GCSE Congratulations - 20 August 2015 - Mr Long

Congratulations to all our students on their success at GCSE this summer. Overall, results were strong and show an upward trend in many subjects and against most headline indicators. We were particularly pleased with the performance of students in the Baccalaureate subjects. In English 82% of students achieved an A*-C whilst in Maths it was 80%- a significant improvement on recent years. Meanwhile in the Sciences, 80% of students entered achieved two A*-C grades and in French and German it was 93%. History and Geography were strong performers too, achieving an A*-C pass rate of 79% and 78% respectively. Furthermore both these subjects recorded some of our highest grades with 41% of History students and 39% of Geography entries achieving an A* or A grade. Another highlight was the achievement of those students who took ICT GCSE where 100% of them achieved an A*-C with an impressive 63% of them gaining an A*-A.

There were, of course many excellent performances by individual students and I would like once again to congratulate each and every one of our students on their exam success. Well done!

Remember, enrolment to Appleton College sixth form is on Wednesday 26th August between 10am -1 pm. We look forward to seeing you then.


Students at Appleton College can celebrate another strong set of A level results. I am delighted that all the hard work our students put in has paid off. There are a number of outstanding performances by individual students and across the college we have seen an overall increase in achievement. On behalf of all the staff here I want to congratulate each and every one of our students and wish them all the best for the future.

Overall Appleton College saw an improvement in the percentage of students achieving the coveted A* grade whilst there was a significant increase in the number of students gaining grades A-B as well. Theo Lambrianides, Assistant Headteacher was also delighted: “I am so proud of what our students have achieved. They were a fantastic year group and worked really hard so they genuinely deserve this success. I am also really glad that so many of our students have been able to secure places at their first choice University, including Cambridge”.

Individual highlights include Helen Barker, Sally Jenkinson and Chris Winterburn who all achieved two A*s and 2 As. Helen secured a place at Queens College Cambridge, whilst Sally will be taking up a place at Jesus College Cambridge. Meanwhile Chris will be heading off to Birmingham University.

Other high achieving students include: Sam Dickson A* A A B, Lydia Hinde A A B B, Natasha Kinnesh  A* A A C ,Rachel Pickering  A* A  B B, Jessica Foreman and Elyse Shepherd who gained  A A B.
