Norton College celebrates another year’s brilliant results!
Students, staff and families celebrated another strong set of results at Norton College as 66% of the year group secured at least grade 4s in both English and maths. Encouragingly, over half the year group also secured at least a new grade 5 in either English or maths. Almost 80% of students secured a grade 4 in English.
Simon Carson, Senior Deputy Head, said, “The students believed they could do it and worked hard to achieve this along with a talented and dedicated staff. We could not be more pleased for them.
It was exciting to see some children secure the new A** grade 9 in a range of subjects. These grades are reserved for only 3% of all children in the country. A special mention should go to Cassia Edwards who secured five grade 9s and five grade 8s.”
Neil Fryirs, Progress Leader for Year 11, summed up the feelings of the teachers by saying, “We are so proud of all the students’ achievements. In a world of change the students have coped brilliantly. This shows their resilience and hard work over the two years of their studies at GCSE.”
Phil Loftus, Headteacher, commented, “Students faced a tougher challenge this year with GCSE subjects having more challenging content and no coursework element. However, this is yet another strong performance from the Class of 2018. Over two thirds of the year group achieved at least 5 GCSEs at grades 9 to 4. The progress of students of all abilities is, once again, really pleasing. These results will give students the opportunity to progress to the Sixth Form or start a career of their choice and once again it is mission accomplished for all at Norton College”.
