Excellent GCSE Results

St. Anselm’s College GCSE Results 2020

Tremendous Achievements!

Our Year 11students are celebrating their GCSE results today following some outstanding individual success. 97% of Year 11 boys were awarded grades 4 or above in both English and Mathematics, with 41% of all GCSE entries being awarded the top grades 7-9 and 98% of entries pass grades 4-9. The Attainment 8 score of 63 was the best since this national measure was introduced in 2016. This maintained the high standards of recent years and follows on from excellent A Level results last week.

There were many outstanding individual awards with Obediah Callaghan, from Hoylake, and Thomas Whiteley, from Meols, being awarded 10 grade 9s, which places them in the top 1% of 16 year olds for GCSE results! Alfie Whisker, from Prenton, and Archie Wyles, from Heswall, both achieved 7 grade 9s, closely followed by Justin McCoy, from New Brighton, and Sam Butterworth, from Greasby, who secured 6 and 5 grade 9s respectively.

Headmaster Simon Duggan is pleased, and relieved, by the results, which he attributed to the commitment and dedication of boys and staff, and the support of parents, at a time of huge disruption to the education system. He commented “This is a talented and hard-working Year 11 cohort so our students deserve these impressive grades and we are in no doubt that they would have achieved similar results if they had been allowed to sit their GCSE exams. Obediah and Tom’s awards are well-deserved and we expect all these outstanding students to progress to the leading universities in the country in 2 years’ time in the footsteps of this year’s successful A Level students.”
