De Aston School’s students have yet again been praised for their Year 11 results, with the school also receiving an award for its success in English.

Overall, the percentage of students achieving C grade or higher in English and Mathematics is likely to be well above 70 per cent, higher than last year.

The progress of the students looks set to put the school in the top 10 per cent of schools nationally.

The school had a significant number of students gaining the top A* grades, the highest grade awarded at GCSE.

Those Year 11 students who collected the top grades included: Chloe Brack, with 7 A*, 1 A and 1 A at AS Level; Megan Paterson, with 5 A* and 6 A; Ananda Schultz, with 5 A* and 2 A; Aura Pook, with 3 A* and 4 A; Gemma Chu 2 A*, 4 A and 1 A at AS Level; Jayne Milburn, with 2 A* and 9 A; Daniel Fuentes with 2 A* and 7 A; and Miles Lorryman, with 2A* and 4 A.

Headteacher, Ellenor Beighton said: “I wish to congratulate all the students who did GCSE and Vocational qualifications for their dedication and hard work.

“Looking at what we know so far, there are many students who should be very proud of their achievements.

“Yet again, here are some superb results at the highest grades in both traditional GCSEs and also Applied courses.

De Aston’s Head of English, Miss Sarah Peacock, was “really thrilled” by the announcement the department has won the 2015 Good Schools Guide Award for Excellent Performance of Boys taking GCSE English Language.
