Drama Trip

Year 11, 12 and 13 Drama students are off to Bournemouth University tomorrow to watch a live performance of Clybourne Park by Bruce Norris, as part of their exam requirements.

Clybourne Park received its British premiere at the Royal Court Theatre, London, in 2010, directed by Dominic Cooke. It won the 2010 Evening Standard Award for Best Play, and transferred to the West End in 2011.

We hope the students have a lovely time!

GCSE Results

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.

Mr Antram added “As a comprehensive school, we are proud of all our students, so many of whom performed well beyond predictions. We thank them, their families, and our brilliant staff for their hard work and commitment to learning.”
