This morning has been a wonderful occasion with students, parents and staff at Minsthorpe Community College celebrating exceptional GCSE results. Minsthorpe Community College has seen a significant rise in the grades achieved by students across the vast majority of subjects. The diligence and dedication of students and their teachers has led to the highest ever attainment 8 score for the College (including Teacher Assessed grades in 2020 and 2021). Given all the obstacles which students have had to overcome, due to the pandemic, their achievements are particularly impressive.
The GCSE and vocational achievements this week, in addition to fantastic A level results last week, will make a significant impact on the life chances of our students. The Joint Principals Mr Gilmore and Mrs Merritt state, ‘It is truly a team effort and everyone plays their part in motivating our students to be the best that they can be. Our fantastic results represent the hard work and commitment of all the students, staff and parents’.
The College is particularly proud of the Motivation, Commitment and Care which all students have demonstrated, however there were numerous individual standout student successes including Keira Bloomer, Sally Hilton, Jasmine Rubery, Abigail Swift, Mason Skelding, Amelia Hodge and Ella-Rose Treacy. These students not only achieved multiple high grades across a range of subjects but demonstrated fantastic progress throughout their time at Minsthorpe Community College due their outstanding attendance and commitment to their learning. A particular special mention goes to Travis Phillips who has achieved six grade 9s and three Distinction*. Travis has now enrolled on a Level 3 Musical Theatre course and we are confident that his success will continue.
We are delighted that lots of our students are now returning to Minsthorpe’s Post 16 to continue their learning journey and would like to wish those who have chosen other paths into apprenticeships or employment the very best for the future.
What a term we have had! Enjoy reading all about it in the 'Team Minsthorpe' newsletter which includes some beautiful photos of Sports Day & the Year 11 Prom.
We are delighted to announce that Minsthorpe Community College has been recognised with a National Award for our outstanding commitment to sport.
Congratulations to our Post 16 students who have completed their exams. Have a fabulous Summer & we wish you success as you continue on your journey. We look forward to seeing you on results days (A level and BTEC/CTEC Level 3- Thursday 18th August. GCSE, Level 2 CTEC Thursday 25th August).
