Woodrush students shine through despite tough new GCSE exams

Correspondent 23rd Aug, 2018

CELEBRATIONS are taking place for Woodrush students after they collect their much anticipated GCSE results.

The youngsters rose to the challenge of sitting more than 20 exams, under the rigour of new specifications combined with final legacy curricula.

Exceptional performance occurred for almost half of all Woodrush GCSE students who achieved one or more of the top grades 9-7.

In all 70 per cent achieved the equivalent of 5 or more grades at C (or 4) and above and 65 per cent of students attained the expected standard in both English and Maths, with particularly impressive results from the Science and Creative Arts faculties.

Headteacher Natalie Rancin said: “Congratulations to all of our students who worked hard to achieve success in their exams.

“We look forward to many of them joining our Sixth Form in the next academic year and wish our leavers every success in the future.”
