The Ellesmere Port Church of England College (TEPCEC) students have raised the bar by securing an impressive set of GCSE results.
The College, which became part of the Frank Field Education Trust earlier this year, is celebrating the fact that across every measure there has been a notable improvement in GCSE outcomes.
Rt. Hon. Frank Field MP, Chair of the Frank Field Education Trust, said: “In less than two terms, our multi-academy trust sees its first school in full flight and us delivering on our promises to the community. We have already bucked the national trend by seeing an increase in the proportion of our A-Level students achieving the top grades; and our GCSE results show a very significant improvement on last year.
“Both the A-level and GCSE results show what can be achieved by setting the highest of standards. Historically, the standards at this school have been appalling, but we are making it a place that is a pathway of success for our students’ futures.”
Among the students celebrating is Eloise Bradbury who achieved an impressive Grade 9 in English Literature. Harry Christian achieved 10 GCSEs at Grade 7 or above, including a Grade 8 in Chemistry and Geography as well as a Distinction* in Business Studies.
Other top performers included Matthew Barlow who achieved a Grade 9 in both English Literature and English Language and Caitlin Henderson who achieved a Grade 8 in Biology, Chemistry and Physics. Tamarka Hudakova secured a Grade 8 in RE and Spanish, while Scarlett Pealing also achieved Grade 7 or above in eight of her GCSE subjects.
Cath Green, Principal at TEPCEC, said: “These results are testament to the relentless hard work of our students and staff. It is wonderful to see how far our school community has come within only a few months and I am incredibly proud of all that has been achieved.
“What is exciting is where our school goes from here. We are welcoming some fantastic new staff to enhance our teaching further. The new Be More curriculum will increase the opportunities on offer and we will continue to strengthen links to our community.
“The future is very bright for this college and our students!”
