Mr Nick Gallop, Head of Stamford School, said: “As a year group, the boys have performed exceptionally well and this is one of the best set of results at GCSE that the School has ever achieved. The boys have been outstanding in so many areas over the years – in drama, music, sport, adventurous pursuits – and have crowned all their achievements to date with the best set of GCSE results in more than a decade. We are all delighted that so many boys have surpassed their expectations.”
Mrs Vicky Buckman, Head of Stamford High School, said: “I am delighted for the girls and very proud of everything that they have done over the past year. It is evident from the results that they have worked extremely hard in preparation for their exams, but it is notable that their personal successes in their academic studies are being achieved alongside their much broader learning, across music, drama, CCF and sport, and in dedicating so much of their time to their School, and to their wider community. Their attitude to learning is outstanding, and their acquisition of academic skills – and not just knowledge – will underpin their future studies.”
