THE headteacher of a Stockbridge school has said she is delighted with the students’ results after the GCSE grades were revealed last week.

Test Valley School pupils gained 73 per cent and 75 per cent for English and maths respectively achieving grades 9-4 (equivalent A*-C).

Head of the school, Louise Hiscock, said she was also proud of the determination of her staff to ensure the pupils achieved the best grades possible.

Pupils achieving a grade 5 or above in English and Mathematics were also up 7 per cent compared to last year.

The school congratulated all pupils for the results they achieved in a number of other subjects again this year.

Pupils were also celebrating for the results they have achieved in a number of other subjects again this year, with the highest achiever being awarded grade 9 in eight subjects.

Headteacher Louisa Hiscock said: “We are delighted with the results achieved by our pupils, especially in light of the changes to the GCSE curriculum and introduction of number grades this year in most subjects.

“We know how hard so many of our pupils have worked to achieve these grades and I congratulate and wish them all well as they go forward to the next stage in their lives.

“I am also proud of the commitment and determination of the staff here to ensure our pupils are all served well.”
