[S]tudents and staff at Richard Rose Central Academy are celebrating after students received their GCSE results today.
20 of the most popular GCSE subjects are now graded in the numerical format. These include history, geography, sciences and modern languages, all of which have been designed to be more robust and challenging.
Individual successes included:
Jasmin Canny: “I have achieved the results I need to come to Sixth Form in September. I will be studying A-Level English, A-Level History, Level 3 Textiles and Level 3 Health and Social Care. After Sixth Form I hope to go on to university to study Primary Education.”
Jamie McLauchlan: “I am happy with the results I got today. I will be returning to Sixth Form in September to study A-Level Maths, Physics, and Art and hope to go on to University.”
Calum Skelton: “My results were better than I expected. I am really pleased with them. I am hoping to start an Apprenticeship in Hospitality Management with my employer Hallmark Hotel. The support we have had from the staff at the school has made a real difference and the opportunity to have extra lessons and work has helped us to get good grades.”
Alicia Skowronek: “I got the results I expected and hoped for. All the hard work has paid off. I will be returning to Sixth Form in September to study A-Level Biology, Level 3 Health and Social Care and A-Level Photography so that I can go on to study nursing at University.”
Today’s results follow last week’s strong A Level results, which saw Richard Rose Sixth Former Jake Sanderson accepted to the University of Cambridge to study Law.
Stephen Gilby, Principal of Central Academy, said: “I would like to congratulate our students on their hard work and achievement today. With these results, many will now be able to join our Sixth Form and, as our A Level results last week demonstrated, will go on from there to good universities.”
