Altwood students celebrate record GCSE results
Celebrations were in full swing today at Altwood Church of England School in Maidenhead, when students received their GCSE results. This year saw the school achieve their best ever set of GCSE results with 63.1 per cent of students achieving 5A*-C grades including English and maths. 87.7 per cent of students achieved A*-C in English whilst 69.2 per cent achieved the same level in maths.
In the past three years, the school has gone through a period of incredible change, and these results have further cemented the fact that the school is heading in a very positive direction.
Headteacher Neil Dimbleby commented, “I am incredibly proud of our students for these spectacular results; all their hard work has certainly paid off! A huge amount of credit is also due to our dedicated teachers who have worked closely with all students over the past 12 months to ensure they achieved their own personal goals. My congratulations go to the students and my gratitude to the teachers and parents who have supported them so well in their preparations for these examinations. We look forward to seeing them flourish further in our Sixth Form.”
