A HEADTEACHER hopes her pupils’ impressive GCSE results will stand them in good stead during these ‘testing’ economic times.
Lynne Horner, headmistress of private school Abbey Gate College at Saighton, is pleased that more than 53% of grades achieved were at A* or A and 80% of the grades secured by the students were at grade B or better.
She said: “These results are testament to the hard work and dedication of the pupils, the quality of teaching and first rate pastoral care that they receive here.
“What is most encouraging is that some of the very best results were achieved by those who have also shown great commitment to drama, music, art or sport.
“In these testing times it is important that young people not only achieve good academic results but can also pursue character building and diverse activities beyond their studies.”
High fliers achieving all A*s and As include sporting stars Liam Moses, Aliya Biggs, Ellie Hook and Sophie Jenkins plus singing virtuoso Peter Edge, Sylvie Christian and Ceri Profitt.
