Students at Minsthorpe Community College have performed strongly for the second year in succession with a greater proportion attaining 5 or more A*-C grades including English and Maths than nationally. Over 62% of students achieved this measure and further academic success was demonstrated with a near 20% rise in the proportion of students gaining the English Baccalaureate.
The GCSE results, following on from the excellent A Level results last week, are evidence that the College has a significant impact on student achievement over both five and seven years of education at Minsthorpe, which is evidenced by those making better than national progress over this time in a wide range of subjects.
The College remains impressively above national outcomes on a wide range of major indicators.
There were many individual student successes, but in particular special mention goes to Caitlin Finney, Meghan Clamp, Ellie Lloyd, Hannah McDermott and Charlotte Pilbeam who all achieved 10 or more A* or A grades.
Another incredible success story came from Jack Hollins, who made outstanding progress throughout his time at Minsthorpe to record A grades in maths and in three sciences, amongst a host of other strong results.
We are delighted in congratulating all of our students and staff for their hard work in achieving such an excellent set of results!
