Super students from the Webber Independent School are celebrating following the infamous anxious moments of opening the dreaded examination results ‘brown envelope’ for the first time in their school careers.
With a 100% pass rate and 76% of students securing A*-C grades overall at GCSE all students will now successfully progress into the sixth form or onto the college of their choice.
Two years of hard work and studying their subjects of choice has boosted the confidence and vision of the ambitious youngsters who will now begin working towards their next educational milestone.
High flying student Sammy Oram Jones was delighted with his A in Further Maths, having already secured an A* in Maths a year early. “I am so happy” said Sammy, whose parents described his achievements as “simply fantastic.”
Another student Georgia Hay made remarkable progress during her GCSE study to receive far better than anticipated grades. Her father Mr Hay said “This will change her whole outlook on life”- recognising the importance that confidence and belief play in securing positive outcomes.
Principal Sue Vig said, “Hugely well done to all of our students collecting results today. Today is an important stage in their journey as young adults; experiencing the rewards and outcomes of hard work and in making important ‘next step’ choices that will impact on their lives going forward. Good luck to each and every one of our 2014 year 11’s who have been exceptional ambassadors for our school. Now they must refocus as they embark upon the challenge of A Levels or the new learning approach of a vocational qualification.”
