Congratulations GCSE Results Day
Year 11 students and staff at Denmark Road High School are celebrating excellent results today with 30% of all grades achieving grade 9 and 60% at grade 8. Over 80% of all entries were graded at 9-7. The fantastic performance of the students was highlighted by 85 students achieving ten or more 9-7 grades. 43 students achieved ten grade 8s or better and nine students achieved at least ten GCSEs at the top grade of 9.
Orla Gibson achieved eleven grade 9s: “I can’t believe them. I’m especially shocked to get full marks in my English exam.” Mei Marriette achieved ten grade 9s. She is going to study Biology, Chemistry, Mathematics and Further Mathematics at the Denmark Road Sixth Form. Nathasha Doherty opened her envelope to find an unbelievable set of results with ten grade 9s, she is hopeful to sleep better tonight than last night. Celia Shankster could sympathise with the lack of sleep: “I don’t think I slept more than two hours total.” Celia achieved ten grades at 8 or above.
Headteacher Claire Giblin said “Our Year 11 students have performed fantastically and achieved individual outcomes to be proud of in this year’s examinations. It is testament to both the students’ hard work and the quality of teaching that we have seen such fantastic progress being made by the entire year group. They have demonstrated the importance of commitment and application in everything they do. We are all immensely proud.”
The GCSE success follows last week’s excellent A Level results with over 45% of A Level entries graded A*-A. Assistant Headteacher: Progress and Achievement, Tom Mannion said “It has been a privilege to work with this year group who have achieved such fantastic results. There is a strong community ethos at the Denmark Road, and this has been demonstrated in how closely Year 11 have worked with our dedicated staff and the support they have provided each other. They have contributed hugely to the school and local community and very much deserve their success. Congratulations!”
