Princethorpe students congratulated for ‘excellent’ GCSE results amid ‘unprecedented challenges’

Rugby Editorial 25th Aug, 2022   0

PRINCETHORPE College students have been congratulated for their ‘excellent’ GCSE results in the face of ‘unprecedented challenges’.

From a cohort of 127 pupils, over half of all entries at the school achieved the coveted 9, 8 or 7 grades – and 39 of its Year 11 pupils achieved eight or more of the top three grades.

In English, 68 per cent of pupils achieved 9, 8 or 7 grades, and the standard of Art was again commended by the examination board moderators, with 69 per cent being graded 9 or 8.

Students Oliver Llewellyn, Dina Parmenter, Amy Hogg, Joe Newborough, Harry Kelly and Daisy Southgate all scored seven or more grade 9s.

Headmaster Ed Hester said: “I would like to congratulate all our Year 11 pupils. We are delighted with the excellent results they have achieved against the backdrop of unprecedented challenges that this year group have faced over the past two years.

“It is a privilege to be amongst so many happy pupils this morning and marvellous to be able to celebrate such success. We are of course delighted with the exceptionally high number of top grades, but we are proud of all our pupils who have worked hard and done their very best.

“While their results are important, this year group have also demonstrated many fine qualities worth celebrating, such as kindness, respect, determination and friendship.

“All credit goes to our pupils and staff for their commitment, collaboration and hard work. We look forward to welcoming the vast majority of this cohort back into our successful Sixth Form for the next stage of their education.

“It was also lovely to see the success of some our younger pupils, with over 85 per cent of the 27 Year 8 and 9 pupils who took Project Qualifications achieving grade A or A*, and 91 per cent of the 23 Year 9 pupils who took Latin Level 1, achieving grade A or A*. Well done to them all.”
