Jeremy Garner, Headteacher of de Stafford School issued the following statement regarding today's GCSE results:
I am delighted to report that this year the students at de Stafford recorded the school's best ever set of GCSE results and deserve to be congratulated on their outstanding achievement. These outcomes do not happen by accident and are a testament to the dedication and hard-work invested by students as well as the excellent support and guidance provided by staff and parents. 60% of all students achieved the key threshold measure of 5 GCSEs graded at A*-C, including English and Maths. This is a 6% increase on last year and a 17% rise in just 4 years making de Stafford one of the most rapidly improving schools in the county.
It is fantastic that the headline results are so positive but, more importantly, so many de Stafford students are now in a position to enter the next phase of their education with a strong set of examination results behind them. They have clearly thrived in their time here at de Stafford and we wish our year 11 leavers all the very best for the future. As incoming Headteacher, I am excited by the challenge of building upon these excellent results and ensuring the school continues to go from strength to strength.
