Bishop's Stortford High School GCSEs: 'A fine bunch of young men who have worked really hard and thoroughly deserve such great results'
Students at The Bishop's Stortford High School focused on success despite the uncertainties they have faced during their GCSE courses – and reaped the rewards on Thursday (August 12).
Robin Munday achieved nine grade 9s – the highest – and an 8 while Rohan Rana got eight 9s and two 8s and five more boys secured seven 9s.
Head at the London Road secondary Dale Reeve said: "It's clearly been a very challenging two years for this GCSE cohort and it's great to see the boys achieving excellent recognition for the hard work they've sustained throughout the course.
"These excellent results are a true reflection of both their ability and their attitude towards their studies and they should be extremely proud of their success. They've coped with much uncertainty and disruption but managed to remain focused and keep working hard to the very end.
"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, they are to be congratulated.
"Aside from achieving great academic success, so many of these students have been heavily involved in our extra-curricular programme, which has also brought them much success. I'm thrilled for the boys and am really looking forward to working with so many of them in our sixth form in September."

Mr Reeve said: "Huge thanks must go to the whole staff for helping them achieve such great outcomes, in particular their head of year, Dr Alex Coke-Woods, inclusion manager Tina Cooper and the team of Year 11 tutors, who each provided excellent support for the boys."
Dr Coke-Woods said: "I'm really proud of what these boys have achieved. They've been a fine bunch of young men who have worked really hard and thoroughly deserve such great results. I wish them all the very best of luck in their future endeavours and am delighted that so many have chosen to stay on in our sixth form."
