GCSE: Cromwell Community College, Chatteris, scores another impressive set of results to the delight of the principal

JED Roberts, the principal of Cromwell Community College, Chatteris, has a vision of his school being judged outstanding and he hopes today’s GCSE results will help towards it.

The school is praising the academic success of pupils who helped Cromwell achieve a total of 55 per cent success in students getting 5 A*-C passes including English and Maths. All told 80 per cent of students achieved 5 A*-C overall.

Cromwell is also delighted with the fact 99.5 per cent of its pupils have achieved five passes at GCSE.

The principal believes today’s figures “are a good set of results by any standards”.

Mr Roberts singled out Keelan Adams, Kirsty Biggs, Sophie Bunting, Cherry Cooke, Molly Eastoll, Jessica Goodman, Shannon Herbert, Anna Skorobogatova and Katrina Youlton for special praise as they all obtained at least 8 A* or A grades.

He added: “Last, but very definitely not least, special congratulations goes to Gabrielle Rabemananjara who achieved one distinction and A* grades in all of her other subjects.

“Well done to all concerned, thank you to all the parents who have supported us over the past five years and best wishes for the future.”
