Brooke Weston students celebrate GCSE success!

Brooke Weston students celebrate GCSE success!
Smiles all round
Thursday 27th August 2009 by C. Freeman
Nearly a quarter of all students at Brooke Weston have achieved 10 or more A* or A grades at the end of Year 11. The amazing statistic comes as the amount of GCSE exams awarded top grades rose to a third and two students achieved the equivalent of 19 GCSEs in total.

All 183 students in the year group were awarded five or more GCSEs graded A* to C, meaning Brooke Weston's record of a 100% pass rate has been maintained for the sixth year running. 23 students gained an A Level equivalent in eBusiness, 18 of which were graded at Distinction (equivalent to an A grade at A Level).

Principal Miss Stringer said: 'These amazing results round off a very successful year. We have had some truly exceptional individual grades, but for ALL students to achieve five GCSEs and nearly a quarter of the year group gaining ten or more A* or A grades is phenomenal. Add to that our cohort who achieved A Level graded work two years ahead of schedule and to say that I am proud of our students and staff would be an massive understatement!'
