St Edward’s School are celebrating phenomenal results, building further on their previous successes. Headteacher Michael Antram commented, “There was a lot of uncertainty regarding the new grades in English and Maths, and we are thrilled with the picture at St Edward’s, where 74% of students achieved 5A*-C (9-4) including English and Maths. If we compare with last year’s A* -C including English and Maths, performance has improved by a staggering 15%, against a National backdrop of passes seeming to have fallen overall. 87% of students gained 9-4 (A*-C) in English and 80% gained 9-4 (A*-C) in Maths.”
There were some remarkable top performances by individual students, including Bethany Legg, who scored 6A* and 3 grade 8s; Emilia Simpson who scored 1 A*, 4As and 2 grade 9s, Isabelle Taylor with 5A*, 2 As, 1 grade 9 and 2 grade 8s. Daniel Sabu achieved 3A*s, 4As, 1 grade 9 and a grade 8, and Emily Williams scored 4 A*s, 2As, 1 grade 9 and a grade 8.
