Good humour and hard work pay off for Ipswich School GCSE pupils

Ipswich School Headmaster, Nicholas Weaver, said he was delighted with the excellent set of GCSE results recorded today (Thursday 12 August).

Nicholas Weaver said:

“I am very proud of our brilliant Year 11 pupils, who have met the challenges of the last 18 months, with focus and good humour, and who have achieved such excellent results across our wide range of subjects. This is our largest ever cohort of GCSE students and they have done fantastically well, especially in such a testing time.

“Once again, our pupils have applied themselves and staff have worked with great integrity through the process. I am thrilled that 62 pupils achieved 9 or more GCSEs at grade 7 or above, with 10 pupils achieving the top grade 9 in 9 or more subjects. I’m delighted to celebrate with all of our students today.”

Andrew Bradshaw, Head of Middle School, said: 

“I am immensely proud of this wonderful cohort of Year 11 students and their achievements. They are a remarkable group of young people with a strong work ethic and a genuine sense of camaraderie. Ipswich School’s GCSE students have faced each of the lockdowns and the challenges of learning during the pandemic with resilience and maturity; they have consistently applied themselves, both online and in school, and have supported one another through this unique time. They epitomise the Ipswichian student and I am sure that they will flourish in the Sixth Form.”

Some examples of student successes include Lizzy Merrigan and Rehaan Husain, who both achieved 10 grade 9s in their GCSE subjects; Archie Allen, Albert Newton, Joshua Scoote and Aisam Raja who all achieved nine grade 9s and one grade 8; Luke Davison and Alex Van der Pluym, who each achieved eight grade 9s and two grade 8s, and Olivia Walker, who achieved seven grade 9s and three grade 8s in her GCSE subjects.

Nicholas Weaver added:

“This is an exciting time for us, as we experience the highest ever demand for an Ipswich School education. Families are clearly recognising the breadth of opportunity in our co-curricular programme alongside a first class academic education and outstanding pastoral care.”
