150 Year 13 students from St Peter’s received their results today and the school was celebrating another year of improved outcomes.
Mr David Todd, Headteacher, who retires this year, writes, “I would like to congratulate our students and staff on the excellent results this year which continue our trend of year on year improvement. The proportion of grades awarded A or equivalent and above this year is 22% (up 2% on last year), for B grades and above it is 51% (up 2%), and C and above is 75% (up 1%). We expect our value added score, which measures the progress students make between GCSE and A Level, to be positive again as it has been every year since the DfE altered the methodology 3 years ago.”
Mr Ben Doyle, who has been appointed as the new Headteacher stated, “I feel immensely privileged to be taking over the leadership of this great school which is blessed with an incredibly gifted body of students who are inspired by such dedicated and skilled staff. These results are testament to the strong ethos and work ethic we have here at St Peter’s.”
The Head of Sixth Form, Mr James Wilder, commented, “Yet again we are exceptionally proud to see so many tremendous success stories amongst our Year 13 students. Teachers and students have worked together so successfully over the past two years and these fantastic results are a reflection of the wonderful culture of determination and collaboration that exists in our Sixth Form. Congratulations to everyone involved and we look forward to hearing how our students have developed at their universities, apprenticeships and places of work in the coming years.”
