Solihull Editorial 24th Aug, 2017 Updated: 24th Aug, 2017   0

ARDEN students are celebrating a strong set of GCSE results.

Once again almost 100 per cent of pupils gained passes, with nearly 85 per cent achieving grades 9 to 4 (or A to C) in English and maths.

And the total A grade (or equivalent) results once again exceeded the national average, with over 35 per cent of papers graded A* to A ( or equivalent).

Over six per cent of students achieved the new grade 9 result across maths and English, with ten per cent of English literature papers receiving the top mark – three times above the national average.

Among the top achievers were – Caitlin Hubbard, Kathryn Mackiewicz, Miranda Vaughan, Lucy Jones and Samuel Jones who all gained at least 6 A* or As (and the equivalent maths and English marks) in every one of their 10 GCSE subjects.

Headteacher Martin Muprhy described the results as ‘outstanding’ and ‘truly remarkable’.
