Will, BBC Young Chorister of the Year 2019 and excellent musician, achieved an outstanding 12 grade 9 GCSEs – only one of thirteen pupils in the whole country to have done so, according to data released by Ofqual – having opted for additional qualifications in Further Maths and Greek.   

Talented Alex also achieved 12 GCSEs, 11 grade 9s and 1 grade 7, whilst representing the school in rugby, hockey and singing in the choir. Oliver was awarded 11 grade 9s and also represents the school in rugby and hockey.

Overall, 15 pupils achieved a clean sweep of ten or more GCSEs at grades 9 to 8. A further 23 pupils received ten or more GCSEs at grades 9 to 7.  

Head teacher Jeremy Walker said:

Congratulations to our fantastic Fifth Form. I am incredibly proud of everything they have achieved over these challenging years. Their continuing resilience, positivity, and commitment to all aspects of school life, makes their achievements even more special, and worthy of celebration.

I am also very grateful to my dedicated colleagues, who provide inspirational teaching and unwavering support for our pupils. It has also been a challenging time for parents and the way they have supported their children and St Peter’s has been much appreciated as we have tackled the last two years as a strong community.
