STUDENTS at Crompton House School ‘thoroughly deserve’ their excellent set of GCSE grades, says headteacher Mr Karl Newell.
Attainment at the school for this year’s results is well above the national average, including 116 top grade 9s. Overall, 28 per cent of all results were at grades 7-9, 67 per cent were at grades 5-9 and 85 per cent were at grades 4-9.
Outstanding results include Liana Cheetham with 10 Grade 9s, Arianne Makinson with eight grade 9s and two grade 8s, Joseph Parkinson with six grade 9s, three grade 8s and one grade 6, Hannah Penny with eight grade 9s and two grade 7s and Toby Ranson with 10 grade 9s.
Mr Newell said: ‘I am very pleased to congratulate our Year 11 students on their excellent GCSE results. As you know, this year’s results had to be awarded differently from usual, after exams were unable to go ahead due to Covid-19.
“However, we need to remember that our students have worked incredibly hard over the last two years and thoroughly deserve the grades they have been awarded.
“Exams are only the conclusion to many 1000s of hours of lesson and independent work. I am confident that the grades achieved by our pupils are a true reflection of their ability. I am particularly pleased that a significant number of our pupils have achieved top grades.
“We are looking forward to seeing many of our students return to Crompton House Sixth Form in September and to hearing how others have been successful in gaining places on various college courses.”
Other exceptional results include Sahira Bakht with five grade 9s, three grade 8s and one grade 7, Alex Brierley with five grade 9s, three grade 8s and two grade 7s, Samuel Brogden with four grade 9s, two grade 8s and two grade 7s, Amy Crowder with four grade 9s, four grade 8s and two grade 7s, Hannah Flint with four grade 9s, three grade 8s and three grade 6s, Saleem Islam with four grade 9s, three grade 7s and three grade 6s and Molly Mooney with four grade 9s, three grade 8s, one grade 7 and two grade 6s.
