Gryphon School students are celebrating an incredible set of GCSE results today. 14 students gained 10 or more GCSE grades equivalent to the old A* grade, and 39 gained 5 or more grades at that level.
Headteacher, Nicki Edwards, said ‘I couldn’t be more proud of all of our students. They have battled through three years of disruption in their education and have achieved these amazing results despite all of the challenges. We look forward to welcoming many of them into our Sixth Form, and wish those students going on to apprenticeships and college courses all the very best for their future.
‘I am very grateful for all of the effort put in by our incredible team of staff to support all of our students in enabling them to reach their full potential.’
Head of Year 11, Laura Bucke said ‘The achievements of this year group are a reflection of their resilience and perseverance in the face of adversity throughout their GCSE years. I am proud of each and every one of them.’
Olympia Pudelko – who achieved an amazing 13 Grade 9s – and her friends Sophie Lord and Imogen Kimber said ‘Thank you to all our teachers. We are so proud of everyone and feel shell-shocked!’
Ben Titus is feeling ‘super proud and over-the-moon’ as he joins The Gryphon Sixth Form. As are Barney Griffiths and Liv Bowditch – Barney saying “I am very happy and looking forward to the next steps”. Liv said she was happy and excited to get the grades she needed for her A levels.
