A* performance - Further Maths
The Mathematics Faculty offered Year 11 students the opportunity to study an additional GCSE in Further Maths. The dedicated students and teachers gave up their time to attend lessons after school throughout Year 11.
We were delighted that of the 25 students who chose to take up this extra-curricular challenge, 88% achieved A*/A grades. Congratulations to them all!
The course is designed to place an emphasis on higher order technical proficiency, rigorous argument and problem-solving skills and gives high achieving students an introduction to AS level topics that will help them to develop skills in: Algebra, Geometry, Calculus, Matrices, Trigonometry, Functions and Graphs.A special mention has to go to Joe Lovell-McNamee and Simon Sharp who were both awarded distinction.
This qualification is suitable for gifted mathematicians who are likely to progress to A-level study in Mathematics and possibly Further Mathematics.
Thursday 21st August – this morning the corridors were filled with hopeful students awaiting their GCSE results. The mood of anticipation amongst Urmston Grammar’s Year 11 students and their parents soon turned to elation as they celebrated the school’s highest ever results.
A remarkable 24 students achieved A*/A in all their subjects:
Afiya Amesu, Mediha Butt, Sarah Case, Samuel Dillon, Bridie Finna, Georgia Guilbert, Rachael Horner, Samar Imtiaz, Samantha Johnson-Audini, Ivan Lee, Laura Mann, Jordan-Luke Mcdonald, Taylor Mckevitt, Patrick Moloney, Alexander Myall, Jack P O'Brien, Sanjay Patel, Eleanor Scully, Abhinav Soni, Megan Thorpe, Katrina Walker, James Wasp, Victoria Willows and Thomas Yung (Thomas achieved a B in Greek - but his phenomenal 11 A* grades mean we have to include him on this list!)
These outstanding results are testament to the commitment and hard work of our students and the support of all our staff.
Congratulations to all the Year 11 studentswho have achieved record results this summer. We wish them well as they continue their studies.
