In a year of tougher exams and GCSE grading reform, Conyers School is once again celebrating huge success with its GCSE exam results.
Stockton Youth MP, Maisy Best, was amongst 42 other students who achieved 5 or more A*/A/8/9 grades, achieving 9 A*/As or equivalent.
The new GCSE reforms may mean that schools are unable to make comparisons with previous years’ results, but what was still clear for all to see, were the many outstanding individual success stories, which this year included Anna Thorp who achieved 13A*s and a grade 7, 8 and 9.
They were joined by Aaron Bell, Sandeep Bhandal, Emily Brown, Amelia Burns, Millie Cooper, Tegan Downes, Thea Emmerson, Katie Gill, Alicia Hunton, Annabel Jupp, Annabelle Kennaugh, Daniel Magnone, Thomas Magnone, Luke Pettit, Kari Roberts, Ben Rooney, Georgia Smith, Lauren Spence, Jennifer Szulc, Ellis Tearney, Amy Wilson and Elle Wilson, all of whom achieved 8 or more A*/A/grade 7/8/9.
Inspirational student, Joshua Finegan, who suffers from Asperger Syndrome, has overcome a number of personal challenges during his time at Conyers to achieve an excellent set of exam results, which also highlight his fantastic musical talent, with an A in Music and a Grade 6 in Rock and Pop Bass.
Conyers Head teacher Louise Spellman said “These wonderful results contain many stories of individual success and students achieving excellence at a time of great change in education.”
“We are delighted for all students who have achieved their target grades and look forward to welcoming many back into sixth form in September. I would like to thank the staff who have shown dedication and who have worked tirelessly to ensure every student had the best chance of success. Parents also deserve thanks from our students for their patience, support and kindness.”
