Students and staff at Featherstone High School are all delighted with some excellent GCSE results where the 5A*-C figure rose by a massive 10% at a time when the national average remained broadly static. Headteacher, Gerry Wadwa, commented, “these results reflect just how hard students and staff have worked throughout the year to prepare for what is undoubtedly a more challenging national examination system.” He went on to say “we were particularly pleased that those getting passes at the highest A*/A grades also went up by 5% on last year, against the national trend.”
Student Mohan said: “I feel amazing today, but I couldn’t have done it without the support of my teachers and all the extra revision classes the school provided.” On opening her results, Alliyya said: “I’m really happy with my grades and I’m looking forward to starting my A Levels at Featherstone Sixth Form.”
We are celebrating fantastic A Level and BTEC results with many students achieving top grades. The school’s A Level results bucked the national trend with an increase on last year’s figures for top achievers and results significantly above the national average.
Mr Thorley, Head of Sixth Form, said “we were delighted with our outstanding A level and BTEC results. 30% of A Level students secured A*- A, 59% A*- B and 87% A*- C 72%. BTEC results were equally impressive with Distinction*- Distinction 65%, and 92% Distinction*-Merit. There was a 100% pass rate amongst all A Level and BTEC courses.
