Chenderit School is once again celebrating excellent GCSE results.
Chenderit’s students are again celebrating excellent GCSE results today. 68% of the 171 Year 11 students achieved 5 or more GCSEs at grades A*-C grades, with 60% of all students achieving 5 GCSEs including English and maths. The new progress 8 measure shows that the school’s students made more than expected progress overall and performed in line with the fabulous achievements of students in 2015. This marks another outstanding year of excellent academic and personal achievements for Key Stage 4 students at the school.
Headteacher Jane Cartwright said: "I am so pleased for our Year 11 students. Overall, they worked extremely hard and achieved the results they deserved. On behalf of the school and the Governing Body, I would like to pass on my congratulations and thanks to the whole school community including the staff and students’ families who have supported them throughout: students have a great set of results of which they can be very proud".
There are some outstanding individual GCSE performances. In particular, the following students are commended for their exceptional results:

Students themselves have expressed their delight. Daniella said: "I am surprised and incredibly happy.” Rosie said "I didn't think I would get these grades but I'm so happy.” Jamie was also thrilled, commenting "Hard work is always worth it". Sam Bracke, a high achieving student, was unable to collect his results in person today because he has a work experience placement in Kent where he is learning about how to care for Meerkats, reptiles and beavers. Sam has aspirations to be a vet. Many parents were also pleased with their children’s results. Mrs Sykes observed "we are delighted with our daughter’s achievements which reflect how hard she has worked throughout her time at Chenderit.” Mr Meacham, on behalf of the Governor Body, added "this morning we are delighted to see so many happy students collecting their results which reflect all the hard work of both students and teachers over many years".
Chenderit students’ hard work and success means that the majority will join the school’s sixth form next month and embark on their A level studies. Mrs Cartwright said: "These results are a credit to the students and I wish them well as they take up their places at sixth form, at college or in training".
Chenderit students are again celebrating very many successes in today’s A-level results, marking another year of strong academic and personal achievements for students at the school. 23% of all results are graded A* or A, 48% of all results are graded A*, A or B and an overall pass rate of 97% has been achieved.
Headteacher Jane Cartwright said: "I am thrilled for Chenderit’s A level students who, once again, with the support of dedicated staff and their families, have achieved excellent results. Today’s results reflect the diligence and determination of so many in our community, over so many years and I am delighted that the futures that our students dreamed of can now be realised with virtually all of our students moving on to their destinations of choice.”

The support our students receive from the school and their families is essential in ensuring such success. These results demonstrate that our school provides high quality education to students in this area and, very importantly, that our students are challenged and supported to achieve their very best. I congratulate all students and wish them well as they take up their places at university, in employment, or as they begin their gap year. I wish each and every student success in the future.”
