Princethorpe College Pupils Celebrate Their GCSE Results
Despite the challenges of COVID, Princethorpe College pupils are today celebrating their GCSE results. From a cohort of 137 pupils over two thirds of all entries were graded 9, 8 or 7 and 56 Year 11 pupils received nine or more 9, 8 or 7 grades.
There were many exceptional personal achievements, special congratulations go to Joshua Apaya, Keira Eaton, Amélie Friess, William Hawkins, Freya Mills, Eleanor Page, Oscar Page, Pratheesh Prabakaran and Madoc Williams, who all achieved eight or more grade 9s.
Overall, over 99% of the grades achieved were levels 9 to 4.
Ed Hester, Headmaster, commented, "These grades are well-deserved and reflect the hard work and commitment of this year group. All these pupils have been through a very demanding 16 months that included lockdowns and periods of enforced self-isolation which for many was very tough. Although not ideal, our pupils and staff met the challenges of home learning, allowing pupils to complete their courses successfully.
He continued, “I would like to congratulate all of our Year 11 pupils. They have shown resilience and focus and have pulled together as a group. We now look forward to welcoming the vast majority of them back into Sixth Form, alongside a good number of new entrants who will be joining us from other local schools.
He concluded, “We are of course delighted with the high number of top grades, but we are proud of all our pupils who have worked hard and done their very best over the last two years. Whilst their results are important, this year group have also demonstrated many fine qualities worth celebrating, such as kindness, respect, determination and friendship. Lastly I would like to thank our dedicated teaching staff who have worked with immense professionalism and rigorous attention to detail to support pupils and submit the grades on their behalf.”
