GCSE results 2019

They have done it again … best results ever at Sir Thomas Boteler Church of England High School.

High Expectations, High Aspirations and High Standards have again paid off again this year at Sir Thomas Boteler Church of England High School2018 was, at the time, their ‘best ever’ year, but they have now beaten those results with 2019 being their ‘best ever year, especially in terms of attainment in the majority of subjects.

Headteacher Mrs Scott-Herron commented: “We are so proud of all our Year 11 students and the grades they have achieved have been through commitment, hard work and dedication to everything we believe in our school. We are a family  The Boteler Family, we know our students so well and have been on every step of their journey with them. Now we can celebrate. 20% of the cohort have achieved five or more grade 9-7 (old A**– A) which is really significant. With 8 of those students achieving 10 or more grade 9-7.

8 of our curriculum areas achieved 100% pass rate (grade 4 plus)

We have had many outstanding individual performances this year in both attainment and progress, which is just phenomenal. One of our students who has performed exceptionally well was our Head Girl Lois Smith who achieved 10 grade 9’s (A** equivalent). Other students who have outstanding results are: Josh Waldron, Rowan Cooke, Samantha Lawrie, Josh Gosney, Emily Bull, Daniel King, Jordan Leech and these are only to name but a few.

We are also extremely proud of our Designated Provision students who sat their exams this year and they have surpassed all expectations and come away with some great vocational qualifications. 5 out of the 6 vocational areas achieved a 100% pass rate.

I could not be more proud of our Class of 2019, as they really did succeed in their academic achievementtheir personal conduct and professional outlook. We have had to work so hard to improve expectations, aspirations and standards from where we were in September 2014; our driver being improving the life chances of all our students. Sustainable improvement takes time and this is veryevident in our results. The immeasurable progress that has been observed by so many external visitors to our school is now there for all to see and importantly is now visible in our GCSE results. We are the ‘The Boteler Family’ and everyone in our organisation counts All our students have all embraced our vision and live it through their daily practice.  ‘High Expectations, High Aspirations and High Standards’ are the key to our success and really do matter.  The Class of 2019 and the staff have put this mantra into practice and succeeded and to see so many happy students who will now be able to follow their dreams, is everything you could hope for as a Headteacher.
