Oakmeeds Community College at Burgess Hill bucked the national trend with great success in its science results.
Students produced a pass rate way above the country’s average as reported in the media.
Head teacher Colin Taylor said of the students’ general performance: “We congratulate all the students who have worked tirelessly and been rewarded with good sets of results, equipping them for the next stage in their education or workplace training.”
“All the early indications are that English results may not reach last year’s levels, a situation predicted by the Association of School and College Leaders who say that making meaningful comparisons year-on-year is now not practicable.
“In common with other schools, we are still finalising the overall results collation. This has been hampered by technical difficulties at two exam boards and our management software provider”.
Among students in celebration mood were Jarvis Baker – 13 GCSEs (A*-C); Tasmin Islam (13.5); Nicki Martin (14.5); Rory Pughe-Morgan (14); Hanna Richardson (14.5); Aaron Roxburgh (14); Hannah Short (13); Katie Tebrook (13); Jake Tennant (13); brother and sister Tim Tomsett (13), Katie Tomsett (13); Matthew Waller (14); Imogen Wilson (13); Robert Wilson (14).
Anthony Snape, the Assistant Head Teacher in charge of Key Stage 4 said: ““I am thrilled that so many students did so well.
Our congratulations to all the students for their hard work and achievement.”
