GCSE Results Reflect School Progress
Grange has taken another step in its recovery by recording improved GCSE results today. Just over a year ago, we were placed in special measures by Ofsted. Now, under the leadership of Paul Morrissey (Executive Headteacher) and Alison Mander (Headteacher) from Guiseley School, we have received three very positive monitoring visits by Her Majesty’s Inspectors and now recorded improved examination results at both A Level and GCSE.
Early indications are that the results are indicative of the progress made over the last year, which is a welcome improvement following a turbulent period in the school’s long history.
Sabeeha Azizi (pictured above) topped the class with a grade 9 (the top grade under the new system), two grade 8, two A* and four A grades. Close behind was Ramlah Qureshi with a grade 9, two grade 7, three A*, two A’s and a B grade. Saqib Iqbal was the top performing boy with two subjects at grade 8, one grade 6, two A* grades, three A’s and one B. Ahmad Ashfaq was close behind with an 8, 7, 6, one A*, five A’s and a B grade.
Miss Mander, Headteacher said: “These results are further evidence of the improvements made in the last year at Grange. We are extremely proud of our students’ achievements and delighted to see their commitment, determination and hard work paying off today. Whilst it is encouraging to see these improvements, we are under no illusions about the task ahead. This is a long-term project based on a rigorous school improvement plan and we need to continue to do things differently and better to make Grange the school our community deserves.”
