Best ever GCSE results at The Birkenhead Park School
22 August 2019
Students at The Birkenhead Park School celebrated the best GCSE results ever achieved at the school.
Great success was seen in most subject areas, with standout grades in the core subjects of Maths and English.
A record number of students received a grade 5 or more in Maths and English with Maths actually leading the way in terms of progress, while French results continue to be higher than the national average. Music and PE are also among the stand-out subjects.
The results come as the school recently redefined it’s values and ethos, with all its processes and strategies being dedicated to positivity, ambition, resilience and thoughtfulness. Unique ‘Character’ lessons have also been introduced, where students are prepared for the world outside academia, learn the value of their contributions to society and set themselves goals to aim for in life.
Dylan Thomas topped the individual performances with an incredible set of results, including 8s in English Literature and French and a 7 in Maths.
He said: “I feel amazing looking at these results. I want to go onto study Business and Economics at Birkenhead Sixth Form College and eventually open my own business.”
Two more students picking up their results were Kaci and Malisse who both did exceptionally well.
Malisse said: “I am so excited that my results mean I can continue my education and study Health and Social Care alongside Maths. I feel over the moon with how well I have done and all of my hard work has finally paid off!”
Headteacher at The Birkenhead Park School, Mrs Johnson, said: “The results that have been achieved by the Class of 2019 are evidence of the hard work that all of our students have put in, not just across the two GCSE years but since joining us in Year 7. They have demonstrated our core values of positivity, ambition, resilience and thoughtfulness in all that they did, even when it was challenging; perhaps especially when it was challenging.”
Mrs Johnson continued: “We are proud of our students’ achievements and recognise that this is due to a great deal of hard work put in, not just by the students themselves but by the teachers and staff at the school, working in partnership with parents. This year’s students leave us with a very special place in our hearts.”
