STUDENTS AT WEBBER INDEPENDENT REACH NEW HEIGHTS

24 August 2017

92.3% of students achieved 9 to 4 (A* to C) grades in five or more subjects including English and Maths, up an impressive 17% on last year’s GCSE results

Students at The Webber Independent School performed extremely well across all subjects, with stand-out results in Chemistry, Physics, English, Maths, French, Italian, Spanish, History, Music and Physical Education, where 100% of students gained 9 to 4 (A* to C) grades. With our top three students achieving thirty 9 to 8 (A*-A) grades between them.

Charlie deGorter found good reason to smile about the number nine, he achieved a hat trick in English Language, English Literature and Maths, in addition to five A* grades and three A grades (including further Maths). “I can’t quite believe it! Three nines in the new grading system, wow – I’m blown away. I’m so happy, and I can’t thank my teachers enough for their support in preparing me for the new style GCSEs in English and Maths. I’m now off to celebrate with a big cooked breakfast.”

Mrs deGorter, said: “I am delighted that Charlie has done so well. Webber has been a fantastic school for Charlie, which is reflected in his results.”

Robert Beilby also joined Charlie at the top of the class with a nine in English Language, eight in English Literature and nine in Maths, in addition to five A* grades and three A grades (including further Maths). “I’m shocked! I’m so happy and I can’t stop smiling. I so pleased with my results.”

Mrs Beilby, said: “I am so proud of Robert – such amazing results – thank you to all the staff at Webber Independent School that have supported and encouraged Robert to reach his full potential.”  

Speaking about the School’s performance, Headmistress, Hilary Marsden said:

“Our students have worked their socks off and they should be very proud of their individual performances.

“I couldn’t be happier with the amazing results our students have achieved, with 21% obtaining 9 to 8 (A*) grades and 92.3% achieving 9 to 4 (A* to C) grades in five or more subjects including Maths and English. The results will give our young people the best opportunities and choices for their future education and career paths.”

Mrs Marsden continued: “I am very pleased with our strong performance in STEM subjects, which is a testimony to our teaching staff for their relentless commitment to helping our students achieve their full potential, and our students for their hard work and focus.”
