Press Statement GCSE results Summer 2017

William de Ferrers best GCSE results ever

Once again, William de Ferrers is celebrating the wonderful successes of our students who continue to achieve exceptional results at GCSE. At the morning of the GCSE results, the sense of happiness and excitement was overwhelming as so many young people exceeded their expectations and were overjoyed at having a range of opportunities as they embark on their next stage of education or training.


Mr Applewhite, Acting Headteacher said:

“Our students have had a phenomenal summer with an impressive number of outstanding performances from individuals and departments. 84% of students achieved level 4+ (equivalent to C+) in English and when combined with the number of students awarded 4+ in maths, has resulted in our best ever performance - and way above the national averages.

Well done also to the many students who achieved the new gold-star level 9 in English and maths.

This has been an exceptional summer. We are delighted to serve our community and provide the students with a first class education which is reflected in both the A level and GCSE results this year.”

Students achieving remarkable successes with at least 3 A* (including 8 or 9) grades at GCSE include:

Henry Allan, Beatriz Amaral Melo, Ellie Belton, Zoe Bone, Alicia Cash, Sophie Goodman, Hannah Gosling, Connie Jones, Christopher Mead, Abbie Milsom, Charlie Wiffen and Diana Willats with Amy Holden and Estelle Smith both achieving an incredible 7 A* grades.


Our students have achieved wonderful results and we look forward to welcoming many of them back into our thriving sixth form.
