Tears of joy at King Edward this morning as students find out their GCSE results

Students Celebrate at King Edward VII

A very emotional day at the college today for students and staff as youngsters find out their GCSE results. For a large percentage of our youngsters, this has been a very happy occasion, with students, parents  and staff celebrating together two years of hard work and unreserved commitment which have led to record breaking results. Here are some of the school results compared to national averages.

We are extremely proud of all our students to whom we would like to say a very well done. We would also like to thank the parents and carers for their support all along the way. Here are some outstanding success stories that we would like to share with you:

Eden P got 6A* and 3 A. An outstanding student, highly articulate and with a passion for learning, Eden will be carrying on in our 6th form and intends to apply to Cambridge University to study Genetics.

Oliver B is one of the very few people in the country to have got the coveted A^ in Further Maths, which is better than A* and is recognition of outstanding achievement in this highly academic subject. Alongside this, Oliver has got 3A*, 3A and a B. An amazing outcome, thoroughly deserved, as Oliver is one of the most hard working and courteous youngsters we had the pleasure to teach.

For Dan M it was a very joyful occasion, as he opened his envelope to find out that he has got 4A* and 4A in his GCSE. He is very science orientated and he dreams of being a dentist one day.

Lauren M celebrated her 4A*, 3A and 1B and she will continue her studies at the college. She praised her teachers  for their guidance and the extra revision sessions.

There were tears of joy for Victoria Y who achieved 7A* and will move on to study Performing Arts at a theatre school to pursue her dream of being an actress. Well done to her, she will be missed.

Former Principal, Mr Melvin was delighted to hear the news of the students' success and couldn't resist a quick visit to celebrate with the principal, Ms Byrne.  "We are delighted, but not surprised by the outstanding achievement across a range of subjects.  This is a culmination of hard work across the high schools and at King Edward VII to ensure that students are motivated and happy in order to achieve their best."
