A spokesperson for Sturminster Newton High School (SNHS) congratulated SNHS students on their GCSE results: ‘Despite two years of disruption and school closure, students have performed magnificently and showed true resilience and determination.
These are the first GCSE exams for two years and the government has told schools that grades will be deliberately lower than in previous years, as they attempt to get outcomes in line with 2019 results. Given this fact and the very difficult circumstances over the last two years, students have performed magnificently and should be massively proud of their results.
With so many tremendous achievements, it is difficult to pick out individuals but particular congratulations to:
- Sofia Sutton (seven Grade 9s, three Grade 8s),
- Ellie Mitchell (two Grade 9s, two Grade 8s, six Grade 7s),
- Luke Alford (four Grade 9s, one Grade 8, two Grade 7s)
- Alex Sharpe (six Grade 8s, two Grade 7s, one Grade 6 and a Merit)
- Beth Saunders (five Grade 8s, two Grade 7s and a Distinction).
‘These are spectacular and well-deserved achievements for our students and we are extremely proud of them.
‘A huge well done to them and thanks to all the teachers and parents who have worked so hard to support, encourage and motivate them over the last two disrupted years.
‘We wish all the students the best for their next steps.’
