Former pupils and their families returned to the college on 17th November, together with governors and invited guests to celebrate their record breaking exam success - the best GCSE results achieved by the school ever!
GCSE Exam Results Highlights
Percentage pass rate at 5 A* - C - 53%.
Top boy Barnaby Crowley achieved 7A*, 2A's and GNVQ Distinction
(equivalent to a further 4A*'s at GCSE ).
Top girl, Lucy Brown achieved 7A*, 2A's and GNVQ Merit
(equivalent to a further 4B's at GCSE).
Chris Edwards, Chief Executive of Education Leeds, presented exam certificates, sports trophies and special awards to past and present students and offered words of great praise for their achievements and encouraged them in their future studies and careers.
Head teacher, Mike Woods presented a power point presentation including photos of students opening their exam results and of their time over five years at Corpus Christi ? some of the older photos causing much amusement and embarrassment to some!
As always awards night gives myself as chair of governors the opportunity to congratulate all the students and to thank staff, on their behalf for all the hard work which contributes to the students success and I include below an extract from my speech:
"It is a tremendous pleasure to stand here and again congratulate our pupils and staff on their wonderful achievements. Year on year results have gradually improved and this year we can celebrate record breaking achievements.
The television programme used to ask the question "What do you need to be a record breaker?" The reply was "Dedication's what you need ". We are blessed at Corpus Christi with a great team of dedicated leaders, teachers, support staff and governors, all dedicated to helping and guiding pupils to attain their maximum potential both academically and socially. As always and especially this year you students have responded with your own hard work and dedication and have achieved record breaking results. I am sure you will wish to join me in thanking all the teachers and support staff who have had a part in that success.
