Westleigh High students proved they have what it takes with a strong performance in their GCSEs this year. Our school has seen continued improvement across headline measures when compared to results from previous years.
Among our fantastic high achievers were Amy Johnson, securing the much coveted gold standard grade 9 in English, and Robert Bridge equalling this with a grade 9 in maths, testament to unfailing dedication and commitment.
Mr Bramwell recognised the students’ outstanding achievement saying, “Grade 9 is reserved for exceptional performance so we are immensely proud of what our students and our staff have achieved.”
Amy and Robert were each understandably delighted with their results. Amy said, “I knew I was going to do fairly well because I’d studied hard but I never expected to do as well as I did.”
Both students will be going to Winstanley College for A Levels and plan eventually to study at Oxford University.
Amy said, “We’d like to say a huge thank you to Westleigh for everything they’ve done, all the support and the after school sessions. If it hadn’t been for that dedication we wouldn’t be here with these results today.”
Mr Bramwell added, “The most pleasing aspect of this is knowing that our students leave us having studied a broad and balanced curriculum, fully prepared to move on to further study or careers. We are proud of how our students have taken the new modifications in the delivery and grading of the exams this year into their stride and produced a set of commendable results.”
