Delight for phenomenal WGS Pupils on GCSE Results day

12th August 21

High-achieving pupils at Wisbech Grammar School are celebrating their GCSE results this morning.

Headmaster, Mr Chris Staley, said: “There is so much to celebrate given the disruption and unpredictability of the past two years and pupils and all the staff involved should be congratulated on such a remarkable effort.  There is a great deal to be proud of and the results represent the fruits of the labour (pupils and staff) over a sustained and disjointed period of time.  It is now time to move on to the next stage.

The overall pass rate is just short of 100% (grade 9 to 4) and exemplifies the fantastic relationship that exists between every teacher and every pupil at WGS.  These results also provide the clear evidence of the success of our blended teaching and learning approach throughout the entirety of the pandemic where some lessons have been in school and others were very quickly moved to being online.

There have been a great number pupils today who have received exceptional grades and the delight was clearly palpable when they opened their emails and envelopes this morning.  Most notably are the 2 pupils who managed to secure a full suite of 9s in their 9 GCSEs- quite simply a phenomenal all round achievement.  According to government data released this morning, there are approximately 3000 pupils across the country that managed to do this and two are pupils at WGS… amazing.”
