August 25th saw beaming students and staff celebrating the fruits of their labour – great GCSE results! The class of 2016 broke Richard Lander School records with 74.9% students getting 5 or more GSCE (A*-C) including Mathematics and English. In addition, over 1/3 of all students walked away with at least 3 A/A* grades and 1/6 got 8 or more A/A*! Aside from this there were many personal triumphs where individuals saw focus, hard work and determination provide them with what they needed to follow their future dreams. Congratulations to all of our students and we wish you the very best in your 'life after Lander' adventures!
Top results at Richard Lander went to Eloise who said her results were 'really unexpected.'.
Achieving ten A* grades and two A grades, Eloise is going on to Truro College to do the International
Baccalaureate. Connie achieved A/A*’s across the board in all of her 11 subjects. Tegan also did brilliantly with ten A/A* grades and two B grades. Not to be
outdone by her friends, Millie also achieved an incredible
eleven A/A* grades, and one B grade.
Other notable successes include Jake who achieved ten A Grades, one A* and one B grade and said he was grateful to all of his teachers and he felt better now that the wait was over. Liam, who achieved eight A* grades and 3 A grades, is going on to do A Levels in Maths, Physics and Economics. Meghan was glad all of her hard work paid off, she achieved four A* and seven A grades. Geraint was ‘over the moon’ with five A* grades, four A grades and two B grades. Maya said ‘Overwhelmed is an understatement.’ She had been up since 5.30am to collect her five A*s, four A grades and a B grade. She plans to go on to do A Levels in English Language, History, Media and Photography.
Olly was really pleased with his three A* grades, 6 A grades and two B grades – but not half as pleased as his mum!
