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 uncertainty following two difficult years, Warminster pupils achieved well above national average in all subjects.

Of note is the School’s performance in STEM subjects, in particular Computer Science where nearly two in every three grades achieved were grades 9-7 and in Physics where nearly half of the grades were awarded at grades 9-7.

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

These fantastic results stand out as some of the best in the last ten 'normal' examination years with the highest pass rate and percentage of grades 9-7 achieved since 2010.

While many pupils exceeded expectations, there were some outstanding individual performances: Sunny Yang achieved nine grade 9’s and one grade 8 and Katja Lindblom also performed extremely well with seven grade 9’s. Guinevere Maggs, Tom Campbell-Barnard, Georgia Dalgliesh and Tia Smye each achieved at least six grade 9/8's.

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.

Headmaster, Matt Williams commented: “Our Year 11 pupils have rounded off this year's public examination series in some style, with some of the School's best results since 2010. Given the huge disruption and difficulties they have faced over the two years, the fact they have done so well is testament to their resilience and strength; we are so proud of them all. Teaching staff have also been forced to work in very trying circumstances and therefore these results also pay tribute to their professionalism, skill, and dedication to the pupils. We all recognise that a Warminster education is about far more than just examination results, but it is heartening to see that academic rigour continues to be a key part of our offer.”
