A STRONG PERFORMANCE

A STRONG PERFORMANCE

Warminster School’s GCSE pupils have completed a summer of exam success by performing strongly in the latest round of GCSE exams.  Amidst a climate of greater academic rigour, Warminster School pupils achieved well above national average in all subjects and achieved the best results the School has had since 2012.

Of particular note is the School’s performance in modern foreign languages, despite a national decline in pupils taking MFL subjects. In Spanish, over 50% of grades were at the top grade A* and almost 70% at grades A* or A, while overall 60% of MFL grades were at A* or A.

Results in mathematics are also pleasing once again, and this year nearly 50% of results were at Levels 9 – 7. Drama followed up excellent A Level results with a strong set of GCSE results, with 50% of pupils achieving a Level 9 or 8.

While many pupils excelled, there were some outstanding individual performances: Mathias Folkesson and Charlie Whelan each achieved four Level 9s, three Level 8s and an A*. Benjamin Pearson also performed well achieving three Level 9s and three Level 8s. Alice Robinson, Madeleine Stocks, Benjamin Austin, Alexander Maclaren, Alfie Dackombe and Thomas Wojtowicz all achieved highly gaining 22 Level 9-8 and 5 A* between them.

Warminster's Headmaster, Mark Mortimer, commented: “As ever, I am delighted that the pupils’ hard work has been rewarded with a strong set of results. The great majority have fulfilled their potential. I am proud of them all, as I am of their teachers, whose commitment and dedication is second to none."
