Students at The Webber Independent School performed extremely well across all subjects, with stand-out results in Chemistry, Physics, English, Maths, French, Italian, Spanish, History, Music and Physical Education, where 100% of students gained A* to C/9 to 4 grades. With the top three students achieving thirty A*to A/9 to 8 grades between them.
Charlie deGorter found good reason to smile about the number nine, he achieved a hat trick in English Language, English Literature and Maths, in addition to five A* grades and three A grades (including further Maths). “I can’t quite believe it! Three nines in the new grading system, wow – I’m blown away. I’m so happy, and I can’t thank my teachers enough for their support in preparing me for the new style GCSEs in English and Maths. I’m now off to celebrate with a big cooked breakfast.”
Mrs deGorter said: “I am delighted that my son has done so well. Webber has been a fantastic school for Charlie, which is reflected in his results.”
Robert Beilby also joined Charlie at the top of the class with a nine in English Language, eight in English Literature and nine in Maths, in addition to five A* grades and three A grades (including further Maths). “I’m shocked! I’m so happy and I can’t stop smiling. I so pleased with my results.”
Mrs Beilby said: “I am so proud of Robert – such amazing results – thank you to all the staff at Webber Independent School that have supported and encouraged Robert to reach his full potential.”
Speaking about the School’s performance, Headmistress, Hilary Marsden said:
