ST Edmund’s College & Prep School, Ware, is pleased to announce an excellent set of GCSE results. Year 11 pupils secured an admirable collection of grades with 84% awarded at 9-5 (A*- B) and 47% at 9-7 (A*- A). These results follow the school’s recent success in A Level examinations and reinforce St Edmund’s place as a leading education provider for pupils living in Hertfordshire and beyond.
This year, St Edmund’s pupils delivered particularly strong performances in individual science subjects. Grades 9-7 (A* – A) were achieved by 88% of pupils studying Biology; 75% of pupils taking Chemistry; and 83% of pupils studying Physics. There were also exceptional results in language subjects, specifically German and Italian.
Matthew Mostyn, Headmaster at St Edmund’s College, said: “At St Edmund’s we take immense pride in our ability to consistently deliver exceptional results across all levels of education. Returning to pre-pandemic grading standards was never going to be easy for pupils, but we are incredibly proud of their achievements, and look forward to welcoming them back in September to continue their studies in our Sixth Form.”
St Edmund’s is committed to providing an environment that fosters academic excellence and personal growth, and prepares pupils for success, personally and professionally. Teaching at the school is underpinned by the High Performance Learning (HPL) framework. Embraced by a growing number of world leading schools, HPL blends a focus on academic confidence and attainment with the development of robust personal values, attitudes, and attributes to educate students as a whole. The result – for pupils studying at St Edmund’s – is an intellectual, physical, emotional and spiritual education that creates self-assured individuals, who are kind and caring as well as astute problem-solvers and strategic thinkers.
