Press Release: Lacon Achieves Inspiring GCSE Results

We are happy to announce that, once again, students at Lacon Childe School have achieved tremendous GCSE results and they can be extremely proud of their achievements. Through their hard work and the commitment and dedication of our teachers, Lacon Childe has, once again, maintained its excellent tradition in achieving the highest standards of attainment.

Due to the volatility in the system and the changes that have been made to the assessment of GCSEs this year it is impossible to compare our results with previous years. The new GCSEs in English and Maths have been designed to be tougher and have provided a greater challenge for staff and students alike.

63% of our students achieved 5 or more standard passes at GCSE including English and Maths. Our fantastic English Department has maintained the highest of standards with 75% of students achieving a ‘strong’ level 5 pass and 87% getting a level 4+.

Our results in Science, Geography, French (100% pass A*-C), German, Textiles, Performing Arts and Philosophy and Ethics are outstanding.

A special mention must go to Eartha Kruft-Welton for achieving a Level 9 in Maths, which is more remarkable as she is a Year 9 pupil.

Students at all levels have achieved fabulous results and can look forward to moving on to the next stage of their learning journey with confidence.

Top achieving students are:

Holly Rennel 2 x 9, 5 A*, 1 A

Abi Griffiths 2 x 9 and 3 A*

Maisie Porter 1 x 9, 2 A*, 3 A and 1 x 7

Jacob Tennant 2 A*, 2 A and 1 x 8

Our other high attaining students are Gemma Booton, Sophie Cavenagh, Megan Davies, Sophie Derricutt. Orla Evans, T Feng, Connor Galliard, Daisy Griffiths, Lucy Joliffe, Olive Kelly, Ellie Phelps and Paul Wilson. Their success will be highlighted on our high-achievers’ banner.

The students’ achievements are down to the engagement and enthusiasm they have had for their subjects and the sheer hard work they and their teachers put into studying and revising. We are very proud of them and wish them the very best in whatever they do next year.
