Prior Park is celebrating strong GCSE results after a challenging year for our U5 students. 100% of students were awarded 5 or more GCSEs, with 65% graded 9-7. Strong subjects, those with a high percentage of 9/8 grades include French (78%), Classical Civilisation (75%), Drama (64%) and Chemistry (62%). A special mention must go to one of our international student’s, Abdulaziz, who took twelve subjects and was awarded the highest mark in eleven subjects, with a grade 8 in his twelfth.
Headmaster, Mr Horan, commented: “We are thrilled with the outstanding results our GCSE students achieved this year. These students sat several sets of rigorous examinations over the past 12 months, and these grades are a testament to their hard work over each of those examination cycles. Perhaps the most reassuring aspect of this whole process is just how well prepared this set of students are for their Sixth Form studies. In contrast to the tales of the pandemic’s ‘lost generation’, this year group at Prior have hardly missed a beat since last March, and are well set to take their A Levels and BTEC courses by storm. We can’t wait to see them thrive as Sixth Formers.”
