Straight A Grades Cap Excellent GCSE Results at Ockbrook School

Author: Redbrick Published: 24th August 2017 14:37


Joining the thousands of 16 year olds across the UK collecting GCSE results today, a group of five Ockbrook School students capped another excellent year of results, achieving straight A and A* grades. 

Congratulations go to local Derby students Amelia Teal, Basia Wolinska, Sarah Cullen and Sally Frankish, along with international student Polly To, who each achieved straight A* and A grades.

Headmaster Tom Brooksby joined students staff and parents in celebrating this year's results: "I am delighted to report another year of excellent grades at GCSE (and iGCSE), particularly our 100 per cent Mathematics pass rate. Once again our students have worked extremely hard to realise their potential, as have my outstanding teaching staff. They are a credit to the school and their parents and I look forward to welcoming them back into our thriving Sixth Form."

Amanda Redgate, Chair of Governors, Ockbrook School, adds: "This has been another excellent year for the school. We prepare our students to achieve academically, whilst focusing on their personal development. It is this preparation for life beyond school that sets our students apart in terms of maturity and preparedness for the next step in life's adventures. Well done to all."

With 89 per cent of papers graded A* to C, students have strong foundations on which to make the transition into their A-levels.

2017 results:
5x A* - C including Mathematics and English = 87%
All entries A* - C = 89%
Mathematics A* - C = 100%
English Language A* - C = 98%
Modern Languages A* - C = 94%
Attainment 8 including iGCSE = 58
