Many students at Weydon School matched, and even exceeded pre-pandemic 2019 results.
And 42 per cent of Year 11 students at the Farnham secondary achieved the top grades 7-9 in five or more subjects and 52 students achieved ten GCSEs at grade 7-9.
These results are definitely well-deserved. Often the students started revision classes at 7.30am and some were still in school revising until 6pm.
Furthermore, both the boys and girls’ performances at Weydon were equal and impressive, despite the notable widening of the gender gap up and down the country.
Oliver Warnock achieved an impressive set of results, getting three 9s in maths, biology, and physics, and three 8s in business, chemistry, and further maths.
He is now excited to continue his studies at RGS in Guildford and furthering his mathematical achievements.
“I really enjoyed my time at Weydon and I think maths is definitely something I want to continue doing in the future.”
Similarly, Katie Walker was delighted with her grades, gaining a much awaited 8 in business. She is now looking forward to starting her further education at The Sixth Form College Farnborough.
Principal Jackie Sharman commented on the brilliant results, saying: “The Year 11 of 2023 should be so proud of what they have achieved. They showed that anything is possible if you work hard and believe you can.
"The staff have worked tirelessly to ensure that the students were ready for their examinations and this hard work has paid off.
"We will look back on the cohort of 2023 extremely fondly and we wish them all the best for their next exciting chapter; go and do great things!”
