Students Celebrate GCSE Success

The hard work and dedication of students at Stamford Welland Academy has been celebrated today as students collect their long-awaited GCSE results.

Despite the new measures coming into effect this year, results at Stamford Welland Academy have remained in line with last year, with some students recording some of the highest possible grades in the core subjects.

Josh Theodore (pictured right) achieved 8 grades at 9-5, including a 9 in Maths, an 8 in English Literature and a Distinction* in BTEC Sport.

Helena Walters (pictured left) achieved 8 grades at 9-5, including an impressive two grade 8s in Combined Science, a 7 in Maths and a 7 in Geography.

Over half of students achieved a 4-9 grade in English and Maths, which is the equivalent to the old A*-C grade.

Josh is the first student at Stamford Welland Academy to achieve the new Level 9, which is only awarded to the top 3 per cent of students in the country.

Harry Stephenson achieved 7 grades at 9-5, including an 8 in English Literature, 7 in English Language and a Distinction* in BTEC Sport.

Anthony Partington, Executive Principal of Stamford Welland Academy, said: “We are very proud of the hard work and dedication that our students have put in to achieving their results, and for the progress they have made since joining the school five years ago.

“I am also proud of our fantastic team of staff for the way they have handled the highly publicised further changes to the examination system this year.

“I wish our students all the best in the next chapter of their lives as they move onto Post-16 education and their future careers.”
