Excellent 2019 GCSE results reflect continued focus on academic progress
This year’s Gosfield School GCSE students continue to prove the benefits of their hard work through the personalised learning they receive in our small, family friendly School. Over 90% of students achieved the coveted 9-4 grade in the core subjects of English, Maths and Science, and a very impressive 67% of all GCSE grades achieved were at least one grade higher than those predicted on entry.
There were some wonderful individual stories, including Bella Fairs and Ben King who gained Grades 9-7 in all their GCSEs, the old A* and A grades. James Jones was delighted with his top Grade 9 in English Literature, something Bella also achieved.
Principal Guy Martyn praised the dedication and focus of all involved to achieve this year’s success. “Today’s results demonstrate that exceptional progress is achievable by all students in our small, friendly non-selective School. Students and teachers have worked extremely hard together to ensure that every single additional mark could be gained by every single student. We’ve removed ceilings and raised expectations for everyone, and today is a wonderful day for students, parents and staff to reap the rewards brought by inspiring students to achieve beyond expectation.”
After last week’s fantastic A Level results, the GCSE results have been the perfect end to a superb academic year.
GCSE student Ben King, who gained all grades 9-7 in his GCSEs, commented: “I am delighted with my results! The small classes have really helped, I was able to get to know the teachers as well as them getting to know me. They tailored my revision to help me achieve my grades. I want to thank my teachers for helping me to achieve better than my expectations.”
Bella Fairs who achieved all the highest grades, added: “I’m really happy with my results. Thank you to my teachers for their support and commitment from the beginning. It has been like a family here.”
Student Scarlett Broadhurst, who gained a Grade 8 in English Literature, added: “I’m over the moon with my English Lit result, I did not expect to get such a high grade with having dyslexia.” Her mother, Marissa Broadhurst, commented: “I am so pleased with the school and how it has helped Scarlett. She has exceeded all expectations and we have the school to thank for that.”
