GCSE Results 2012
Students and staff at Notley High School & Braintree Sixth Form are celebrating today, as students receive the results of their GCSE and other examinations taken this summer.
81% of the Year 11 students achieved 5 or more A*-C grades, with 64% achieving this measure including English and Mathematics. 98% of students achieved 1 or more A*-G grades and there were many outstanding individual achievements across the whole ability range. Leading the highest achievers were Shaleem Ahmed, with 8 A* grades, an A grade and a Distinction in OCR National ICT and April Woulfe with 7 A* and 3 A grades.
Headteacher, Simon Thompson, commented, "Last year our students made a dramatic improvement in GCSE performance on the key measure of 5 or more A*-C grades, including English and mathematics and we are delighted that this year group have sustained that performance. This year our students have also beaten all previous records on the wider measure of 5 or more A*-C grades in any subjects."
"I congratulate every one of them on their success and extend my sincere thanks to governors, staff and parents for their tireless support which has contributed to this success for our students. We look forward to welcoming many of these students back to Braintree Sixth Form, where enrolment begins today, and our best wishes for the future go to those who leave us today to pursue future opportunities elsewhere."
