Results Day 2018

Students at Springwell Community College are celebrating some excellent examination results this morning. Amongst those celebrating are five students who attained one or more grade 9’s. Grade 9 is the highest grade in the new 9-1 graded GCSEs and are awarded to only around two percent of students. The five are Hoi (biology, chemistry, physics and maths), Niamh (English language and history), Kimberly (English literature), Jason (maths) and Chelsea (chemistry).

The college’s analysis shows that the students who have made the most progress since sitting their primary school tests are Niamh, Chelsea, Leo, Jamal and Henry.

Overall more students achieved grades 4-9 in English and maths than in previous years, with the percentage increasing from 54 to 56%.

Headteacher Ian Wingfield said: “Our students thoroughly deserve this success which is down to their hard work and commitment during their five years with us. We wish them well in the next stage of their education or training and in their future careers.”
