GCSE results St Andrew’s awaits final grades

STUDENTS at St Andrew’s School in Worthing were eager to claim their GCSE results today (Thursday).

Delays in confirming figures meant overall pass rates were not yet available, but early signs looked promising.

Victoria Purcell, deputy head of the school said: “It has been another successful year for St Andrew’s and we are incredibly proud of all our students’ achievements.

Both our staff and boys are dedicated and hard working which reflects on the results for 2012.

We are still awaiting one examination board to confirm our science results due to an error on their behalf.

However, with Mathematics rising again for the third year and English remaining stable, despite national concerns over the marking of this subject, indications are our overall results A*-C, will be very pleasing.”

Cameron Hughes, 16, from Worthing was delighted with his achievement of gaining 10 grades between A*-C. He said: “The exams went really well and I had a lot of support.”
