King Arthur’s School celebrates outstanding GCSE achievements
King Arthur’s School are thrilled to announce some outstanding achievements by its students in their GCSE examinations and other qualifications this year.
Alexia Negreci was thrilled with her results, achieving 7 x grade 9s, 3 x grade 8s and is going on to study A levels in maths and sciences at The Gryphon Sixth Form. Alexia intends to study medicine at Oxbridge in the future and has always been driven to succeed, despite the challenges of moving to the UK from Romania and speaking English as a second language.
Joining Alexia for Sixth Form study at The Gryphon School is Rosie Hodges, who achieved 6 x grade 9s, 1 x L2D* and 3 x grade 8s. She will be taking A levels in Maths and Science with a view to studying Physiotherapy at university. Rosie was ecstatic that all her hard work had meant she achieved such excellent results.
Devon Clarke and Gabrielle Voiciulevic both achieved 2 grade 9s, 3 x grade 8s, 3 x grade 7s. As accomplished arts students, they are both going on to study A levels including English at their chosen institutions.
Bobby Lloyd achieved 1 x L2D, 1 x grade 8, 2 x grade 7s, 4 x grade 6s, a L2M, and a grade 5. Reece Arnold achieved 2 x grade 7, 1 x L2M, 5 x grade 5, 1 x grade 6. Both students will be starting Level 3 courses in Public Services with a view to serving their community in the future.
Deputy Lead Prefect, Ollie Pyle, is delighted to join Kingston Maurward in September to study agriculture and continue developing the skills he has acquired during his time at King Arthur’s and on his placements at Rylands Farm.
Students collecting results today reported how pleased and proud they were, with so many wanting to pass on their gratitude to teachers and staff at the school, it was a wonderful opportunity for the school to celebrate success.
This year, following the cancellation of exams, grades were awarded through a process of teacher assessed grades, against a national standard and approved and awarded by the exam boards. The government is not publishing performance data for any schools or colleges this year due to the varying impact of the pandemic.
Headteacher, Jen Jacklin said: “We are immensely proud of all the work and achievements of our students, especially after such a difficult and disrupted couple of years. We are proud of the amazing resilience and determination they have shown across their education at KS4 and congratulate each, and every student for their individual success. Our teachers have worked tirelessly to support students in being able to progress to further education and study, and we are excited to hear what our students will achieve in the future.”
