St. Anselm’s College GCSE Results 2019
Tremendous Achievements!

Our Year11 students are celebrating their GCSE results this week following some outstanding individual achievements. 95% of Year 11 boys achieved grades 4 or above in both English and Maths, with 24% gaining grades 7-9 in both subjects, and 36% of all GCSE results were at the top grades, with 93% grades 4-9. The Attainment 8 score of 60.58 was the best of the past 4 years since this national measure was introduced. This maintained the high standards of recent years and follows on from excellent A Level results last week.

There were some outstanding individual results with many boys achieving the new grade 9 led by Divij Wankhade from Upton. His 8 grade 9s are one of the best set of individual results achieved at the College under the new numerical grading system. John Barron, from Prenton, Thomas Hennessy, from Great Sutton, Matthew Ryan, from Eastham and Joel Sebastian, from Moreton, all achieved 7 grade 9s and Simon Shackleton, from Prenton, 5 of the highest grades. Many other boys achieved high grades and impressive results, exceeding their targets.

Headmaster Simon Duggan is pleased by the results, which he attributed to the commitment and dedication of boys and staff, and the support of parents, at a time when GCSEs have become more demanding. He commented “These are very impressive individual results, statistically among the best in our history. We expect these outstanding students to progress to the leading universities in the country, in 2 years’ time following in the footsteps of this year’s successful A Level students.”

The College was inspected by Ofsted in July and judged to be “a good school” that provides a good quality of education.” We were inspected by the Diocese of Shrewsbury in March and judged to be “a good Roman Catholic Grammar School with outstanding features.”
