A record year for Urmston Grammar’s GCSE students
The corridors at Urmston Grammar were filled with hopeful students awaiting their GCSE results on the morning of Thursday 25th August . The mood of anticipation amongst Year 11 students and their parents soon turned to elation as they celebrated the school’s best ever results – with a record number of A* and A grades. 68% of all the grades awarded this year were A*and A.
Mrs Wall, Principal, said “The hard work, time and effort that has been invested by so many students has paid dividends; students demonstrated a conscientious and determined approach to their studies and we are proud of their academic achievements.”
A remarkable 28 students achieved A*/A in all their subjects: Bradley Cook, Charlie Hadfield, Alex Lay, James Neve, Nuala Becket, Chloe Briggs, Ellie Carter, Dayna Baker, Brandon Harris, Bethany Molyneux, Daniel Ramsden,, Sophie Sampson, James Smirthwaite-Curran, Olivia Bannerman, Aparna Bose, Alex Gould, Eleanor Hickman, Amy Jackson, Phoebe Myres, Chloe Adams, Ashleigh Blood, Finn Daly, Matthew Graham, Ellis Lindop, Hidayah Ma, Jessica Molyneux, Israel Shitta and Amy Wright
The outstanding results this summer are testament to the commitment and hard work of our students and the support they have received from staff throughout their time at school, but especially as they approached the examination period.
It is a real credit to our students that so many are in such a strong position to start the next phase of their education in the sixth form at our school and to continue to develop their impressive academic record. For those who have chosen alternative pathways, their education at Urmston Grammar will provide a solid foundation for future success.
Congratulations to all the Year 11 students at Urmston Grammar who have achieved record results
‘Tears of Joy’on A level Results Day.
There were tears of joy in Urmston Grammar’s main hall on A-level results day as so many of our Year 13 students achieved their personal goals and secured places at the universities of their choice.
We are proud that the sixth form achieved an A’ level pass rate of 99.4% and 63% of all grades were A* to B grades. A remarkable 19 students gained a sweep of straight A* and A grades: Ahsen Arshad, Sam Dillon, Georgia Guilbert, Zoe Hansford, Rachael Horner, Natasha Hylton, Sammie Johnson-Audini, Harry Lomas, Drew Loynes, Alexander Lyons, Sam Mccall, Patrick Moloney, Alex Myall, Sanjay Patel, Ninam Rabbitt, George Richardson, Jack Thompson, Max Towers and Thomas Yung.
There were so many individual successes that we would like to congratulate all our students for their hard work and dedication. It was wonderful that so many of the students took the time to thank their teachers for their support through the two years of intense study.
We are proud of all our students and wish them all well in the next phase of the education or employment. Well done to all!
