Westbourne pupils are celebrating a bumper crop of GCSE results this week, with 97% of Year 11 gaining at least 5 A*- C passes, and 90% gaining 5 A*- C passes including Maths & English.
74% of the whole cohort achieved grade B - A**.
The new, more challenging specifications in Maths and English have not stood in the way of our pupils' success, with 14 out of 30 pupils gaining an 8 (A*) or 9 (A**) grade in at least one of these core subjects. Two thirds of all Maths grades were 7 or above (A, A*, A**), and 74% of all grades achieved by our top scholars were at these levels. 10% of all Maths and English were at level 9 (A**).
We are a non-selective school and are immensely proud of all our pupils' achievements at all grades - they will now move on to Sixth Forms and Higher Education courses across Sheffield and beyond. Special congratulations are due to Anjali Ashok, who achieved 5 A* grades and a grade 9 in Maths, William Shahane (5 A* and grade 8 in Maths & English), Joseph Strike (2 A* and grade 9 in Maths & English), Morley Goulding (3 A* and grade 8 in Maths), William Stevenson (3 A* and grade 8 in Maths) and Morgan Kenny (2 A* and grade 9 in both English Language & Literature).
