Warminster School’s GCSE pupils have completed a summer of exam success by performing strongly in the latest round of GCSE exams.  Against a climate of increased rigour, Warminster School pupils achieved well above national average in all subjects.

Of particular note is the School’s performance in Modern Foreign Languages, despite a national decline in pupils taking MFL subjects. In Spanish, 50% of grades were at the top grades 9 or 8 and nearly 70% of results at grades 9, 8 or 7. In general, over 70% of MFL grades were at grades 9, 8 or 7.

Results in the Arts (Art, Drama and Music) are also pleasing where the School has seen continual improvement and this year nearly 50% of results were at grades 9 – 7. Likewise, Religious Studies saw 2 in every 3 grades achieving grade 9 – 7.  

While many pupils exceeded expectations, there were some outstanding individual performances: Ander Bañuelos Aramburu achieved five grade 9’s, two grade 8’s and an A* in Further Maths amongst his nine GCSEs. Thea Knight also performed very well with four grade 9’s and three grade 8’s. Sean Montgomery, Lilly Scholz, Charlotte Robinson, Robert Nagel, Abigail Craven-Smith, Archie Fogg and Edward Vickery all achieved highly gaining 26 grade 9-8 awards between them.

We look forward to welcoming back our many talented Year 11 pupils who will now start the A Level or International Baccalaureate Programme at Warminster.

Deputy Head, Mark Sully, commented “I am very proud of the pupils who have received their results today. In most cases, they have fulfilled their potential and have been rewarded for their dedication and hard work. I am particularly delighted with the outcomes for the pupils in light of the recent step up in academic rigour for all subjects.”
