Blessed Trinity are once again celebrating their best ever GCSE results.
The Roman Catholic College has a record number of pupils who received A* or As – with 11 receiving all A*s or As.
Year 11’s Danielle McKnight, Adam Kay and Josh Rawcliffe were the star pupils with eight A*s and two As while Head Boy Marcus Preedy celebrated seven A*s and three As and Head Girl Beth Bradshaw was also in the As – with six A* and six As.
Adam Stubbs, Lucy Williams, Emily Sarveswaran, Stephen Situ, Melanie Barth and Ellie Briggs were also all A* or A pupils.
Stephen Situ is going on to St Christopher’s in Accrington to study matchs, economics, physics and biology.
“I am shocked,” said Stephen. “I never expected to get so many A*s.”
Adam Stubbs, 16, got an A* in maths, said: “I never expected to get such good results in maths. Now I want to go to Thomas Whitam and study PE, Biology and now Maths and Further Maths thanks to my results.”
Katie Maudley was in tears after getting two A*s and seven As. “I never expected these grades – especially in English where I got an A and a B.
“Now I want to study chemistry, biology, Maths and geography as I want to be a doctor.”
Danielle McKnight was one of the top pupils and got the grades to help her fulfil her dream of becoming an optician.
“I never expected this – I am going onto Thomas Whitam. I like biology and have always wanted to be an optician for some reason!”
Adam Kay is now on his way to achieving his dream of attending Cambridge University after his top grades.
“I am stunned – I am now going to St Christophers to do my A Levels.”
“I am extremely pleased,” said Head Teacher Richard Varey. “I am thrilled that the school continues to make excellent progress and the results again are the highest in the school’s history.
“And once again it’s down to the hard work of our pupils, staff and the parents.”
