GCSE success – Wrekin College

14 May 2020

Challenge Grades.

Results in the core subjects of English and Science this year were particularly impressive. In all the individual sciences, every single pupil got a good pass (5 and above), while in English almost 45 per cent of pupils achieved 9-7 grades – the equivalent of 45 per cent A*-A grades in old money.

Headmaster Mr Firth said: ”Wrekin is a broad church and deliberately so: we seek a diverse community because we believe that this is the only way to prepare pupils for the future that awaits them that is made up of such diversity.

“We are rigged up to stretch and challenge pupils whatever their ability, and we celebrate the personal bests of all pupils whatever that ability. The number who have got their Challenge Grades is what matters and so very many have.

“We have elite sportsmen and women and musicians here who spend half their time out of school, so we create bespoke teaching arrangements for them. We are delighted to work with individual pupils to ensure we help them get the best out their education, and it is great to read their excellent results that have come about through the close collaboration of Wrekin and its individuals.”
