There was much to celebrate at Urmston Grammar as students achieved outstanding GCSE results this summer. The school was delighted that so many students have achieved remarkable results and there was widespread success across the board. Deputy Head Girl Gemma Bradley has spent this summer as an intern at local TV station called 'That's Manchester' on Freeview Channel 8 and she arranged for a reporter to capture the students' delight as they opened their results on Thursday morning.
Star performances include 20 remarkable students who achieved A*/A in all their subjects:Anudeep Ayinaparthi, Arsalan Chaudhry,Nicola Bennett, Rebecca Cooley Rebecca De, La Hoyde, River Edis-Smith, Sam Hague, Nabila Juhi, David Leeming, Joanne McNulty, Beth Sedley, Alex Stewart, Phoebe Tate, Katie Vincent, Chileshe Wabo, Alistair Ward, Jack Watson, Caitlin Willis, Cameron Young and Angela Zhang.
In addition Arsalan, River, Katie, Alistair, Cameron and Angela all achieved "A* with distinction" in the GCSE Further Mathematics which they studied as part of an extra-curricular enrichment course.
All of the excellent grades achieved this summer are a testimony to the dedication and commitment of Year 11 students and the high level support they receive from staff and parents. We are proud of all our students and wish them well as they continue their studies in the sixth form.
