GCSE Success

More than half of all GCSE grades achieved by students at Newcastle-under-Lyme School in 2016 are A* or A grades.

Eleven students have achieved A* in eight or nine subjects, with the following six students achieving nine A* grades: Ellen Nelson-Rowe, Ananya Arora, Georgia Whilock, Choi Ling Yu, Fida Salahudeen and Saba Nasrolahi.

Furthermore, 79 per cent of all grades achieved by the 91 students who sat GCSE Examinations this summer are at A* - B.

Headmaster David Williamson said, “I congratulate all of our students on these superb GCSE results, reflecting so well on their study skills and the support of their wider families and teachers. These results, taken with our excellent A level performance last week, clearly demonstrate the academic strengths of our School.”

Newcastle-under-Lyme School sees increase in A* Grades

It’s another very impressive set of A level results at Newcastle-under-Lyme School. The percentage of entries awarded the highest A* grade has risen to 18.1 per cent.

Anmol Arora and Alice Bedwell achieved A* grades in four subjects with a further 13 students achieving A* or A grades in three or more subjects.

A total of 15 of the 56 students (27 per cent) achieved A* or A grades in at least three subjects.

This year the percentage A* and A is 44 per cent.

“We are delighted to report a set of top class A level results once again this year”, said Headmaster David Williamson. “We are very proud of our students who have worked so very hard to achieve these splendid grades. The efforts and commitment of parents, teachers and, of course, the students themselves should never be taken for granted. Well done to everyone!"
