GCSE Results Day: The Minster School, Southwell
Four top-performing students at The Minster School, Southwell, each achieved a minimum of nine grade nines in their GCSEs — an achievement matched by only a small number of students nationally.
Ei Lwin, Molly Marsden, Thomas Waldron and Halcyon Matthews each achieved the milestone and are looking forward to their studies next year at A-level.
At a special occasion before the main results day, the highest-performing students and their families joined head teacher Mr Matthew Parris and head of school Mr Ben Chaloner to receive their results.
The school's results saw 79% of students achieving passes in both English and maths alongside their other subjects. Qualifications were awarded in wide-ranging subjects, including economics, food, music technology, drama, further maths and three languages, alongside the standard school curriculum.
Mr Parris and Mr Chaloner congratulated students and teachers on their efforts to secure the results. They said they were looking forward to welcoming the vast majority of students back in September to begin their A-level studies in the school's 6th form, and also wishing those moving on to new challenges all the best for their futures.
