Prince William School is celebrating its success with GCSE results this year.
With a number of results still to come in and using the English and Maths measure, the school has moved back to achieving above the national five A* to C including English and Maths result.
Early analysis shows that on average, students achieved a third of a grade higher than what would be expected in similar schools.
So far, approximately one in every five grades is a grade A* or A with many outstanding performances, including:
- Tristian Phipps, nine A* grades
- Emily Greenwood, nine A* grades
- Daniel Hicks, nine A* & one A grades
- Philippa Money, seven A* & two A grades
- William Bird, six A* & three A grades
Until other school results are known, the improved results could be one of the largest in the county.
This improvement has happened with many major changes taking place at the same time, including becoming a full 11-18 secondary school with more than 25 quality teaching staff joining, significantly improving the school site through ICT and buildings development, moving to academy status with EMLC and and introducing a new uniform.
Headteacher Mark Taitt said: “The students and staff have worked extremely hard pulling out all the stops.
“These results and our superb A-level results show that with a common purpose and drive you can achieve great things, best of luck to them.
“I’m looking forward to our students joining us for their sixth form studies to continue their success story.”
