Wokingham GCSE results: Emmbrook School
August 31, 2012
There were screams of happiness at The Emmbrook School as pupils achieved record GCSE results.
More than 68 per cent of the 208 pupils who sat the exams achieved at least five A* to C grades including maths and English, up three per cent on last year.
Headteacher Nigel Matthias said: “These results mean the great majority of students can now progress with their plans.
“Across the thousands of examination entries there was not a single fail grade. This is an exceptional statistic.”
He added: “I am delighted the students and staff have secured such good results – they reflect the hard work and the partnership which characterises the school.”
Ollie Johnson, from Wokingham, was one of the top achievers with seven A*s and four A grades.
He said: “I was a bit surprised but I’m relieved it’s all finely over.
“I’m going to stay here for sixth form and study maths, further maths, music and physics as I want to go to music college.”
Lauren Barrett, from Emmbrook, achieved A to D grades in her exams. She said: “I’m really pleased with and A in drama as I was predicted a B.” Lauren plans to study English literature and language, theatre, media and business studies at A-level.
Casey Ward, from Finchampstead, received A and B grades to secure her place to study child care at Bracknell & Wokingham College. She said: “I got up at 7.30am. I got ready quickly for once.”
