Students and staff at Stoke Park School are celebrating a set of GCSE results that have significantly exceeded expectations. Despite the increased difficulty of GCSE’s, Stoke Park students have responded positively and the percentage of students achieving a grade 9- 5 in both English and maths has increased by 12% compared with the school’s performance in 2017. Well over two thirds of students achieved a grade 9 - 4 in English and two thirds achieved a grade 9 - 4 in Maths.
A number of students achieved the very highest grade, grade 9, in their strongest subjects and a significant percentage of this year’s cohort secured grades 7, 8 and 9 across the majority of their subjects.
Khulsam Musaliar secured high grades across all subjects but was particularly delighted with her grade 9 in maths. She commented, “our teachers remained after school and came in during the holidays to make sure we got the best grades possible. We worked hard but it has paid off and I am now looking forward to studying maths, chemistry and biology at A level.”
Valentina Temaj, who is hoping to pursue a career in graphic design after completing her education was over the moon with her grades, especially her grade 9 in Art and Design. She said, “I am delighted and amazed. I tried hard, but my teachers were amazing and were always pushing us to do better in class.”
Charandeep Gill who achieved three grade 8 grades and three grade 7 grades commented, “our teachers worked hard with us to pin point those specific areas where we needed to do more work to secure the highest grades. I am now confident that I will stay at Stoke Park sixth form and study maths, further maths and physics at A level.”
A delighted Joseph Clements said “hard work and quality teaching has helped me secure my grades which have exceeded my expectations. Our teachers gave up their own time to run additional classes after school and in the holidays and that made all the difference.”
Executive Head teacher, Peter Thomas commented, “we are delighted to see Stoke Park students getting rewarded for their hard work this year. They deserve their success and we are looking forward to welcoming a significant proportion of them back to study A levels with us in our sixth form here at Stoke Park School.”
