Cedars Upper School students were celebrating some excellent GCSE results today and many students achieved top grades across all subjects.
Headteacher Steven Palmer said: “Whilst the press this morning has been talking about pass rates falling nationally, I am pleased to say that the five A*-C with English and Maths pass rate has gone up at Cedars.
“I think that our students have shown great resilience over the past two years, as the government have continually moved the goalposts and made year on year comparisons so meaningless.
“I am especially pleased with our Maths results, with close to 80% of students achieving A*-C grades. Results in many other subjects such as Biology, Chemistry, Physics, French and Music were also superb.”
Some of the Linslade school’s top performers were:
Hannah Avery - 6A* and 5A
Abigail Barton - 6A* and 5A
Emma Borrill - 3A* and 7A
Thomas Bradbury - 4A* and 6A
Cameron Hemmings - 7A* and 4A
Carys Holland - 4A* and 7A
Adam Jest- 9A* and 2A
Harry Lee - 6A* and 5A
Chris McVeigh - 7A* and 4A
Abigail Meyer - 8A* and 4A
Oliver Murphy - 9A* and 1A
Dan Thompson - 9A* and 2A
Kimberley Wardle - 1A* and 9A
Mr Palmer added: “We were also delighted to hear that since the A-level results last Thursday, an independent body has stated that the progress our students make in the sixth form is “excellent”.
“As always, parents and carers should be really proud of the efforts and achievements of these young people and I am so grateful for all of the hard work put in by the staff at Cedars.
“We are over-subscribed for September, about to open our new £1 million pavilion, and we are looking forward to another exciting year at the school.”
