Students celebrating

David Walker, Head of the Stephen Perse Senior School comments: "This year’s GCSE results are a wonderful testimony to the hard work of our students. Over a quarter of our students achieved 10 or more A* grades, and there were many other success stories within the rest of the cohort.  That our students managed this whilst also excelling in sport, leadership, drama, music and the arts shows what a superb year group they were. They were also a delight to be around and we look forward to seeing their success continue into the 6th Form."

Students can now look forward to furthering their education, with many joining the Stephen Perse 6th Form in September. Looking to the future, Tricia Kelleher, Principal of the Foundation said: “Our approach to education looks beyond results, so whilst I’m immensely proud to see such excellent grades, I’m also confident that these young people leave us well prepared for life in an ever-changing, global and digital world. Knowing them and the great potential they hold gives me great optimism for the future.”
