Head girl, Nadine Lomax and head boy, Charles Ross-Macpherson were amongst the top ten highest achievers at Hartshill School in Nuneaton as GCSE exam results were revealed.
Charles secured results at Grade 8 across the board, and a Distinction* in Business Studies while Nadine achieved multiple results at Grade 7 and an A grade in Psychology.
A number of students achieved the highest possible grade of 9, as the new grading system for GCSEs (from 9 - 1) was rolled out across all subjects. Radostin Barakov-Trankov achieved a Grade 9 for physics, Ethan Jennings for maths, Holly Johnson for English, and Erin Husband and James Dewell for Art.
Principal of Hartshill School, Michelle Oliphant said, “GCSE results have become much tougher against a background of continuing changes to the grading system and a more challenging national environment.
“Achieving well at GCSE, especially in the core subjects of maths and English, is so important to students’ future progress. Our teachers have set high expectations of all our students and they are consistently supported to achieve the best possible grades.
“Many congratulations to our students who have received their results today, we wish them the best of luck for their futures.”
Head girl, Nadine Lomax said, “I am very happy with my GCSE results and most proud of my science grades because I worked really hard. I leave the school with fond memories and look forward to moving on to St Thomas More to study maths, biology, physics, and chemistry.”
The school’s head boy, Charles Ross-Macpherson said, “I am proud of my Grade 8s and really miss school, especially my maths lessons! I am looking forward to studying for A Levels in maths, physics and psychology at Higham Lane School.”
Student Jared Norton was delighted to get the grades he needed to join a Level 3 Business programme at North Warwickshire and South Leicestershire College. He had been concerned about changes to the grading system but was pleasantly surprised to find that he had achieved his maths and English together with passes in other subjects.
