Clean sweep for top class students

Published on isbi School News dated Tuesday 13th of September 2011

Top class students at Wisbech Grammar School have achieved a 100 per cent pass rate at grade C or above in five subjects, including English and mathematics.

High flying pupils also bagged the school's biggest ever haul of A* results, with a quarter of the passes being at the highest grade a four per cent improvement on last year's figure of 21 per cent and more than half the passes were at the top two grades of A* and A.

Eight students, Jessica Bullock, Matthew Coleman, Francesca Cooper, Sophie Culshaw, Jack Hutson, Jonathan Ison, Isabelle Le Gallez and John Redwood, secured a clean sweep, gaining A* or A grades in all of their subjects and the school achieved its highest ever tally of average passes per pupil at 9.1 per cent.

Headmaster Nicholas Hammond said: 'This is an excellent performance by our GCSE candidates, which reflects the hard work that they have put into their studies over the course of two years.

'With one quarter of all exams taken receiving the top A* grade, congratulations are also due to our staff who have supported their students so effectively. Whilst there are many fine individual performances, particular congratulations should go to the eight students who achieved a clean sweep of A and A* grades.'
