The Senior School at Wisbech Grammar School provides pupils with a wealth of opportunities, both academically and in a range of co-curricular activities. As an independent School, we can go beyond the narrow conﬁnes of the curriculum and do not put a ceiling on learning by rigidly adhering to set speciﬁcations. Education is about ﬁnding an individual’s level – because every pupil is unique. At Wisbech Grammar School, we go beyond ‘teaching to the exam’ – rather we deepen a pupil’s understanding of a subject and enhance their learning by providing a positive and inspiring learning environment in which each child can thrive.
“This has been a gratifying year for GCSEs at Wisbech Grammar School considering the curriculum changes, the move to the new 9-1 and more rigorous grading system. Once again, we are well ahead of the National pass rates overall and at the top end. This is especially pleasing given many of our papers are the more challenging IGCSE qualification. I am incredibly pleased by their achievements, the dedication of the staff and last, but by no means least, the support from parents/guardians” Chris Staley Headmaster
- 50% of the year group achieving top grades in their examinations (A* to B or 9 to 6) which is the same figure as last year’s cohort
- 91% of pupils achieving 9-4 in both English and Maths
- An overall pass rate of 90% (pupils achieving A* to C or 9 to 4)
These results demonstrate that through inspiring teaching, tailoring learning to individual pupil needs, great progress can be made. Many pupils achieved results they would not have thought possible when we began our learning journey. I am proud of everyone associated with these results.”
