Sandwich Technology School is delighted with the GCSE results that their Yr11 students have achieved.  The threat of a thunderous downpour of rain did not put the students or staff off from going in to see how well they had done and share in the celebrations.

They were pleased to see there has been considerable improvements noted since 2019 with 17 of their subject areas achieving higher outcomes than in 2019, the last time that external exams were sat. Across these 17 subjects, results were on average, half a grade higher than in 2019.  53% of the students who attended school during Year 11 achieved a Grade 4 in both English and Maths and 23% achieved a grade 5 in these key subjects.

Tracey Savage, Headteacher, said “despite a disrupted three years’ worth of education the students have done incredibly well, showing true grit and determination.  I am very proud of them.”

There were some high achievers who deserve a special mention, Stevie Redman achieved three grade 9s (in Geography, History and Sociology), four grade 8s and two grade 7s.  Mel Sherwood achieved two grade 9s (in English Language and English Literature), four grade 7s and two grade 6s.  James Gill achieved a grade 9 (in Statistics), two grade 8s, three grade 6s and three grade 5s.  Matisse Donnelley achieved a grade 9 (in English literature) one Distinction*, one grade 7, two grade 6s and four grade 5s.  The staff are so pleased that all of these students have chosen to continue their studies and complete their A Levels in Sandwich Technology School’s Sixth Form.

Alan Cadby, the Head of Year 11, could not be more pleased.  He commented “As a whole this year group have worked so hard, without any fuss.  It just goes to show that with the right attitude and application, difficult circumstances can be overcome.”
