Success in new GCSEs

Students at Elizabeth Woodville School bucked the national trend with 6% of English results at the new grade 9 in both language and literature exams, twice the national average. Among these were Sam Barker, Claudia Burton, Niamh Finn, Rebekah Potter, Amy Sellar and Olly Tench who achieved an impressive grade 9 in both English exams. Other successes included Patrick Forster with ten A/A* grades overall, Roman Martin with nine A/A* grades, and Leyla Bedwi with nine A grades.

Jez Bennett, Headteacher, said: ‘Our students have again demonstrated that hard work and determination pays dividends in achieving top exam results. This year has seen the culmination of significant changes in the examination system in England. Our students and staff have planned and prepared for this change, and the good results are testament to their efforts.”
