Our students are celebrating some excellent grades that recognise the hard work that they and their teachers have put in over the past two years. Almost half the students achieved a grade 7 or above.

Martha Richmond is celebrating grade nine scores for all her eleven subjects, placing her among the best performing students in the country. She said: “I am delighted with my results, and really pleased all the hard work has paid off! The teachers did everything they could to help and encourage me to achieve my best. I am going on to study Biology, Chemistry and Maths at A level, in the hope to go into a biological profession in the future.”

Our dramatists were among the top performers with 75% achieving the higher grades 7-9. Sophie Huber, who played a lead role in last year’s production Lord of the Flies said “I am absolutely thrilled with my results. I have taken part in all the drama productions during my time at Giggleswick and I have thoroughly enjoyed them. They’ve also built my confidence and helped me to be ambitious.”

Classified as the hardest subjects by the CEM Centre, Physics and German have been an area of strength with an impressive 76% achieving grades 7-9 in Physics and 75% German.

Headmaster, Mr Turnbull, said: “We are delighted that that all the hard work of the students and their teachers has been rewarded by these results. In these exceptional times it is wonderful to have something so well deserved and that we can all celebrate. “

Isaac Larkin was also delighted with his results today. He said “I was so happy when I received my grades. I am planning to study Maths, Physics and Design for A level, as they are all subjects I enjoy and are a good combination for what I would like to study at university (engineering or architecture). During the Virtual School I took introductory courses and I found the content really interesting. Being able to sample new subjects was a bonus!”
