GCSE RESULTS 2019: Stour Valley Community School in Clare delighted by continued improvement of students




Stour Valley Community School says it is delighted by the continued improvement and progress made by its students, after almost 70 per cent of their GCSEs were graded 5 or higher.

The school, based in Cavendish Road, Clare, saw 65 per cent of pupils achieve a grade 4 or higher in both English and maths, with 38 per cent scoring at least a grade 5, improving on last year's results.

Headteacher Rachel Kelly hailed the results as "really pleasing", explaining there have been a lot of personal success stories.

He said: "Credit must go to the students who worked hard and all the parents and carers who supported them throughout.

"I am also very grateful to the hard work and commitment from all the staff at Stour Valley, teaching and non teaching. They all play such a key part in contributing to days like these, where we can celebrate success."

Out of the 105 Year 11 students, 25 attained at least three results at grade 7 or higher, with particularly strong performances in English language, maths, statistics, biology, physics, history, foot technology, and art and design.

"It is therefore very pleasing to see so very many students achieve highly and prove resilient in the face of this challenge.

"They have gained results that are a credit to them and which will provide a gateway to their chosen courses next year, whether these are academic courses, vocational choices or apprenticeships.

"Many thanks to parents, carers and of course teachers, support staff and tutors for all they have done to help the students to succeed."
