Year 11 students at Sponne were delighted with their GCSE results. These results maintain the outstanding ones previously achieved with 81% of students gaining 5A*-C grades including English and mathematics.
Among the many delighted students celebrating today were Callum Beck, Charlotte Clark, VJ Pratley and Emily Woodhead all with 9A* and 3A grades, Lauren Johnson with 8A* and 3A grades and Merryn Odell, Bryonie Owen and Caroline Watkins with 7A* and multiple A grades. In addition Annabel Basford, Eloise Kirby, William Lewis, Grace Neasham and Amber Wiles all achieved 6A* plus other A grades while Ella Mills and Catherine Woollard both gained 5A* grades. Many more students gained excellent grades and as a consequence, the schools performance in the preferred government’s measure of 5A*-C including English and mathematics has once again broken the 80% barrier with 73% of all students gaining at least 1A* or A grade.
Year 13 students were delighted with their A level results with so many students achieving outstanding results. Results have continued to be very high for many years and these results are extremely pleasing. Around 40% of students gained the very highest A*-B grades with all students passing. Students did particularly well with the very highest grades of A* and A grade with a fifth of the results being achieved at these levels.
Among the many delighted students celebrating today were twins Julian and Nicholas Woods, both gained 4 A levels including 2 A* grades and a further A and B. In addition to this, five other students gained 4 A levels at the highest grades including Samuel Bean, William Wilkins, Katy Davis, Beth Noble and Megan Elphick. Other very high scorers were Hayley Carr, and Emily Rawling both with an A* and 2 A grades. Further outstanding results were achieved by Jack Dunkley, Megan Goodman, Matthew Carmichael, Frances Hall and Hannah Jones.
Headteacher Jamie Clarke said: “These are really excellent results particularly given the recent changes in the way that performance is measured nationally. We are all tremendously proud of all of our students who have done so well in maintaining the results considered by Ofsted in 2012 to be outstanding. The school had excellent GCSE and A level results and it confirms just how high achieving our students are. Yet again, these results show that our students work really hard and this allows them to progress into sixth form studies and onto university or high calibre employment. Well done to all our students and their teachers in preparing them for their exams”.
