GCSE results day 2023 is here and nerves have been running high across Warwick district.

Especially as education chiefs warned that, as with A Levels last week, GCSE results nationally could take a dip due to a return to pre-pandemic grading.

See how local schools have performed as the results come in.

North Leamington School

Pupils at North Leamington School have outperformed the results achieved in 2019. Sixty-one per cent of students achieved a grade 5 or above in English and Maths – a seven per cent uplift. Seventy-nine per cent of students achieved grade 4 or above in English and Maths which is up five per cent, while 77 per cent of students achieved 5+ grade 4 or above GCSE’s inclusive of English and Maths.

High fliers included Luke Robinson with nine grade 9 results, Oliver Lau with eight grade 9 results, Summer Yao with seven grade 9 results and Freddie Noel-Storr who achieved six grade 9 results.

Senior assistant headteacher Matt Atkins said: “We are delighted for all of our Year 11 students. They have been an absolute pleasure to work alongside. Every student has risen to the challenge, whether through courses at GCSE or BTEC.

“It was fantastic to see so many happy students today that can now use this platform of ‘currency gained’ to continue to their preferred chosen post-16 pathway.

“Our students have shown the appetite to succeed and will no doubt continue in the same light with their journey of learning, whether through

‘A Levels’ or at college through a range of courses including apprenticeships; we wish all our students the best for the future. Enjoy the moment of tonight and the next few days.”

Myton School, Warwick

At Myton a third of students achieved a grade 7, 8 or 9 in English and a quarter in Maths, while some 75 per cent of students achieving a grade 4 or better in both English and Maths which meant they were able to enroll in Sixth Form and into post-16 courses elsewhere.

Special mentions go to Keira Howden and Elise Middleton-Shah, who each achieved seven grade 9s and one grade 8 in their subjects, and Rhiannon Hewitt, Xavier Jethwa and Nell Baynham, who achieved five grade 9s.

Headteacher Andy Perry said: “We are very proud of the students and wish them well.”

Southam College

Southam College is celebrating strong performances among its Year 11 pupils, with 74 per cent achieving grades 4 and above in both English and Maths and nearly one in every six students achieving grades 7 and above in both English and Maths.

The College said that while all students have made excellent individual achievements, with challenging years in their secondary school career, particular mentions go to Kate Middleton-Mai, Grace Stephens, Chloe Stretton, Erin Bradley, Lauren Brierley, and Zoe Sayers who all achieved six or more grade 9’s in their GCSEs.

The College also wanted to highlight some pupils for ‘exceptional progress’ over their time in secondary school. This went to Sophie Hancock, Daniela Sasu, Charlotte Hilton, Phoebe Adams, Katie Davies, Isabel Mur, Ruby Markham, Aisha Zak and Alex Stephen.

Headteacher Miss Mason, said: “ I am extremely proud of our Year 11 students this year, there are so many well-deserved results which will open doors to the next stage of these young people’s education and career pathways.”

Arnold Lodge School, Leamington

Of all grades awarded at Arnold Lodge, 25 per cent were 7-9, with 48 per cent at grade 6 or higher. Pupils achieved 82 per cent A*-A in languages (covering Spanish, Chinese, German and French) and 50 per cent achieved A*/A in the separate sciences.

Headteacher David Preston said: “We are incredibly proud of the hard work of all our pupils this year, but particularly our GCSE cohort. The fantastic set of results today are testament to the sustained commitment shown by our Year 11 to their studies over a difficult two years. Considering the return of results back to pre-pandemic levels, this marks a particularly impressive performance from ALS pupils.”

Campion School, Leamington

Hard work has paid off for pupils at Campion, as they produced some of the highest results the school has seen.

The vast majority will now go on to further studies in the school’s sixth form.

Headteacher Jassa Panesar said: “I would like to congratulate our Year 11 pupils who have worked hard and consistently all year and fully deserve these excellent results. Our families and staff have worked incredibly hard to support our children and I would like to thank them all. It has not been an easy few years for all. However, our community is strong, resilient and always works as a team. Well done to all.”

Deputy headteacher Peter Forsey added: “I am very proud of the hard work and attitude of our students during the last few years of their GCSE courses and at how they have reacted to the many challenges they faced. This year group has produced some of the highest results we have seen at Campion and their grades are well deserved. They should be very proud of their successes, and I know they will go on to even greater achievements in years to come.”
