GCSE results: Another week of great results for The Bishop's Stortford High School students
Three boys at The Bishop’s Stortford High School scored nine GCSE passes at the highest possible grade as the Year 11 cohort of 2019-20 picked up their results on Thursday.
Elliot Wood achieved a full house of 9s in his nine subjects while Malachai Jacobs and William Worthy matched that and added an 8 in their 10th subjects.
Headteacher Dale Reeve said: “We've known for many years that this was an extremely well-motivated and hard-working year group and these excellent results are a true reflection of both their ability and their attitude towards their studies.
"Not only did they throw themselves fully into the extra-curricular side of school life, but they were also fully engaged during lessons and have reaped the benefits of such dedication to their academic work.
"To some extent, the removal of the examination season robbed them of their chance to show just what they were capable of, but the results they have achieved paint an accurate picture.
"Whether they have individually collected lots of grade 8s and 9s, as so many have, or worked hard to meet the entry requirements for next year’s courses, the combined success of this cohort is so richly deserved. I am thrilled for them and am really looking forward to working with so many of them in our sixth form in September.
"Huge thanks must go to the whole staff for helping them achieve such great outcomes, in particular their head of year, Ross Wheatley, inclusion manager Tina Cooper and the team of Year 11 tutors, who each provided first-class support for the boys.”
