Prior Park College is once again celebrating some tremendous GCSE results, scoring a 95% pass rate on Grades 9-4 with all students achieving a minimum of five or more passes.
Under the new numerical 9-1 grading system, students will need to have performed “exceptionally” to attain a grade 9. High achievers at Prior this year include Thomas Nesbit, Gabriella Doel, Tom Watkinson, Madeleine Robertson and Vincent Wang.
Departments performed well across the board with particular mentions for Drama, Latin, English, MFL, Science and DT, with many subjects achieving a 100% pass rate.
The College’s new Headmaster, Mr Ben Horan, commented: “It has been a pleasure to be here today to see and meet so many happy students and parents. I’d like to congratulate them and our teaching staff on an excellent set of results. We have some remarkable pupils and we are proud of them and their achievements. I look forward to welcoming our returning students to Sixth Form in September.”
