Queen Elizabeth Grammar School staff and students are very pleased by the 2019 GCSE results.
Headteacher Mr Buckland said, “Cumbrian schools are proud to serve our children, their families and the communities they come from. 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, we are making sure 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.
“Our students are also more than the sum of their grades and so today we want to celebrate the individuals who have shone for all sorts of reasons.”
Overall 23 students achieved 9 or more of the top GCSE grades, between 7 and 9.
Spectacular-results were achieved by many including: Lewis Grant who achieved 9 grade 9s, a grade 8 and the top grade possible in Further Mathematics. Also achieving top grades in Further Mathematics, were Guy Griffiths, who managed a very balanced 6 grade 9s and 6 grade 8s and Matthew Rogerson who also performed extremely well with 8 grade 9, 1 grade 8 and 2 grade 7 GCSEs. Other notable performances came from James Rocca, Emily Bauer, Finlay Macdonald and Ellie Weston. The year group as a whole has produced an outstanding set of results and they should be very proud of their achievements. I would also like to thank the staff who have worked so hard to ensure the students achieved their full potential once again.
