The Weald Celebrates Excellent Exam Results
Another year of excellent exam results for the Weald in 2013
The Weald School has achieved yet another year of excellent A Level and GCSE results. This once again raises the already excellent standards that have been set over the past five years. The School would like to congratulate all students and staff who have worked so hard to contribute to individual and school success. The very high expectations that we set for ourselves, to maintain and improve our academic standards, have once again been achieved. This is of credit to all involved.
Whilst so many students have achieved their personal goals there have also been some truly exceptional performances. Grace Wyman and Benedict Welch both achieved a fantastic 11 A* whilst Isabelle Hollander achieved 10A* and 1 A whilst James Colvin achieved 9 A* and 1A. Headteacher Peter Woodman commented “It is really pleasing to see that our results have continued to improve despite the national squeeze on standards. Over a third of entries at GCSE were at A* or A and 92% of students achieved 5 or more GCSEs at A*-C with 68% achieving this including English and Maths. More students than ever have achieved their target grades so we are really pleased that achievements across the whole ability range have been maintained. We are extremely proud of the results our students have achieved. They have put themselves in an excellent position to move onto their next step in education.
