Springwell Community College has celebrated its “greatest ever” GCSE results.

Seventy-five per cent of students achieved five or more A*-C grades, which early indications show is above the national average.

Top performers were:

Lily Martin with 7 A* Grades and 2 A Grades

Lauren White with 6 A* Grades and 3 A Grades, and

Kim Wallace with 5 A* Grades and 4 A Grades

Jack Maxfield with 3 A* Grades and 3 A Grades

This year, some of Springwell’s Year 9s took early entry GCSE Maths and of those taking the exam, 71 per cent achieved a Grade C or above.

Headteacher Steve Goddard said: “The results are a credit to the hard work of the students and their teachers.

“This year has seen us move into our new buildings and staff put in extra effort to ensure that student achievement was not disrupted by the move.”
