GCSE: Exceptional GCSE results at Catmose College
Catmose College is celebrating another year of exceptional GCSE results, with 78.7 per cent of students achieving grade 4 or above (a grade C on the old system) and 58.6 per cent achieving grade 5 (a strong C) or above.
Over a quarter of all grades achieved by Catmose students were at grade 7 or above (A*/A) and the following students achieved six or more 8 or 9 grades: John Denton, Leah Crawford, Eve Slattery, Thomas Nguyen, Oliver Davies, Althea Doverty, Lucy Adams, Stephen Wilson and Rebecca Turton.
Deputy Head Girl, Rebecca Turton, was thrilled with her results stating she “loved the teachers and the Catmose community, the teachers made you believe in yourself” and Stephen Wilson said he “thoroughly enjoyed my five years at Catmose, fantastic opportunities and I have made life-long friends”.
The College is also anticipating a strong score on the governments progress measure with Christopher Wright, Izaak Cole Wallace and Sophie Williams (to name but a few) all making outstanding progress.
All students worked incredibly hard over the last five years and these results are a reflection of their dedicated and determined approach.
The College is extremely proud of their academic achievements, as well as their many successes in other fields – from consistently winning the Melton and Rutland Varsity sports competition, their strong performances in music and drama and their formidable debating team.
The Principal, Stuart Williams said: “Once again we are delighted that the hard work of students, staff and their parents has produced an outstanding set of results.
"The College places a strong focus on academic results without sacrificing a broad and valuable range of extra-curricular activities.
"It is this approach which makes Catmose so successful. The overwhelming majority of our students have secured a place at their first choice of post 16 provision and are in a strong position for the next stage of their lives."
