As you are undoubtedly aware, students sat new GCSEs in English Language, English Literature and Maths for the very first time this year. Not only is the content of the new GCSEs more challenging, the grading format has been amended from letters to numbers – from 9 to 1, with 9 being the top grade. Despite the changes made, 100% of students who took GCSE exams at Stanborough Secondary school achieved five or more A* – C grades, with 93% including Maths and English. The students have worked hard and we are extremely proud of their accomplishments! In all subjects, with the exception of Physics, our students outperformed the national average. These outstanding results reflect the commitment of each student and the dedication of every teacher. I would like to take this opportunity to congratulate our students and thank our staff for successfully managing the challenges of the past two years to produce these superb results!
Students “excelled at Stanborough School, in Stanborough Park, Watford, as 100 per cent of students achieved A* to C”, reported the Watford Observer. “Head girl and president of her class Zahra Bharwani smiled from ear to ear as she discovered she got all A*s in everything apart from Business. She said: ‘I’m very happy, as I got the results I wanted.’ Assistant head teacher Eileen Hussey could barely contain her delight at her students’ results. She said: ‘I’m absolutely delighted, as both the students and staff have worked really hard to get such fantastic results.’”
