GCSE Results
 
St. Simon Stock Catholic School, Maidstone, achieved an excellent set of G.C.S.E results in the light of the Government changes affecting this summer and with the largest group of students in the School’s history [186 students]. Overall, 72% attained 5 G.C.S.E. grades including English and Mathematics at A*-C for first entry results.
 
97% of students achieved at least 5 G.C.S.E.s and 82% achieved 5 good grades [A*-C]. 91% achieved A*-C in English and 81% in Maths.
 
Notable performances included:
Jack Barnes [8A*/1A], Amy Dowd [6A*/3A], Anureena D’Costs [6A*/2A], Holly Davey [6A*/1A], Rachel Alexandre [5A*/4A], Martin Burstow [5A*/2A], Amber Gibbs [4A*/5A],George Craven [4A8/3A], Laurence Wild [4A*/2A], andClare Woodward [4A*/2A]. Louise Goswell scored 8 grade A, Joseph McDonagh-Brown [1A*/6A] and Marion Guerbet scored 7 grade A.
 
Headteacher, Brendan Wall, commented:
‘I am delighted at these excellent set of results for the fourth time in five years. Students and staff have worked in partnership with supportive parents to achieve excellent results for first entry. Many will continue into the next phase of education with greater confidence in their abilities and better self-esteem to face the new challenges of Level 3 at A level and/or BTEC.
 
For a Comprehensive School to succeed with the largest group of students in our history and perform so well is a challenge to the increasing misnomer that if you don’t get into a Grammar School, your potential to succeed is diminished. These results show that students can succeed with quality teaching, high expectations, a committed and dedicated staff supported by parents, without going to a selective school.’
 

 
Dear Student/Parent
 
I will be in school tomorrow (Friday 21st) from 10:00-12:00 should you wish to see me with any queries.
 
 If you haven’t yet chosen your next step, there’s still time to decide on whether you want to earn, learn, or both.
 
You can get lots of free help and advice from your school, college, the National Careers Service or the National Apprenticeship Service. You need to make your choice by 30 September 2014.

A2 Level and A2 Results
 
St. Simon Stock Catholic School recorded a pleasing set of Advanced level results this year with 100% pass rate and 79% of students achieving three A levels. 33% of entries achieved the top grades of A*-B and 66% of all entries were grade C or higher.
 
The students have done well in a year where examination results were forewarned by the Government to be ‘volatile’. The average point score per student, which is an indicator of the grade achieved, has increased for the fourth consecutive year.
 
We are proud of all the achievements of the students. Some students deserve special mention:
Karen Burstow [3A*], Philip Coatsworth [A*AB], Callie Holliday [AAA], Amy Griffiths [A*AA], Catherine Killackey [AABB], Robert Sawala-Adams [A*AA] and Julia Szczechowicz [ABBC].
 
The AS results for Year 12 students were equally impressive and suggest achievement in 2015 will continue to improve. Domas Dregva [AAAB], Jasmine Jenkins [AAA], Sarah Pattinson [4A], Clara Senior [4A], Grace Tashie-Lewis [AABB] and Ethan Wheeler [AAB] were noteworthy.
 
Brendan Wall, Headteacher, commented:
‘This cohort of students will be remembered not only for their examination results but for their many contributions to the life of the School and local community in the 6th form. In a true Christian Comprehensive School, the academic results play an important part but it is the development of these young people into mature young adults that is our achievement as a School. It is a tribute to them, their parents and their teachers that they have done so well against a background of changes by the Government and Ofqual. We wish them every success for the future in Higher Education, employment or training.’
 

 
Dear Student/Parent
 
Please do not hesitate to contact me if you wish to discuss your results or your plans for next year. I apologise if you were unable to speak to me today to discuss your exam results.
 
Kind Regards
 
Mrs Rodell-Jones
