Fisher More continues to provide a strong education
Following the release of the 2016 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 continued success of the Mathematics department in which over 70% of pupils achieved the pass mark and beyond. Pupils also enjoyed considerable success in Sociology, French, Spanish, Art & Design, Photography, Performing Arts, PE and Food Technology, where over 70% of pupils entered achieved a pass worthy of note. Once again, we recorded strong figures for our Progress 8 and Ebacc measures - measures that will gain more national prominence next year.
Continuing the school's record of academic excellence, it was wonderful to see 13 pupils achieve five or more A* or A grades. Notable successes include Jerikah Albiso, Liam Cocker and Emily Collins who all achieved 10 A* or A grades. Madison Emmett and Elizabeth Williams should also be congratulated on achieving 9 A* or A grades. Over 46 pupils achieved at least one A* or A grade, and success was enjoyed in most areas of the academic curriculum.
The levels of progress made by our pupils, in a wide 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 efforts this academic year.
