GCSE Results 2017
Students at Springwell Community College received their GCSE results this morning. Amongst the grades received were those for the new GCSE courses in maths and English. These courses are now graded on the new 1-9 grade system and have been designed to be more challenging qualifications. Students at the college have coped well with the challenge and the proportion of students who passed both their English and maths GCSEs increased from 47% last year to 53%.
Headteacher Ian Wingfield said: “Our students have received some excellent results this morning and we are very proud of their achievements. They have responded well to the more difficult course content they have been studying and the results they have achieved are just reward for the hard work and commitment they have shown. I am sure they would want me to pass on their thanks to the dedicated team of teachers here at Springwell who have supported them so well throughout their time with us. As they move on to their next challenges we wish them well and look forward to hearing of their future successes.”

Students made exceptional progress over their five years at the college, exceeding the already high expectations we had of them: Shannon Hopkinson, Nicholas Kulagin Lepp, Abbey Thorneycroft and Melissa Vernon.
Overall the results showed significant improvement on the previous year and, on the new Progress 8 measure, Springwell students achieved grades higher than would be expected nationally.
Ian Wingfield, the college’s Headteacher, was delighted for the students: “The students thoroughly deserve this success. They have shown a great attitude to their studies this year, working hard in class, at home and in after college booster sessions. I know that they will want to thank their committed teachers for the support they have received and we all wish them every success in the next stage of their education or training. We have been concentrating our efforts over the last few years on improving the quality of teaching at the college and these results show that this is helping students to make better and better progress in their work. We have high hopes for our new Year 11 who being their final year next week.”
