Staff and students at a village high school have been celebrating this year’s GCSE results.

Endon High School opened it’s doors to Year 11 students this morning so that the teenagers could collect their long-awaited GCSE results.

Headteacher Alison Gibson said: “We have many triumphs to celebrate within the class of 2014, where we have nurtured our students to be ready for the next exciting steps in their lives both academically and as confident young people.

“We are so proud of the achievements of each and every one of them, as many of them have had their own personal journeys, with both highs and lows.”

Senior prefect Adam Maskrey gained 13 A* and 2 As. Mrs Gibson said: “Adam has truly made the most of his time at Endon High School, along with his commitments to sport, particularly competitive swimming, outside of the school day.

“An outstanding student, who empathised with students from all years, and was a fabulous role model to our younger boys, particularly around the site at break and lunch times.

“Adam raised £1,500 to take part in a trip to Nepal while in Year 11 as part of our Global Partnership project to improve the educational opportunities for students at a school in Kathmandu.

“He leaves us with 13 A* and 2 As including the Further Mathematics GCSE qualification that he completed in his own time.

Mrs Gibson also praised Ewan Smith for his “excellent set of results” after battling with illness through his studies.

She said: “Ewan is a young man who has always valued his education, even when his health has been at a critical low.

“Ewan has cystic fibrosis, which means that he has needed support regarding his health throughout his time at Endon High School, but he has never used this as an excuse.

“His attendance has been admirable throughout his time here, and he has always accessed education with enthusiasm even when undergoing a double lung transplant in March 2012.

“Ewan has an excellent set of results which he has worked very hard for and we wish him every success as he goes off to college to study Science and ICT.”

Mrs Gibson also praised Emily Walklate who has “always been an excellent student, giving her all both inside and outside the classroom.”

Mrs Gibson said: “Emily demonstrated tremendous compassion to all who she came into contact with, and was a leader amongst the year group.

“She is an exceptional linguist, not just achieving A*s in English Language and Literature, but also As in both German and Spanish.

“Emily was disappointed that she only had space on her timetable to study two foreign languages and so undertook studying French independently, gaining an A*.

“This dedication is indicative of the attitude that she has shown to her studies throughout her time at Endon High School.”

Mrs Gibson added: “Each of our students has their own personal story and through their hard work they have achieved results to be proud of as they move on to the next stage of their education.”

What the students said:

Rachael Hurst, aged 16, who lives in Endon, said: “I am happy with my results. I have done as well as I thought I would.

“I was a bit nervous earlier this morning but I am happy now that I have got my results.”

Emily Walklate, aged 16, said: “I am happy with my results. I did an extra GCSE last year in French which I had a private tutor for as I wanted to do other subjects in school.”

Sixteen-year-old Adam Maskrey gained 13 A* and 2 As and is hoping to be a doctor one day. He said: “I didn’t expect all of these results. I will now be going onto Westwood Sixth Form to do three sciences and maths at A Level with the hope of then going onto study medicine at university.

“Endon High has been a really good school and the staff have been really supportive.”

Sixteen-year-old Natalie Harding, from Birches Head, said: “I have passed everything I wanted to and will now be going to Westwood College to do A Levels in English, media, psychology and art.”

Emily Spencer, aged 16 from Milton, said: “I have passed everything I needed to go to Stoke-on-Trent Sixth Form College to study psychology, sociology, geography and business - al at A Level.

“I am so relieved that results day has arrived at last.”
