Abbey College proud of remarkable GCSE achievements

Students and staff at Abbey College are glowing with pride after receiving their GCSE results today.

Andy Christoforou, Headteacher at Abbey College, said: “We are incredibly proud of our students for their dedication and perseverance leading up to their outstanding results today.

“While the exams were sat under more usual conditions, we must not forget the significant disruption these students have faced during their secondary education. After completing Year 7, the pandemic forced most students to complete their learning away from schools as the country battled the challenges of COVID-19.

“These are truly remarkable results, especially given this context, and are a testament to the hard work they have put in over the past few years. We look forward to seeing many of them returning to our brand new Sixth Form, Ramsey Gatehouse Sixth Form, in September.

“The tireless efforts of our excellent teaching and support staff should also be recognised. They have all worked above and beyond to help students secure these excellent results.”

Strong results were secured across the whole curriculum, including GCSEs in Maths, English Literature, Biology, Physics, Chemistry, French, Art, and Physical Education. Vocational courses in Music and Business Studies also secured high grades, with an average grade of a Distinction.

Individual successes at Abbey College include:

  • Year 11 student, Isabelle, achieved 11 Grade 9s and one Grade 8.
  • Annabelle McCabe achieved 9 Grade 9s and 3 Grade 8s.
  • Taylor Foss achieved five Grade 9s and 4 Grade 8s, as well as a Level 2 Distinction.
  • Travis Lindsay achieved 6 Grade 9s and 3 Grade 8s, as well as a Level 2 Distinction* and a Level 2 Distinction.
