Staff and parents joined with year 11 students at Shrewsbury High School GDST to congratulate the girls on their achievements in this year’s GCSE exams.
Shrewsbury High’s Head Darren Payne expressed his pride at their academic success but equally of how the students have navigated the challenges of the last few years, “We are delighted with the results that our Year 11 students have received today. They have demonstrated tremendous character throughout a challenging period of time. Through hard work and endeavour, Shrewsbury High School students have achieved results for which they should be incredibly proud. A huge thanks also to our dedicated teachers and staff at SHS who have worked closely with our students and their families to support them both academically and pastorally.
Alongside notable achievements in the core subjects of English, Maths and Science, Shrewsbury High students have demonstrated their broad array of talents across the curriculum. Once again at Shrewsbury High, students who study arts subjects have excelled, achieving high levels of success in Music, Art and Drama. Excellent results in Computer Science, Food Preparation and Nutrition and Design Technology further demonstrate the wide range of subjects in which students at the school excel.
There are many individual successes today and we congratulate all of Shrewsbury High’s students on all of their wonderful achievements. Now they can look ahead with excitement to the next two years in the Sixth Form. With 84% of Year 13 students moving into their first choice university this year, the new Sixth Formers know that whatever their ambitions, the Sixth Form at Shrewsbury High will prepare them for the future.
