Elspeth Leslie: “I have achieved higher than my expectations and I am over the moon. I would like to thank all the staff and teachers at Keswick School for their support over the years. I am continuing on to Keswick sixth form taking biology, chemistry and PE as I wish to study medicine at university and Keswick is the perfect place to achieve my ambitions!”

Oliver Cake: “I am very happy with my results. I couldn’t have done it without the support from staff and other students.”

Cara Hutchinson commented: “I am extremely delighted. I am so thankful to all my teachers for these results. I am going on to study chemistry, maths, further maths and biology at A level.”

Amy Binks: “I am overwhelmed with my GCSE results and the support I was given by my friends and staff at Keswick School. I am now going on to study art, history and philosophy and ethics at Keswick sixth form.”

Max Pickering: “I am thrilled with my results as it has allowed me to move into the sixth form and then hopefully onto a career in sports psychology.”

Ben Norris: “I am extremely pleased with my results, I have had brilliant support from the teachers and I am now going on to study maths, further maths, physics and chemistry at Keswick.”

Alex Ewing said: “I am over the moon with my results. I would like to thank all the teachers that made this possible for me.”

Ellie Glaister: “I am so happy with my results, I exceeded all of my expectations. I would like to thank all of the teachers and staff for their help and support. I am continuing to study at Keswick School to study maths, physics, German and further maths.”

Leah Montgomery: “I’m overwhelmed and delighted with my results and I’m looking forward to coming back to study English language, government and politics, drama and music.”

Robert MacMillan: “I am happy with my results and I feel I will advance even more in my learning at sixth form.”

This year there are more changes than ever to the grading system, grade boundaries and performance measures. With the most significant change coming in nearly all GCSEs outside of English and mathematics. Therefore, for both GCSE and A Level results we have agreed with the Cumbria Association of Headteachers (CASH) to “ensure that collectively and individually we have accurate data to share with the media, the public and other stakeholders who are as keen as we are to celebrate the successes of our children and to congratulate all of our school staff. As always there are a number of queries over re-marks and grade boundaries and so, once the official DfE September checking exercise has been completed we will issue our headline data. For now, it is essential we focus on the real stars of today; the students.”
