Leaders at Lynn’s Springwood High School have expressed their delight at their students’ GCSE results, which were published this morning.
A total of 66 per cent of students achieved A* to C grades in both English and maths, which is a new performance indicator replacing the “gold standard” of five A* to C grades including English and maths.
However, officials say they expect there will be little difference between figures under the new and old measurements.
The school’s top performer was Lauren Carson, who achieved 14 A* grades.
And Rohan Rastogi attained 13 A* and an A grade at GCSE, plus a distinction star in an ECDL IT programme, the equivalent of a further A* grade, and an A* in A level maths.
Other top students were Joseph Vayalil Lawrence: 12 A* grades and two A grades; Anam Khatri, 10 A* grades and four A grades; Lara Sharpin: eight A* grades and five A grades; Chloe Pegg: seven A* grades, five A grades and two B grades; Danny Jackson: four A* grades, seven A grades, one B grade and two C grades;
Joe Wells: three A* grades, eight A grades and two B grades; Oliver Graves, three A* grades, seven A grades and three B grades; Milly Griffin: two A* grades, nine A grades and three B grades; Talhah Malik: three A* grades, nine A grades and two B grades; Harry Thompson: four A* grades, five A grades and five B grades
Executive headteacher Andy Johnson said: “This is a magnificent set of results for the school. It has been a brilliant year for Springwood at both outstanding GCSE and A level results.”
Roger Livesey, the school’s chair of governors, added: “Springwood has delivered an outstanding set of results for the school this year. I am proud of how hard the students and staff have worked.”
