Students at Minsthorpe Community College are, yet again, celebrating a marvellous set of GCSE results which saw strong outcomes in the proportion of students achieving 9-4 grades or equivalent in key performance indicators. For the majority of subjects, this was also the first year of grading on the new 9 to 1 GCSE grade scale. Given the challenge of new specifications and grades, these subjects have demonstrated continued success. We are particularly delighted with our superb English results with a quarter of the cohort achieving top grades (9-7).
These GCSE results, following on from the excellent A level results last week, are evidence that the College has a significant impact on student achievement because, irregardless of their progress that they have made by the time that students join us in year 7, the results clearly show that the College significantly improves their attainment by the time that they sit their GCSEs and, even more so, if these students stay on to study at Post-16. This can be clearly seen by the number of students making extremely good progress over this time in a wide range of subjects.
There were many individual student successes, but in particular special mention goes to Millie Andrews, Holly Harrington, Rebecca Henfrey, Ryan Inman, Chloe Pallett and Bailey Thomas, who all achieved excellent results including multiple 9-7 grades.
We are delighted in congratulating all of our students, parents and staff for their hard work in achieving such an excellent set of results!
