GCSE Examination Results 2018
Students receiving their GCSE results at Sponne School in Towcester today were again delighted with their outstanding results. This pattern of exceptional performance has continued for an eighth successive year with students not only attaining highly but showing significantly greater progress than would be expected nationally from their starting points at the end of Year 6. Despite the uncertainty with the new and more challenging 9-1 assessments being introduced for most subjects the results at Sponne have held up and in many aspects improved for students of all abilities.
Among the many delighted students celebrating today were Sam Allen, Poppy Lefroy-Brooks, Catrin Sinclair and Emily Rogers who all gained 10 equivalent A* grades whilst Emily Blakeney and Luke Williams were just one behind with 9. Tabitha Jayasuriya, Sophie Marks and Samatha Martin all achieved 8 top grades and a further 12 students gained 5 or more. In addition many others achieved multiple A* and A grades and over half of the students attained at least one A* and A grades which is an outstanding outcome. It is likely that once the National data is released Sponne will once again be in the top 10% of schools in the country.
Headteacher Mr Iain Massey said: “I am tremendously proud of the achievements of all of our students at Sponne School. No matter what their starting point when they arrive they have made exceptional progress and along with all my staff and Governors I would like to congratulate them for working so hard and gaining what they deserved. Along with the high A level results last week, Sponne is maintaining the outstanding judgement made by Ofsted in 2012. Well done to all our students and their teachers in preparing them for their exams”.
A Level Examination Results 2018
Students and staff at Sponne School in Towcester are celebrating another excellent set of A Level results this year with many individuals achieving outstanding grades. Despite new specifications and a return to the two year A Level programme, results have remained very similar to previous years and most students continue to achieve the highest grades available. Just under 50% 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 more than a third of all students achieving at least one of these.
Amongst the many delighted students today was one who achieved A*’s in all 4 of his subjects, James Odwell, who will be studying Engineering at Oxford University in the new academic year. Tom Massey achieved 3 A*s and 1A, while Nick Green, Luis Lopes, Hal Pilkington and Beatrix Wagner all gained 1A* and 2A grades. In addition to this, Natasha Partridge, Elliot Hutton, Elena Warner, Matthew Wheeler and Ruth Wright all achieved the equivalent of 3 A grades. Many other students gained at least 1 A* or A in their set of results.
Headteacher Mr Iain Massey said: “We are really proud of our students who have done so well in gaining these excellent results. It is reassuring that the grades reflect the hard work that students put in and the outstanding teaching and support provided by the staff at Sponne School. Well done to all our students, including those who have secured their first choice university places.”
Miss Victoria Austin, Head of Sixth Form from Sponne, said: “I am always amazed by the high standards our students achieve and want to congratulate them on their excellent results. I am so pleased for them and wish them all the best in the future”.
