Records broken at Manor School
The number of students achieving five strong passes in their GCSEs, including English and maths, has significantly increased for the third year in a row. The number of Manor School students achieving the very top grades in English and maths has also reached a new high for the second consecutive year. Many subjects performed exceptionally well, in particular English literature and English language, all three modern foreign languages, music and further maths.
Jay Davenport, Principal, said “We are delighted to be able to share in the successes of our students, both in terms of progress and attainment. I’m excited and looking forward to working with so many next year in our growing Sixth Form provision. These results are testament to the hard work and dedication of our students. Alongside this I’d like to recognise the commitment of staff, parents and carers and thank them for their support.”
Stand out student performances worthy of recognition include Lucy Kirbyshire who achieved four grade 9s in science and English, as well as three grade 8s and three grade 7s in her other subjects. Izabel Turiccki and Finn Smith both gained ten GCSEs all at grade 7 or above, including five grade 9s. Izabel’s grade 9s were in maths, English and science, whilst Finn achieved his grade 9s in the sciences, religious education and maths.
Chris Hill, CEO of the Nene Education Trust, commented “These results show that Manor School continues to go from strength to strength, year on year. The significant increase in the number of students continuing their studies in the Sixth Form at Manor School is reflective of the culture of high expectations and rigour in learning that exists in the school”.
