GCSE Success at Walthamstow School for Girls
Students and staff proud of exceptional results.
Former Year 11 students returned to WSFG on Thursday morning to collect their GCSE exam results, greeted by their Headteacher, Meryl Davies and Deputy Headteacher, Sally Kennedy, as well as many of their former teachers who came to add their support.
Overall, the results for the group were even stronger than the previous year, with 80% achieving 5 grades 9-4 including English and Maths. In addition to this success, 32% of entries from all subjects were awarded a 7-9 grade, an increase on the previous year. Results for both English and Mathematics continue to be very strong, with 94% of students achieving a “good pass” or above in English and 79% of students achieving the same in Maths. English results were particularly strong at the school this year with almost half of students achieving a 7-9 grade. Impressively, 9 students achieved a grade 9 in English Language and a spectacular number of 20 students achieved a grade 9 in English Literature. There were also a number of extraordinary individual results, with one student achieving a grade 9 in all 10 subjects, as well as a grade A in additional Maths; 48 students achieved at least 5 grade 7s and above and 23 students gained at least 5 grade 8s and above.
Meryl Davies, Headteacher commented, “We are very proud of the fantastic results achieved by our students this year. This is testament to their hard work and the dedication of their teachers together with the support of their families. We are confident in the knowledge that they will now go on to great success in the next stage of their education”.
It has been a very successful year for WSFG, with exceptional results across the curriculum, as well as the number of individual students achieving phenomenal personal success. Today we celebrate not only the academic achievements but also the considerable academic progress and personal development made by all of our students during their time at WSFG.
