Students from The Webber Independent School are celebrating their best ever set of GCSE grades this morning, with top grades significantly above the national average.
The results show 34 per cent of pupils received five or more A* to A grades – up 28 per cent on last year;
82 per cent of pupils received five or more A* to C grades – up 9 per cent on last year and 100 per cent of students achieved A* to G grades.
Nationally across England, Wales and Northern Ireland, those achieving the top A* to A grades fell slightly.
The highest achieving GCSE student at the school was Lola de Gorter with 10 A* grades and one A grade.
Her mother Mrs de Gorter said: “We are just delighted for Lola, she has worked so hard for these results over the last 2 years and she truly deserves her A* success today. We are all so proud of her.”
Penny Dunn also did well, achieving good grades across the board.
Penny’s mother Mrs Dunn said: “I am so happy for Penny and for the School with these great results. It has been a wonderful personal learning journey for Penny and she has gained so much from being here at Webber.”
Hilary Marsden, Principal, said: “Today’s results are the culmination of months of hard work by the students and teachers, and the grades show that Webber is going from strength to strength. We hope to continue our record as the best performing school in Milton Keynes.
“Parents and staff have also played their part in encouraging the children to reach these achievements, and everyone can be justly proud.”
Today’s results build on the fantastic A level results achieved by students at the school last week.
