Record Year for GCSE Results at Cressex!
Students and staff at Cressex Community School are celebrating an outstanding set of GCSE results. 65% of the students achieved five or more “standard” passes (equivalent to C or above) including English and Maths – well above the school’s previous best figure and 21% higher than last year. Results in English were especially impressive, with 70% gaining a “good” pass.
Headteacher David Hood said: “To have performed so well in the first year of exams that the government says are ‘tough’ is testimony to the excellent teamworking in the school. Very well done to all of the students and staff who have worked so hard together to bring this about. We are also absolutely delighted that a number of students have gained the new very challenging top grade 9 in English and Maths.”
While the great majority of students did exceptionally well, the standout performer was Ana Dumitru with 2 grade 9s, 1 grade 8, 5 grade A*s and 1 grade A. Especially impressive results were also recorded by: Sahmia Ahmed, Ahmed Al-Kannak, Leah Butler, Shazaib Choudhry, Alys Eley, Keifal Hakil, Auwais Hussain, Taiyub Hussain, Amy Hykin, Fatima Iqbal, Patryk Jonca, Maryam Miah, Afshan Qureshi, James Rouse and Rebeca Teban.
