THIS YEAR’S GCSE results are “richly deserved”, a Charvil headteacher has said, after his school was awarded 100% pass rates in nine subjects.
Derren Gray, at The Piggott School, said his Year 11s have produced “outstanding” grades this summer following a difficult year.
Nine in 10 (91%) pupils passed English language and maths with grades of 4 and above,
Mr Gray said “exceptional results” were awarded across a range of subjects, with full pass rates in: art and design, biology, chemistry, Chinese, computer science, further maths, photography, physics and statistics.
“The vast majority of our students will be returning to study in our sixth form in September, together with a significant number of external candidates,” the headteacher said.
“Congratulations to all our students on their richly deserved success, and thank you to all of their parents for their unstinting support.”
One pupil, Erin, achieved straight 9s across the board.
She said: “When I opened my results I felt happy, relieved and proud.
“I wasn’t expecting to get such great results and I am so pleased with how it turned out.
“I’m planning on staying at the Piggott School for sixth form and am still deciding what I want to continue studying.”
Mr Gray also thanked the school’s teaching and support staff for their “hard work, dedication and professionalism” over the past year.
