Lawrence Sheriff maintains strong GCSE record

LAWRENCE Sheriff students have maintained their strong track record at GCSE.

All students achieved five or more GCSEs at the equivalent of A*-C including English and Mathematics, while 60 per cent of entries were graded A/A* or equivalent.

Despite changes to English, English Literature and Mathematics – which are now graded from 9 to 1 (with grade 9 being the highest mark and grade 1 the lowest) – results remained high along with the three sciences, Computer Studies and a host of other subjects. 30 per cent of students gained the top Grade 9 in Mathematics, with 80 per cent overall gaining the equivalent of A*/A grades in the subject.

In total, 30 students gained the equivalent of 10 or more A* or A grades.




Headteacher Dr Peter Kent said: “Although the new examinations in English and Mathematics have been designed to be much more difficult, I would like to congratulate our students on maintaining the very high standards of previous years.

“Results such as these are only achieved through a lot of hard work on the part of students and staff. It is also important to remember how much parents do to support their children during this challenging period.”
