Wetherby Senior announces another strong set of GCSE results – the school’s third set of results since it first opened its doors in September 2015

Seth Bolderow, Headmaster, said: “The uncertainty that has surrounded this examination period has been very unsettling for boys and their parents. I am, therefore, particularly pleased that the system has recognised the boys’ hard work over the last two years. I have been so impressed by their positivity and resilience and look forward to welcoming them back knowing they are well positioned for their onward transition into the Sixth Form.”

Based on the results received:

  • 30% of all grades awarded are the top grade (9).
  • 76% of all grades received by the Year 11 are 9-7; half of all grades are 9-8.
  • 2 pupils achieved nine grade 9s; 3 pupils achieved ten 9s; 2 pupils achieved eleven 9s.

 


A Level Results 2020

17th August 20

Wetherby Senior announces the school’s first ever set of A Level results. 2020 is a pivotal year in the school’s development with the first intake of students being awarded their A Level results. Based on the results received this morning, we are proud to report that 58 % of entries were graded A* or A and 85% A*-B. A quarter of the year group were awarded all A* and As with 3 boys gaining 3 A*s, 2 gaining 4 A*s and around half of these ‘pioneer’ students gained at least 1 A* grade. The success of the boys also demonstrated the strength of the academic departments with the top grades being achieved in all subjects.

Seth Bolderow, Headmaster of Wetherby Senior commented, ‘I and all the teachers and staff are so proud of our ‘pioneer’ boys and their achievements at A Level. For 58% of the boys to achieve A* or A is testament to their determination and hard work while also being fantastic ambassadors for the values of the school. Speaking to the boys this morning, we could sense their excitement about taking up the fantastic university offers as they move on to the next stage in their education.’

Following these results boys will be moving on to top universities in this country and abroad, reflecting the international nature of the cohort. The majority of the boys are joining Russell Group universities, including places at Cambridge, LSE, Imperial, UCL and Warwick. Boys heading further afield will be taking up places at Notre Dame, the University of Chicago and Wake Forest in the US, with three boys heading to Europe to study at KU Leuven in Belgium, IE Madrid and Universitat Pompeu Fabra in Barcelona. The sporting talent of two boys has also been recognised by sports scholarships to Brunel University (Rugby) and the University of Akron (American Football).

Concluding, Seth Bolderow, Headmaster added ‘The challenges of the global pandemic were not unique to Wetherby Senior, but we were very impressed with the resilience of the boys and staff as we moved seamlessly to online learning. Uniquely for Wetherby Senior, they were our first Upper Sixth cohort and we will never forget the mark they have left on the school. No other group of boys can be a ‘pioneer’ group but we hope they will endeavour to follow the wonderful example set by our A Level class of 2020’.
