Sixth Form Opportunities Evening for September 2020 will be taking place on Thursday November 7th 2019 in Trinity Hall. External students (non-St Laurence) may arrive at either 17:30 or 18:15 for a briefing in Trinity hall with the Director of Sixth Form followed by a tour of the school and the opportunity to speak to staff regarding A’level options.
Students in Y7 and Y12 will be bringing home an order form for the individual school photograph that was taken yesterday by Tempest Photography. If you wish to view a higher quality version of the image, this can be found at www.tempest-orders.co.uk where you can also order your prints or other products. If you prefer not to order online, please return orders in the envelopes provided to student reception by Friday 13th September when we will send any paper orders directly to Tempest.
We are delighted with an excellent set of GCSE results. 88% of our students achieved a Grade 4 or above in English, 83% achieved a Grade 4 or above in Maths and 79% of our students achieved at least a Grade 4 in both English and Maths (equivalent to the old grade C).
We are very proud of the 29 students have achieved 8 or more grades of 7 or above (equivalent to the old A grade) across their subjects, and are equally proud of all those students who achieved well across the grade range and have been able to move on to the next step in their education. Enabling all our students to achieve the best results they can, while encouraging them to develop a wide range of skills, remains one of our key aims, so we are extremely pleased with the progress they have made in their time at St Laurence so far. As well as English and Maths, there have been particularly strong results in the Sciences, Dance and Business Studies.
Many congratulations to all our students, who have worked really hard, with the support of their teachers and families. We look forward to welcoming many of them into our sixth form shortly.
Our 2019 candidates have achieved the best set of grades for years, demonstrating excellent progress. 21 of our students achieved top grades of A or A* in all their subjects and 35% of all our grades were at the top grades of A* or A. 66% of all the grades were at grades A*-B, 87% at grade C or above. The average grade achieved was B.
Particular congratulations are due to the following students for their superb set of grades:
Zoe Champion: A*AAA
Rebekah Huckett A*A*A
Matt Jolly A*A*A*A*
Alden Paige A*A*A*A
Yohanna Yared A*A*A
