GCSE Results 2015
Selby High School’s Year 11 cohort of 228 students is celebrating after topping last year’s record results despite the continued uncertainty of the GCSE examinations within the current educational climate.
Headteacher Mr Paul Eckersley paid tribute to, “The hard work of students and staff in producing results which saw students continue to thrive and set new records by improving on last year’s results. In addition, students continued to meet our extremely challenging targets with regards to the top grades of A*-A!”
He went on to say, “I was delighted to see our continued outstanding success in mathematics with 82% A*-C and further mathematics results of 89% A*-C. Moreover, sixteen students went on to achieve an AS Level in Statistics as a result of an even higher course of study. English Language also impressed with 95% A*-C and English Literature 97% A*-C. Additionally, our science results were once again incredibly strong with Biology achieving 91% A*-C, Chemistry 97% A*-C and Physics 98% A*-C. Equal recognition should be given to the fabulous performance of individual students, some of which are highlighted below in respect of the number of A and A* grades they each were awarded.”
