Weobley High School students are once again celebrating an excellent set of GCSE results across the board! Following an incredibly disrupted 2 years, the results have continued to improve, despite the obvious challenges. In many measures they have actually outperformed the teacher-assessed results from last year and certainly show impressive progress compared to pre-pandemic levels.
Nearly 80% of pupils achieved passes in both English and mathematics; well above national and local averages. This formed the foundation of a strong performance across all subjects with impressive performances in virtually every subject, again exceeding national averages.
Headteacher Dean Williams said, “This is an exceptional set of results for a cohort of pupils who have completed their GCSE courses under the most unique set of circumstances. Their focus, commitment and resilience have carried them through and they are reaping the rewards. I am incredibly proud of them and wish them all the best in their respective futures. I must also thank the staff; their dedication and relentless hard work has ensured that the pupils have continued to achieve across their subjects. It truly is a privilege to work alongside them.”
Many pupils achieved superb results but the following pupils deserve special mentions for their outstanding achievements:
Niav Fellows, Lucie Gummery, Aeowyn Johnson, Rain Peak-Morison, Francesca Wictome and Damian Zarzycki all achieved at least 9 GCSEs at Grade 7 or above. In addition, 3 pupils actually achieved the majority of their GCSEs at Grade 9 – this coveted grade is the equivalent to achieving an A**! Lucy Bentham, Elyssa Hunter and Molly Sherrard achieved 29 Grade 9s between them with Molly actually achieving a grade 9 in every single one of her 11 GCSEs!
