Students and staff at schools in Northwood and Pinner have been celebrating GCSE results which were published this morning (Thursday).
Northwood School students (pictured) are celebrating another set of outstanding results.
With many students out-performing their targets, there was a flood of top grades and some stunning individual performances. Amongst the high flyers was Paul Larbi who achieved a stunning nine grade 9s.
He said: “I am so delighted with my results and I can’t thank the teachers enough for all the support they’ve given me. Northwood is a fantastic school. They really care about every student. With these grades I feel I can do anything!”
Mark Anderson, headteacher, commented, “I am so happy for the students. None of this would have happened without the hard work and dedication of the students themselves, combined with the unstinting support they’ve had from their teachers and parents. I am proud of each and every student.”
Mr Anderson added: “Though the changes to this year’s GCSE exam mean results cannot be compared with those of previous years, I am delighted how staff and students have responded to the demands of these more challenging GCSEs. Once again it looks as though our students will have made significantly better progress than students nationally.”
Meanwhile Nower Hill School in Pinner has also congratulated its students.
75 per cent achieved a 9-4 (previously A*-C) in English and Maths, 29 per cent of all grades were 9-7 or A*/A and 79 per cent of all grades were 9-4 or A*-C. 35 children achieved 9 or more 9-7 / A*-C grades.
Chris Livesey, Headteacher, said: “Once again we are delighted with this year’s excellent set of results. The students have worked very hard and should feel very proud of themselves as we certainly are of them. No doubt they would want to join me in thanking their teachers and other staff for all the support they have been given over the years”.
