Students celebrating GCSE success at St Mary's Catholic School have helped make history at the 122-year-old Bishop's Stortford secondary, with one pupil scoring a clean sweep of nine top grades.

GCSE attainment last year at Windhill was in the top 8% nationally, and this year’s cohort has set a new school record for provisional value added, placing the secondary in the highest bracket for progress and value added.

The students scored 9s across all subjects – including one with nine 9s, an achievement which puts him in the top 0.002% in the country. He is returning to St Mary’s to join the sixth form and will study maths, further maths and physics.

Head Andrew Celano said: “To break school records in consecutive years at A-level and GCSE reflects the dedication and talent of our students, underpinned by huge support from our parents and the wider community.

“Success is measured in many ways; we value the full development of all at St Mary’s but there is no doubt that these academic results are a highly important indicator of excellence.

“In addition, I would like to single out and praise the skill of our amazing teaching and support staff. I am sure pupils and parents would be the first to acknowledge the support and skills of the teaching and support team here.

“With £5.1m invested in new school buildings – brand new science labs now fully operational and 10 new classrooms being opened from September – we are determined to maintain and improve the opportunities for students.”
