Congratulations to our Class of 2017 who have achieved a great set of GCSE results.
Thursdays results day brought tears of joy as students opened their result envelope with their parents and teachers. An impressive 33% of students attained the highest grades of A*/A or equivalent in their subjects.
Particular mention goes to Elise Parkinson, Sam Colman, Dana Liepina and Chris Coupe who made the most progress in their time at Court Fields exceeding many of their targets. John Gilding, Aaron Filler, Bethany Griffin and Bronwyn Cheshire attained the highest grades sweeping an incredible 35 A*/A between them.
We are absolutely delighted for our students who worked incredibly hard with their teachers to achieve their individual best grades. It was wonderful to see so many excited students now knowing that they can go to College with confidence having achieved the grades that they need to be successful in Further Education.
I would like to thank our amazing staff and parents who have supported our students throughout their time at Court Fields and guided them so well through some significant educational changes. The Class of 2017 are the first cohort of students who have tackled the new Maths and English GCSE were they received Grades of 9-1. All other subjects are still on the old system of Grades A* – G.
We wish all of our students every success in the future and look forward to catching up with them in November at our Presentation Evening where they receive their GCSE certificates.
Our Year 7 Steps to Success students took part in the Marshmallow Challenge. Students had to work to together to create the tallest structure they could, using only spaghetti, marshmallows and sticky tape. They had to come up with a design and then problem solve how to create it in the limited time they were given.
Congratulations go to; Oliver Rogers a year 9 student, for his inventive interpretation of the theme, Charley-May McDonald a year 7, who added a creative three dimension element to her cake, Hollie Cullen and Ellie Popplestone, year 8 students for their professional chocolate cakes and Emily Horswell a year 11 for her eye catching Red velvet cake.
The sale of the cakes was extremely popular with students queuing to purchase the creative goodies at break and lunch times; £64 was raised.
Well done and thank you to all students who baked and/or ate cake and a special thank you to Miss Coggins and Mrs Frayling for organising the event.
