Record GCSE achievement
Students at Launceston College achieved excellent results this year, with 58% achieving 5 or more GCSE’s at A*-C grade including English and maths. Students were celebrating at the College on Thursday morning as they received their results.
College Principal, Jack Jackson, commented “These results are testimony to the hard work and talents of the students and the fantastic dedication of the teaching and support staff at the College. This headline figure shows how well our students have performed compared to schools both locally and nationally; we are very proud of them”.
Assistant Principal, Lynsey Slater, commented “This has always been a hardworking year group; they have performed consistently well throughout their time at Launceston College. Our students have worked particularly hard in preparing for these exams, and it is fantastic to see them rewarded with the results they deserve. Students will now be able to move onto to the next stage of their education with pride”.
There were many fantastic individual stories including: James Bate and Sophie Williams both gaining 10A* and 1 A grade, with Karis Winning, Luke Maguire and Miriam Christine all gaining 11 A* or A grades. Our Year 10 cohort have shown considerable promise for the 2015 results, with 10 students gaining C grades or above in AS level creative writing, including Emma Platt, Issy Paul and Callum Hudson gaining an impressive A grade; 2 years before they would have normally sat the qualification.
The College re-opens to students on Thursday 4th September, following sixth form induction for Year 12 on Monday 1st September and for Year 13 on Tuesday 2nd September.
