Excellent GCSE Results
Congratulations to all GCSE students on their excellent results!
75% gained 5 GCSE's A*-C
The Mosslands School is celebrating its best ever GCSE results with over 57% achieving 5 A*-C GCSE’s including English and Mathematics with 75% of students gaining 5 or more GCSE’s A*-C.
Headteacher Mark Rodaway commented: “I am delighted with these results, which are testimony to the hard work and effort of our students, their parents and all the staff at the school. In 2009 OFSTED highlighted that we were a rapidly improving school. Since 2006 we have improved our headline figure of 5A*-C with English and Mathematics by over 23%. We focus on preparing our students for future employability ensuring that virtually every student leaves the school with a qualification in literacy and numeracy. Over 97% of our students gained 5 GCSE’s A*-G.”
A number of students achieved the highest grade at GCSE level of an A*. These included:
The Mosslands School provides opportunities for students to develop their interests and skills irrespective of age. A number of students achieved GCSE passes in Year 8, 9 and 10. George Rogers in Year 8 achieved a pass grade in Astronomy, a subject taken by the most able Mathematicians in Years 10 and 11, and Elliot Morgan, Year 8, gained a B grade in GCSE Spanish.
Anne McArdle, Chair of Governors, said “The Mosslands School has a long tradition of educating the whole person. These results have exceeded the targets we set this year group. The Governors of the school pass on their congratulations to all students and staff.”
