A*s in over 50% of their subjects.
Isaac Roberts, who gained an A* GCSE Maths Grade when he was just 13, added to his early success with a further five A*s (in English, Biology, Physics, Spanish and Statistics), three As (in Biology, Geography and Music) and two Bs (in English Literature and Religious Education).
William Edmonds achieved six A*s (in English, Maths, Chemistry, Physics, Statistics and Religious Education), four As (in Biology, French, History and Information & Communication Technology) and one B (in English Literature).
Overall, 50 Year 11 pupils took GCSEs with 78% achieving five or more A* to C grades.
Toby Spence, who takes over as Head of Sibford School on 1 September said: “These are some strong results and I would like to offer my congratulations to both the pupils who have achieved them and the staff who have helped them to do so. This is particularly so in the case of those students whose results don’t make the headlines but who, while struggling academically and receiving extra learning support, have achieved some consistent C and D grades.
“I very much look forward to seeing many of these students when they return to Sibford in September to start their A Level studies and also look forward to welcoming students from other schools who are joining us for Sixth Form.”
