Thomas Bennett Community College students were celebrating some great results and individual progress today (Thursday, August 21).
“Headline figures of 31 per cent five A*-C grades including English and maths do not reflect the actual results students achieved as many of our students achieved vocational equivalents, which the government determined would not count for this year,” said head teacher Ben Smith.
Some of the top achieving students this year are: Safiya Angliss 6 A*/A and 4 B/C grades; Jack Capon 3 A*/A and 8 B/C grades; Taylor Church 4 A*/A and 6 B/C grades; Cailan Cook 5 A*/A and 6 B/C grades; Jodi Fyfe 3 A*/A and 7 B/C grades; Elliot Gaines 9 A*/A and 2 B/C grades; Alice Gledhill 6 A*/A and 5 B/C grades; Nathan Johnston 4 A*/A and 6 B/C grades; Kieran McAlea 8 A*/A and 3 B/C grades and Azra Meral 2 A*/A and 8 B/C grades.
The school also recognised other students who had made ‘huge progress’ during their five years at Thomas Bennett.
They included: Matthew Georgant, Tapiwanashe Mupfupi, Edward Challinor, Dean Huggett, Lewis Fagence, Annaelle Lafleur, Brittany Garrod, Daryl Veerapahnaik, Selina Polat and Aaron Nugent.
“We are also extremely proud of the results achieved in the subject of English where 87 per cent of students achieved a top grade and 61 per cent of students made better than expected progress,” said Mr Smith.
