Bishop Vesey’s Grammar School is celebrating the successes of students in their GCSE examination results.
Outstanding results included Suleiman Ahmed, Daniel Bartlett, Harry Dowen and Rajveer Chauhan who all attained 10 grade 9s. Suleiman, Daniel and Harry also scored the top grade in the FMSQ Additional Mathematics qualification.
Other results of note included Ben Cheema, Oli Chudleigh, Tighe Crook, Joshua Franks, Matthew Merrill and Dominic Van Loan, who all attained 9 grade 9s and a grade 8.
Other students were praised for how they have balanced their commitments over the last 2 years. One brilliant example is Winston Powell, who managed to combine GB gymnastics squad training with attaining 6 grade 9s and three grade 8s.
This year, following the cancellation of exams, grades were awarded through a process of teacher-assessed grades, against a national standard. These grades were quality assured and approved by the exam boards. The government is not publishing performance data for any schools or colleges this year due to the varying impact of the pandemic.
Dominic Robson, Headteacher of Bishop Vesey’s Grammar School said: “We are immensely proud of all the hard work and achievements of our students, especially after such an unprecedentedly difficult and disrupted year. Our teachers have worked tirelessly to ensure students are all able to make good progress academically.
“It is to the credit of our amazing students that they have shown such impressive levels of maturity and good humour in these turbulent times. It will be exciting to see how they progress as they move on to their chosen post 16 courses.
“The students have been very well supported by our outstanding KS4 pastoral team led by Mr Bowen, Mr Bousfield and Mrs Hodkinson. We wish Mr Bowen and Mr Bousfield the very best as they move on to new roles this September as Headmaster of Camp Hill Boys and Assistant Headteacher of Newcastle Under Lyme School respectively.”
