Gateways pupils, parents and staff are celebrating after once again, achieving excellent GCSE results. Over a third of pupils achieved a full set of results in the 9 – 7 grade range and almost two thirds of all grades were also awarded in this range.
Special congratulation go to Lottie Swales and Leila Adamson who achieved a clean sweep of all grade 9s!
Languages at Gateways go from strength to strength as all grades for German, Italian and Latin were graded 7 or above. This was also the case for Further Mathematics and Photography which demonstrates the breadth of the successful curriculum at the school.
Headmistress, Dr Tracy Johnson commented;
“As a non-academically selective school these results are incredible given, not only the challenge presented to us by COVID 19, but the fact that there were an unusually large number of this year group requiring additional support.
Gateways is quite simply able to bring the best out of all of its pupils regardless of any barriers to learning that they may have and this is testimony to our excellent teaching and our average class size at GCSE of just 9 pupils. Class sizes like these ensure that every pupil gets a huge amount of teacher time to fulfil their potential and this is evidenced in our excellent results today which extend right across the ability range.
I am incredibly proud of each and every one of the pupils today and am hugely grateful to all of the staff at Gateways for helping them to achieve this level of success.”
