A ‘fantastic set’ of GCSE results at the Peele Community College in Long Sutton is testament to the ‘hard work, resilience and exceptional efforts’ of its students.
Delighted head teacher Elizabeth Smith also heaped praise on staff, parents and carers.
She said: “The college’s significantly improved results are a tribute to the dedication of our staff, parents and carers – a real testament of the college’s ‘capacity for improvement’ (Ofsted report March 2016).
“We are particularly pleased with the progress students have made across the majority of subjects, including: Modern Foreign Languages (76 per cent A*-C), English Language (75.49 per cent A*-C), Mathematics (70.29 per cent A*-C) and Science (65.22 per cent A*-C). We will build on this success by continuing with what has been the college’s major focus – ensuring every student makes excellent progress, regardless of his/her level of ability and certainly accept the challenge to achieve success.
“I am excited about the college’s future and my focus is clear – ensuring the college continues to deliver the highest standard of education.”
