High-achieving pupils at Wisbech Grammar School are celebrating their GCSE results this morning.
Headmaster, Mr Chris Staley, said: “This has been a vintage year for GCSEs at Wisbech Grammar School and they represent our best results since 2010, which is fantastic news! Considering the curriculum changes, the move to the new 9-1 grading system and the fact that national press headlines have today been talking about the significant drop in top grades awarded this summer, the pupils at Wisbech Grammar have bucked this trend. I am incredibly pleased by their achievements, the dedication of the staff and last, but by no means least, the support from parents/guardians.
With the headline figures of:
96% of pupils achieving A*-C
51% of the year group achieving either A*-A or 9-7 in their examinations
98% of pupils achieving 9-4 in both English and Maths
These results demonstrate that through inspiring teaching, providing the correct environment where top quality learning can take place and coupling that to a dedicated staff and motivated and engaged pupils, what can be achieved both inside and outside the classroom. These results are a ringing endorsement for the overall educational offer we provide and I am very proud of everyone associated with the results the School has produced this year”
