Following the release of the 2017 GCSE results, Ss John Fisher and Thomas More R.C. High School continues to provide a strong education in a large number of subject areas for all its pupils.
The school is delighted to report the commendable performance of the English and Mathematics departments: pupils in the core subjects delivered impressive results in the face of new and more challenging examinations. 71% of pupils achieved a grade 4 or above in English, with a similar percentage of pupils achieving the good pass in Mathematics. Our pupils also enjoyed considerable success in RE, French, Drama and PE.
With English and Mathematics now being assessed on the new 1-9 grading system, it was pleasing to see 4 pupils achieve the very highest levels, putting themselves in the top 3% of pupils in the country. Josh Whatley, Aiza Bukhari and Emily Brown proved their worth in English, whilst Head Boy, Ishmaeel Iqbal, achieved the well-deserved grade of 9 in both English and Mathematics. We are also pleased to report the strong and notable success of Carl Atherton, Stefan Ference, Abigail Irons, Jade Davison, Emily Shapland, Daniel Murphy and Onnalin Meakin. 44 pupils in total achieved the top grades in one subject or more.
Fisher More is also pleased to report the success of the pupils supported by our SEN department, who made remarkable progress over their five years at Fisher More.
In an ever-changing educational environment, we are proud to report our school’s continued record of academic excellence. The levels of progress made by our pupils, in a strong and varied curriculum continues to be a strong feature of our school where we allow the bright colours of all our pupils, irrespective of ability, to shine. We would like to thank all our pupils, staff, parents and governors for their industry and effort this academic year.
