Celebrations continued at St Wilfrid’s C of E Academy as GCSE students achieved fantastic grades across the board.
There was an understandable air of nerves as this cohort began to collect their results, with this being the debut year of the new format English and Mathematics examinations. The changing format appears to have rattled few cages here at the Academy as this week’s results are a welcome complement to last week’s strong set of A-Level results.
Matilda Brown (9 A*s and 1 A) and Amber Souch (8 A*s and 2 As) both collected a stunning set of results and Nick Collinson was delighted with his 7 A*s and 3 As. Emily Garsden, Alannah Herbert and Robert Marsh were also amongst the top achievers, receiving 5 A*s and 5 As apiece.
Souch said “I was a little overwhelmed when I opened them as I wasn’t expecting this at all! I’m really pleased with my 9s in English Language and English Literature – I’ve always loved English and plan to study them both here next year.”
