12:45pm Thursday 22nd August 2013 in News
It was all about progress at Helston Community College where students picked up their GCSEs after five years of hard work.
A total of 82 per cent of students achieved five A* to C grades, but it was the improvements that had been made from when the student arrived to today that stood out for the college.
Almost a third made more progress than expected in English, with 39 per cent achieving more than had been expected in maths.
The school said: “The overall progress made by students across their best eight subjects was outstanding. All this means that, compared with their attainment levels on entry to the college five years ago, students have done very well indeed and out-performed expectation.”
Among the top performing students were Georgia Higgs (9A*), Milly Grant (8A*, 1 distinction*), Emily Gusterson (7A*, 1 distinction*, 1 A), Ella McDonald (8A*, 1A), Robyn Hill (6A*, 3A), Jack Connolly (2A*, 4 distinction*, 3A), Jade Hilton (1A*, 5 distinction*, 2A), Brook Hocking (5A*, 3A), Daniel Cook (1A*, 4 distinction*, 3A) and Hannah Jones (3A*, 2 distinction*, 2A).
