Wycliffe GCSE students buck national trend
WYCLIFFE pupils have bucked the national trend with their GCSE results this year.
While the national average of students earning five grades or more of A* to C was 68.1 per cent, Wycliffe saw 85 per cent of its year 11s achieve the same level.
Of the pupils studying their GCSEs at the Stonehouse school, 16 per cent achieved A*, 36 per cent attained A* or As.
Lara Bathurst, from Berkeley, was thrilled to learn she received four A*s and seven As.
"I wasn’t expecting all my results to be so strong. I did put a lot of effort into revising," she said.
Lara, whose mother is a magistrate, will go on to take her A-levels and hopes to study law.
Cressie Wyer, from Saul, who received four A*s and five As, said she was most proud of her A* in history.
"I find history really hard so I had to revise a lot. I’ll go on and take my A-levels though I am not sure what I want to study at university."
Another Berkeley resident, Robert Allman-Carter, received four A*s and five As.
Headteacher Margie Burnet Ward said: "I am delighted that the hard work of our teachers and the pupils has paid off with some truly exceptional achievements right across the spectrum of ability."
