Director of learning says many students 'got the results they truly deserve'

Queen's Park High School's outstanding 2014 GCSE cohort

Queen's Park High School has built on this year’s examination success with outstanding GCSE results.

As a year group, students managed to achieve the target of five A* to Cs, including English and maths, that was set for the cohort at the start of their GCSE courses.

A number of students gained a string of high grades including those in the core subjects of English, maths and science.

High-flyers include Danielle Buckley (9A*s, 2As and 2Bs), Arien Cartwright (8A*s, 6As and 1B), Hannah Dixon (6A*s and 7As), Eleanor Finlay (4A*s, 7As and 1B), Alex Goldsmith ( 5A*s and 9As), James Houghton (3A*s, 7As and 1B), Catrin Jones (7A*s, 3As and 2Bs), Cian Salisbury (5A*s, 5As and 1B), Harry Williams (5A*s, 5As and 1B) and Jim Williams (3A*s and 9As).

Headteacher Stephen Casey said: “I am proud of our students and the results they have achieved.

“I am delighted for those students who achieved a string of grades at A and A*, as well as all those who have worked exceptionally hard to achieve their target grades.

“These results are a testament to the excellent learning partnership between our students, their families and the staff of QPHS. We pride ourselves on the quality of teaching and learning experienced by all our students.

“What is more we have been successful in narrowing the gap between the results of our more disadvantaged students and their peers, something we have been working hard on as a school as this is now a national initiative. We are pleased that our gaps are closing more quickly than they are nationally.”

Subjects in which exceptional results were attained included biology, chemistry and physics - with almost half of all grades at A* or A - as well as French, German and Spanish.

Photography, textiles and art all recorded high A*-C pass rates.

English and maths also performed strongly, increasing the school’s English Baccalaureate success by over 5% on last year.

Director of learning (14-19) Clare Scanlon said: “The students in this year group have shown a high level of commitment throughout Key Stage 4 and I am proud that so many have got the results they truly deserve.”

Key Stage 4 manager Ceri Prys-Owen added: “It has been a pleasure to work with these students throughout their time at this school and particularly during the past two years.

“Students grasped the many opportunities afforded to them via our well established raising achievement and intervention programmes and this has resulted in some excellent grades.

“I look forward to seeing the continued success of those students returning to our 6th form and wish them and the remainder of the year group every success as they move on the next stage of their lives.”
