This week, pupils at Oswestry School are celebrating stellar GCSE exam results, a fitting reward for all their hard work and dedication. As a year group, they have faced the challenges of the past two years with remarkable perseverance, and are to be congratulated for their excellent achievements.
Close to 35% of grades were awarded in the very top 9-7 bracket, with a number of pupils achieving a clean sweep of the very top grade 9 award. Many pupils, including those from Ukraine, have triumphed over significant adversity, and are to be commended in particular for their positive approach and strength in resilience.
Headmaster Peter Middleton commented, “I am delighted to see that the hard work of our pupils and teachers has paid dividends with excellent grades across the board. As a non-selective school, we pride ourselves on getting the very best out of all our pupils. Whilst we believe that grades alone aren’t the sole measure of success, our pupils can be proud of what they have achieved, and it lays the foundations to move on to the next stage. Well done to them all!”
Once regarded as ‘Shropshire’s best kept secret’, Oswestry School is firmly back on the map and a school on the up with an increased school roll, a new Library Project ready for delivery during the forthcoming academic year, and strong results at both GCSE and A Level. The secret is out!
