GCSE Results 2015/2016
Interim Headteacher of Barlby High School, Tony Rawdin, was “absolutely delighted” for those students who achieved a fantastic set of results. Head Girl, Cassie Somers-Joce, topped the list with an incredible 14 A* grades and one A grade which included maximum marks on all English components. Cassie’s achievements were closely followed by Jonathan Foster, Edward Mellor, Lily Nesbitt, Jonathan Oswald and Jack Wood who all achieved outstanding sets of results.
Jonathan Foster and Jonathan Oswald both scored exceptional marks in Maths which singled them out for national recognition and Ed Mellor also scored 100% on both of his Sociology papers but Mr Rawdin was also quick to focus on individual progress, saying that “many students have worked incredibly hard and made huge progress in their time at the school”. Top of this list comes Tavi Brown and Tom Lee, but their closing in on their success is Georgina Arthur, Freddy Cavell and Jack Paterson.
Having joined the school in January of this year, Mr Rawdin expressed satisfaction that the school was continuing to show improvements at GCSE. “We have been going though a period of change at Barlby so to register an improvement in GCSE results this year is especially pleasing. However, we are eager to do even better and, looking ahead, we are targeting a significant improvement for 2017.”
In terms of specific subjects, Mr Rawdin was quick to point out the success of Further Maths, Science, RE and ICT where attainment at A*-C was 90% or better. Mr Rawdin also added that “students of all abilities did well, especially in some of the practical subjects and I am thrilled that all our students have very definite plans for next year, whether it be Sixth Form, College or an employment based route”.
