Pupils of the Stamford Endowed Schools are celebrating their GCSE results with a quarter of every examination taken being graded at the very highest A* grade and over half of examinations taken being awarded A* or A.

The percentage of pupils gaining five or more GCSEs at Grade C or above was 98 per cent at Stamford High School and 94 per cent at Stamford School.

Principal of the Stamford Endowed Schools Will Phelan said: “I am incredibly proud of our Stamfordians and staff. I know that they have worked tirelessly for these examinations and I congratulate them on this significant achievement. These results are a testament to our students’ graft, their determination, careful preparation, parental support and the Schools’ outstanding and experienced teachers. When considered alongside the engagement of our students and their huge contribution and representation in so many other areas of school life, this shining success is even brighter. This has given our students the perfect springboard to thrive in the sixth form and I look forward to further success at A-level.”

Vicky Buckman, Head of Stamford High School, said: “The girls worked very hard in preparation for their examinations and deserve these tremendous results. In addition to their studies they find time to contribute to the School, and the wider community, in so many different ways and I am so proud of all they have achieved.”

There have been many outstanding individual performances and, as ever, there is as much delight in the many boys who have outperformed their own predicted grades and personal targets. Well done to all.”
