Gartree’s First Ever Set of GCSE Results – And They Are Fantastic!
Gartree High School is delighted to be sharing a magnificent set of GCSE results with our students today. This is Gartree’s first set of GCSE results, and we could not be more proud of our students.
The Governors and Senior Leadership Team would like to put on record their heartfelt thanks to the staff at Gartree High School who have worked tirelessly to encourage our young people to make the very best of themselves. The very best rewards, though, are the looks of joy in the faces of our students.
Staff would also like to thank the parents and carers of our Year 11 students. Without their steadfast support of the school and guidance of their children, we know they could not have done as well as they have.
Details: Students at Gartree High School received their GCSE results this morning. Gartree’s first GCSE cohort exceeded the school’s high expectations, with a number of outstanding performances catching the eye.
“It’s great to see so many smiling faces,” said one parent.
There were impressive performances from Isha and Shazia, who each attained eight of the top level grade 9s. Shazia is going on to study maths, chemistry and physics.
Another student with a broad smile was Joanna, who gained grade 7 or above in all ten of her GCSE subjects. “I’m really pleased,” she said.
Head Girl Aqueelah scored 6 or above in all her subjects. “I was shaking when I opened my envelope,” she told us.
There were impressive performances from the boys too. Head Boy George scored a 9 in English Language, with 8s in English Literature, Film Studies, History and PE.
Nawwal was another stand-out student, with a grade 9, for grade 8s, four grade 7s and a 6. She intends to study biology, chemistry and French and was really pleased with her achievements.
Also high-performing boy was Devarsh, with a level 9, three level 8s and 5 level 7s. “I’m really happy,” he told us. “I can’t believe it!”
Also performing well was Mansing, with two grade 9s, three grade 8s, three grade7s and a merit in Creative Media. Well done, Mansing!
Several students left thank you messages for staff. “Thank you for teaching me for five years and helping me pass. I am so thankful for all you did to help me,” was one such message. Another read “To all the KS4 Gartree staff, thank you for all the support and help you gave me over the past two years. You have been amazing. I don’t believe I could have come through all this without you. Thanks for all your hard work and for making me want to work hard.” There were other personal messages for individual members of staff.
There was a big turnout of staff to chat with students about their results and to offer advice and encouragement.
As one parent said, “She just wanted to come to a school where she could study well and learn. She’s worked hard but the support of the teachers has been amazing.”
Overall figures for subjects, Progress 8 and comparisons with national averages will be published on the school website in due course.
Head teacher Sonia Singleton said, “Students and teachers have all worked very hard and we are delighted with these results.”
