STAFF and students at Midhurst Rother College are celebrating a tremendous set of GCSE results.
Some 52 per cent of Midhurst Rother College (MRC) students achieved five or more A*-C including English and maths.
Particularly pleasing were the increased number of students who achieved a high number of A/A* grades, including Lucy Van Zwanenberg, who got 11 A’s, Joe Casebow, William Keohane, and Peter Thomas who all got ten A’s, Sebastian Barrett and Matthew Ray with nine A’s, Kate Adams and Sarah Kane who both got eight A’s, and Matilda Chatwood, Elena Escalera, Emily Hillier, Piers Lunt, Jamie Salter who all got seven A grades.
Dr Joe Vitagliano, Principal of MRC, said: “We are delighted with the increase in the number of students who obtained the top GCSE grades.
“This achievement places these individuals in an excellent position when applying for top universities in the future.
“Whilst the context of public examinations has changed in recent years, Midhurst Rother College has not been complacent in its drive for the best student outcomes.
“As a result of obtaining such excellent GCSE grades more students continue to join our Sixth Form this coming September, and a higher number will start on A Level courses that will eventually see them going to top universities and high quality employment.
“I offer sincere thanks to our students for their hard work and determination, and also express gratitude to our teachers and support staff for their invaluable role in achieving such pleasing outcomes. Taken with last week’s A Level results the college is set on a good course for the future.”
