Once again the students of Weobley High School have achieved an impressive set of GCSE results this year. Although there has been a return to pre-COVID boundaries, this year’s set of results remained positive.
One strong indicator is the proportion of students who have achieved the coveted higher-grade English Baccalaureate; almost a third achieved it this year – the highest ever and significantly above national and local averages. This reflects a focus on achieving the highest possible grades across a broad range of academic subjects including English and mathematics, sciences, humanities and languages. It also reflects a good performance in the full range of option subjects available at Weobley.
Headteacher, Dean Williams said, “I am so pleased for this cohort of students. They have had to remain resilient and focussed to achieve this impressive set of results, particularly against the backdrop of disruption and increased GCSE boundaries. Their hard work has paid off and I wish them all the best as they now progress into further education and training. I would also like to thank the staff for their incredible hard work in supporting the students to achieve these grades. They are determined that every student will achieve their potential and their dedication is second to none!”
Although many students performed incredibly well, there were some excellent individual performances with 10% of the cohort actually achieving 9 or more Grade 7s or above! Indeed Eirian Davies, Hannah Murdoch and Jessica Prime actually achieved 11 or more GCSEs each with virtually every grade at least a Grade 8 and 20 Grade 9s between them!
