Stonar GCSE results smash national averages

Stonar's pupils, parents and teachers alike are celebrating after a fantastic crop of GCSE results at the school and 36% of grades at A*-A.

English results were particularly stellar, with 66% of pupils achieving A*-A compared to a national average of 13.7% and 100% of pupils reaching a C or above. Maths was similarly buoyant with 40% of grades at A*-A against a national average of 15.9%. Several pupils achieved 6 A* grades.

"We are delighted by our pupils' success," said Head, Dr Sally Divall. "With much in the press today about the decline in grades, it is fantastic to see an upswing in the number of A*-C grades at Stonar. As we are not an academically selective school, this is testament to the hard work our pupils and teachers put in."

The level of achievement at GCSE at Stonar has been consistently high over the past 6 years with the overall percentage of A* - C grades being regularly in excess of 90%. At the same time, our pupils are taking part in a stimulating range of co-curricular activities and we would like to congratulate them on all their successes.

Stonar's A Level students were similarly delighted with their results.  There were some outstanding individual successes and places gained at a number of top universities.

Felicity Birkett gained A*A*A grades in French, History and Spanish; over the next few weeks she will be working at one of Stonar's sister schools at St Cugat in Spain before taking up her place at Durham University to read Modern Languages and Cultures. Meanwhile Isabella Journeaux is celebrating full marks in all her Geography papers: she is off to Southampton University to study Fashion and Textile Design.

Other students were thrilled to gain places at universities such as Bath, Southampton and Cardiff to study a diverse range of courses including Biology, Computer Forensics, English Literature and Politics. We wish them all every success in their future careers.
