Thursday 22nd August saw our class of 2019 collect their GCSE Results. Particular highlights for this year’s results are:
· 83% of students gained 5 or more GCSE passes (equivalent to the old A*-C grades)
· Over a fifth of students gained 5 or more grades 9-7 (equivalent to the old A/A* grade)
· 19 students gained 9 or more 9-7 grades
· 73% of students gained a pass in both English and Maths
Our highest achiever, Amelie Harris-Lovett, was awarded 11 GCSE or equivalents including 9 qualifications at the highest grades possible, Jenna Dymond achieved 5 9s, 1 D*, 2 8s and a 7 and Katie Edwards gained 6 9s, 2 8s and a 7! Amber, Summer, Lucy, Emily and Matilda also did outstandingly well.
Ben Evans walked away with 10 excellent GCSE which included 6 at grade 9 & 2 at grade 8, with Robin Howard, George Wiltshire, Max Hudson & Pat Van Hoorn not far behind him with 4 or 5 9s and a handful of 8s each, along with Jack, Finlay and Taryn who all also excelled and leave secondary school with 9 or more 9-7 grade GCSE to their names (equivalent to the old A/A* grade).
Many other students were delighted with the results they received and saw the fruits of their hard work open the necessary doors to their future plans. Most students are really looking forward to starting work on their A level courses or chosen career paths at Truro or Cornwall College next month.
Mr Mulcahy, Headteacher, said:
‘We are delighted with our GCSE results for 2019. This is the result of 5 years’ hard work by students, supported by a wonderful staff team who always go the extra mile to support.
On behalf of staff and governors at Richard Lander School, may I congratulate our students on achieving such good grades. Students should look forward with real confidence to college or work which lie ahead. We wish them all the very best success and happiness for the future.’
