After a year of home learning and disruption to education, students up and down the country received their GCSE results today (Thursday, August 12).
Among those were year 11 pupils at Pinner High School, who achieved their first set of GCSE results. Pupils and teachers were delighted that over half of GCSE grades issued were seven or above.
Headteacher Chris Woof said: “Today is a day of celebration for Pinner High School’s Trailblazers. Their GCSE results are absolutely stellar and a testament to their dedication, hard work, and general brilliance.
“They are a very special group of young people and today’s results will open doors for them for the rest of their lives. Setting up a new school requires an optimistic outlook and Pinner High School thrives on this positivity.
“To see this reflected in such glorious grades for our first results is a cause for significant celebration. It is a whole community effort. We owe immense thanks to an utterly wonderful group of very talented staff, to the other schools in Harrow for their unwavering support, to Governors, Trustees and the Pinner High parents for their faith in our school. Our students have done exceptionally well.
“Over half of all grades across all 23 subject areas are a 7 or above, which is extraordinary. Congratulations Trailblazers!”
Earlier this year, Pinner High School was one of eight schools across the country to be shortlisted for the TES Secondary School of the year award from over 4,000 eligible schools and is the most oversubscribed school in Harrow.
Rudra Shah and Talhat Al Jibawi both achieved an extraordinary 10 grades 9s and one grade 8. Rudra said: “I joined Pinner High School as a Trailblazer, as a Year 7 student five years ago. I chose Pinner High School based on the values embraced by the school, which inspired me to want to learn here. Since then, I have never looked back!”
Talhat added: “I joined Pinner High in Year 8 and have been part of the remarkable growth and success the school has had over the last few years.
“Pinner High offered a fresh environment as well as modern practices to support the student, and this dynamic ultimately led to us choosing Pinner High School.”
