Students at Dane Court Grammar School celebrated the results of years of hard work today (August 24) as they collected their GCSE results.
The curriculum for maths and English is new, and much more complex. Results were particularly excellent at the school in English, maths, science, art, food technology and drama.
Top scoring students were: Sophie Ait Tayeb, Olivia Button, Mathew Cherian, Molly Hall, Daniel Nisan, Eljoh Balajadia, Lily Finch, Emma Laffargue, Antonio Romei, Sophie Buchanan, Kurt Harris, Leah Henniker, Mia Jacobs, Siobhan Joseph, Poppy Langman, Katie Longley, Charlotte Williams, Tasmin Wilmshurst and Ben Weatherley, all of whom gained nine or more top grades.
Head teacher Andrew Fowler said:“I am thrilled for our students, and congratulate them on their excellent results. They have worked hard for these grades, and they deserve their success. I would also like to thank their teachers and parents for their incredible support.”
Sarah Snaydon, assistant head teacher and head of Key Stage 4, added: “Our students have worked hard, often having to overcome difficult circumstances. There are some lovely characters in this year group and I have enjoyed working with them. I am delighted that they have achieved such great results. They can now progress to their chosen sixth form courses.”
Dane Court Grammar School welcomes prospective sixth form students to start International Baccalaureate courses this September.
