Jubilation at Sidmouth College GCSE results

Sidmouth College’s GCSE results are up by 11 percent in best ever achievement

THERE are celebrations at Sidmouth College today as GCSE students achieved the best ever results for the school.

Reluctant 16-year-olds retreated to corners of the college hall to digest their results, which mean an 11 percent rise in those achieving five A* to C grades – up from 66 per cent to 77 percent.

There was also a rise to 62 percent from 54 percent last year, in those getting five A* to C grades including English and Maths.

Deputy principal Julie Capewell said: “We are delighted with the results, they are absolutely fantastic.”
