Wilmington Grammar School for Girls GCSE press release – Head Teacher, Mrs Michelle Lawson.
In a year when students have faced the return to pre-covid examinations Wilmington Grammar School for Girls are celebrating some fantastic GCSE results from their students. Michelle Lawson, Head Teacher said “The results this year are a testament to the resilience and determination of our students working with our superb staff, together with the incredible support given by their families. I could not be prouder of their achievements or more thankful for the incredible community that underpins it.’ The average grade for students builds on last year's success with the highest percentage of Grade 9 and 8 that the school has seen, with nearly a third of grades being at grade 8 or above. We have some notably outstanding achievements from Nalia Huggins, Christabel Onuigbo, Rachel Chance, Yakshana Nareshkumar, Gracie Pye, Theo Waters with all results at Grade 9 or 8. We are full of admiration for this cohort who have been fantastic throughout their school journey and I would like to thank their teachers and families for their support and commitment. I am really looking forward to seeing them continue to excel as they move into WG6, our Sixth Form.
