All GCSE pupils at Marshland High School have secured either post-16 placements or apprenticeships following a great set of results.
Almost three quarters achieved Grade Four and above in both English and Maths with 57 per cent picking up Grade Five and above in both subjects.
Headteacher, Craig Jansen, expressed his delight today in the achievements of students at Marshland High School.
“Our students and staff worked incredibly hard to prepare for the GCSE examinations this summer,” he said.
“It is regrettable that the current COVID-19 crisis prevented our students from sitting their exams but we are confident that their results today reflect the efforts and the outcomes they would have achieved under normal circumstances.
“We should all feel proud and value their GCSE achievements.”
Oliver Swann and Katie Smith were the school’s highest achievers, and they will be studying A Levels at Springwood.
