August 2019 GCSE Results

GCSE success continues at The Marches School

The Marches School has achieved strong GCSE outcomes across the board building on last week’s A-Level success.  Congratulations are passed to all students on today’s results. 22 students gained at least 7 top grades with Imogen Dean and Emelia Newton achieving all 10 GCSEs at top grades.

Students have worked incredibly hard this year to provide a strong foundation for their future. It is also exciting to see many students able to continue their studies into The Marches Sixth Form, where many will go on to study at top universities.

Headteacher of The Marches School, Alison Pearson commented: “Our Year 11 students are a credit to the school and the community of Oswestry.  Their hard work has been rewarded and we are delighted.  I would like to recognise and thank parents for the strong working partnership we have had; it has been key to so many students achieving their potential. Staff at the school have worked tirelessly for the students and will enjoy celebrating with them today.”

The school Open Evening will take place on 19th September which prospective parents and the community are invited to. Mrs Pearson will showcase the school facilities and introduce the team that worked hard to make these results happen. More information can be found on our website.
