GCSE RESULTS: A record year for Cromwell Community College, Chatteris
THIS year’s GCSE results at Cromwell Community College, Chatteris, are the best the school has achieved in its history.
In total, 62 per cent of students achieved five A*-C grades, including English and maths, surpassing the school’s previous best by 12 per cent.
Principal Jed Roberts said: “This is a tremendous achievement and surpasses the target set by the local authority by more than four per cent.
“The old benchmark figure for 5x A*-C GCSE passes also shows a significant rise of 20 per cent over the 2010 record, taking the college to almost 80 per cent of our Year 11 pupils leaving with five or more higher grade passes.”
Three pupils achieved 9 or more A* or A grades - Leanne Robinson, James Surtees and Megan Hall.
