Stanborough Secondary School continues to demonstrate significant progress on its journey to delivering educational excellence for its students. This years’ GCSE results shows that it is being established as the school for parents seeking to maximise the potential of their children.
In the last academic year, 94% of Stanborough students taking the GCSE exams achieved 5A* – C, with a return of 88% including Maths and English.
This compares favourably with the much vaunted selective schools in the area matching and surpassing their results. Our results are significantly better than the national average of 69%.
We are immensely proud of our all our students, and commend them for their effort and dedication during their time at the school. Their results reflect this fact. Mention in despatches must go to two of our students who returned phenomenal results. Eve Papaioannou and Paul Cooper excelled, with Eve receiving 11 A*’s and 1 A, and Paul receiving 5 A*’s and 6 A’s.
The Stanborough staff have seen their efforts reap dividends as 100% of our students achieved A*- C in Biology, French and History. We also received 100% in Greek, Portuguese, and Latin, which are extra-curricular subjects undertaken by students. 92% achieved A*- C in Business & Communication Systems and 90% achieved A*- C in Geography.
We recognise and appreciate the hard work undertaken by staff, the Board of Governors, our parents and the church in supporting the school. However, special mention must be made of the Head Teacher Lorraine Dion and the BUC Education Director Anne Pilmoor.
We are immensely proud of our school and our achievements this year, and trust that you too are proud of your school.
We look forward to your continued support as we strive to fulfil our motto “Ever Higher” in this coming year.
