GCSE success for students at Ark William Parker
Ark William Parker students are celebrating great GCSE results.
Ark William Parker Principal, Stephanie Newman said “This is a good set of results for our students. Our results have improved on last year with the percentage of A* to B grades rising significantly year on year. This demonstrates the hard work of the boys and all those that supported them. To see the students reap the benefits of their efforts is highly rewarding for everyone involved.”
This year, the English and Maths GCSE results use the new attainment grade with 9 being the highest.
Among Ark William Parker’s strongest performers in this year’s GCSEs were:
Matthew Andrews achieved 1 x 9, 1 x 7, 3 x A*, 3 x A. He hopes to become a Lawyer and has his sights set on the top universities and would like to go to an Oxbridge university. He said, “I can’t thank my teachers enough. I really wouldn't have been as confident in my exams without them all.
I was nervous when I woke up this morning. I’m pleasantly surprised with my results and I feel quite overwhelmed and a little shaky.”
Noah Palombo achieved 1 x 9, 1 x 9 6 x A*, 1 x A and said “I was terrified this morning but now I’m really happy and excited; I’m ecstatic! My results are better than expected and I’m going to stay on at Ark 6th Form to do my A Levels.”
Liam Papuha achieved 1 x 7, 1 x 6, 1 x A*, 5 x A, 1 x B and said “I felt nervous but I’m pretty satisfied with my results.”
Callum Potter achieved 2 x 7, 1 x A*, 2 x A and 4 x B and said “This morning I was nervous but I found it helpful being accompanied by my friends. After opening my results I’m really happy because it acts as confirmation that my hard work paid off. I was relieved to finish school but now even more relieved to achieve the grades I needed.”
Another top performer Kelland O’Reilly achieved 1 x 8, 1 x 6, 1 x A*, 4 x A, 2 x B.
