With 70% A*/A grades and 98% C grade or higher, the success is shared across the entire year group, and a reflection of the amazing opportunities that our students have to explore subjects that they have a genuine passion for, and want to succeed in.
“At Shrewsbury we offer nearly 30 different subjects to GCSE / iGCSE level, and this year we see top grades secured in every single one of them. This gives our students the opportunity to explore their academic interests and an incredible chance to specialise at A level, to follow in the footsteps of our accomplished alumni community to top universities around the world, and forge their careers in both traditional professions and emerging industries”.
“My heartfelt congratulations to all of our students. We are looking forward to welcoming you back next week for the start of what will be a really exciting Sixth Form journey at Shrewsbury”.
