NO less than 15% of all GCSEs achieved at Bishop Heber High School in Malpas were at the top A and A* grades.
And Heber pupils are celebrating an impressive overall pass rate of 85.4% at grades A*-C.
Achieving at least eight A grades were Elizabeth Bellman (Broxton), Christopher Duffy (Tilston), Rachel Ewins (Shocklach), India Friswell (Holt), Edward Huxley (Tilston), Shahid Latham-Remtulla (Audlem), and Gabriella Paoloni (Farndon).
In the same high achievement bracket were Charlotte Rutherford (Holt), Clare and Stuart Sadler (Aldersey), Martin Sharp (Handley), Sophie Spencer (Farndon), Olivia Taylor (Marbury), Luke Thornton (Farndon), Rachel Trent (Malpas), Alex Walley (Macefen), Sally Williamson (Bickley) and Amy Winter (Malpas).
The school says results in English, mathematics, history, technology subjects, and ICT are all considerably above national expectations.
Headteacher David Curry is delighted with the students and praised the support given to them by their parents and teachers.
He said: “We are looking forward to welcoming students into the Sixth Form when term starts for them on Tuesday 1st September and, with these results, can be confident they will go on to emulate the A-Level and AS-Level successes we celebrated with our Sixth Form students last week.”
Students from across the ability range achieved results that were “a credit to them” demonstrating “superb progress” and in many cases had exceeded their predicted grades.
In addition to their GCSE successes, Year 11 students had also made valuable contributions to the school and wider community, including raising money for charities
