GCSE results - Press Release
Rossett headteacher ‘proud’ of GCSE students
The headteacher of Rossett School, Tim Milburn, has said the school is very proud of all their Year 11 students after GCSE results were announced today.
Sixty-three per cent of students achieved 5 standard passes, including English and Maths.
Nationally grades have returned to pre-pandemic levels, but Mr Milburn and his staff are particularly proud of this cohort given the challenges they have faced in their time at secondary school.
He said: “It’s been lovely to see our students this morning and to hear how well they’ve done. The results they have collected today are a real testament to their resilience, commitment and dedication. Young people have faced unprecedented disruption to their education over the last 3 ½ years but that only makes these results more remarkable.”
Mr Milburn said the majority of students had achieved the grades that would allow them to move on to their choice of sixth form, college or apprenticeship.
Students achieving 7s to 9s across all their subjects were Sam Barker, Arlo Collins, Harry Duffy, Maya Dunmore, Daniel Golding, Danni-Mae Hampson, Robyn Heywood, Henry Hull, George Park, Abbie Ramsden, Adam Taverner and Mariia Sorokina.
Mr Milburn added: “I would like to thank all the parents and staff at Rossett School for their support in helping our students achieve such great results.”
A Level results - Press Release
Rossett head praises students’ achievements
Rossett School’s headteacher has praised the achievements of all their Year 13 students as A Level and BTEC results were released today.
Tim Milburn said 21 per cent of Rossett’s A Level students had gained A* to A grades, with 38 per cent getting grades A* to B. Students had also achieved a 100 per cent pass rate in their BTECs, with 78 per cent graded at Distinction*/Distinction or Merit.
He said: “We’re seeing similar results to those of 2019, which reflects the national picture and is remarkable given what these students have faced over the last 3 ½ years.”
Mr Milburn said the vast majority of students had achieved the grades they needed to pursue their desired next steps either at university, further study elsewhere, or in their chosen professions.
Around 60 per cent of Rossett’s students will be going on to university, studying a range of subjects from STEM and medicine to international business, the arts, languages, journalism and musical theatre.
Fifteen per cent of students, meanwhile, will be pursuing an apprenticeship, while twelve per cent are going into employment. And 13 per cent will be taking a gap year or deferring a university place.
Mr Milburn said: “We are so proud of all our students today. They have shown resilience and versatility in navigating the challenges of the last few years, and their fantastic results are thoroughly deserved.”
Among the outstanding individual results were several students who achieved three or more A* or A grades including
Kenneth Burt who achieved an A* in Maths and Japanese and A grades in Chemistry and Further Maths, as well as an A in Physics AS Level.
Beth Cannings gained As in Biology, Chemistry and Maths, along with an A in an EPQ (Extended Project Qualification, equivalent to half an A Level), cementing her place at Lancaster University to study medicine.
Jamie Tucker is set to read biochemistry at Birmingham University after achieving an A* in Biology and A grades in Chemistry and Maths.
Mr Milburn added: “Thank you to all the parents and families for their incredible support for our students and our school, and also to our wonderful staff who have gone above and beyond to help make these fantastic results possible.”
