Despite the incessant downpour of rain, St Michael’s Catholic High School students’ spirits were not dampened as they collected their GCSE results from the school this morning.
The overwhelming majority of students achieved grades between 9 – 5 in their GCSE exams or equivalent including English and Maths, a remarkable achievement when considering the challenging two years and disruption to education that students have had due to the pandemic.
Sisters Kylie and Kirsty Osuji (pictured with their family above) were amongst a cohort of buzzing students celebrating their results. The Osuji girls both received numerous 8s and 9s across multiple subjects (1 being the lowest score and 9 the highest).
Headteacher Edward Conway said: “We are delighted with the excellent GCSE and VTQ results achieved by our students that demonstrate their outstanding effort over the past two years which have been unprecedented due to the COVID-19 pandemic. These results show the commitment of our students towards their studies in difficult circumstances. They have all been amazing and deserve their success. We are very proud of them and wish them happiness and success in their futures with the majority remaining in our excellent Sixth Form or going to college.
Numerous students did exceptionally well achieving 9+ GCSE’s all between 9 – 7.
Mr Conway added: “Their results reflect the endeavour and commitment that each student displayed regarding their studies. Furthermore, we are grateful to our excellent staff for their continued effort and dedication towards our students. Without our brilliant teachers and support staff these outstanding results would not have been possible.”
