Cordeaux Academy pupils have been celebrating this morning (Thursday August 21) after their long-awaited GCSE results were revealed.
Outgoing Principal, Peter Kubicki, hailed the “wonderful achievement” of the pupils, adding that for the third year in a row the Academy had got in excess of 50 per cent A*-C grades including English and Mathematics.
Top achieving student was 16-year-old Cameron Marnoch, from Mablethorpe, who achieved five A*s and four A grades. He will be going on to study A-levels in Physics, Chemistry, English Literature, History and Mathematics at Queen Elizabeth Grammar School in Alford, with the hope of going on to study English or History at university.
Beth McGowan and Ellen Drabble were the highest achieving girls. Ellen, from Legbourne, achieved 3 As, 5 Bs, 4 Cs and 2 Ds and said: “I am quite happy with my results, and surprised in a good way. I was relieved to see the right grades when I opened my envelope this morning.”
Ellen will now go on to study A-levels in History, Biology, Health and Social Care and English Language at Cordeaux’s Sixth Form, and hopes to become a paediatric nurse in the future.
Other very strong performances came from Harvey and Myles Featherstone, Matthew Mansey and Emily Ferrier.
A majority of students will return to the Cordeaux Post 16 provision based at the Wolds Centre.
Principal Peter Kubicki said: “The Academy has just entered into a ground breaking partnership with Gelder Education and Training, which will lead to an increasing focus on the world of business with the introduction of apprenticeships and traineeships alongside the more traditional courses.
“For instance, from this year group Oliver Foxon and Mitchell Fiddling will take up prestigious apprenticeships with local company GRS.”
Reflecting on this last set of GCSE results before he leaves for a new role in Qatar, Mr Kubicki added: “These results are excellent and testament to the sustained hard work of students, along with great teaching and the magnificent support from parents and carers.
“It has been a privilege to work with such talented group of young people.”
Vice Principal Mark Roberts, who will be Acting Principal in the term ahead, also congratulated students and said: “We are rightly proud of the achievements of our pupils which are in many cases well above the national average. Many students have significantly exceeded expectations. We value the achievements of all our students.”
Congratulations to everyone who received GCSE results today.
