LEEK High School's Year Eleven students have produced some startling GCSE results for 2013.

Many of the youngsters excelled and several subjects had first class outcomes.

Two thirds of the students achieved at least five good GCSEs and almost a third got at least ten GCSEs at C or above.

Some individuals who stood out included: Anne-Marie Simcock who got 15 higher grades with 11 A/A*, Olivia Ferris got 14.5 higher grades with 10 A/A*, Rebecca Higton got 13.5 higher grades including nine at A/A*, Lorraine Taffeni was awarded 14 higher grades including 7 A/A*, Ryan Jones got 14.5 higher grades with 11 A/A*, Ben Farnworth got 13.5 including six at A/A*, Andrei Razoare achieved 13 higher grades including eight A/A*, and Ben Turrell got 14 higher grades of which 13 were A/A*.

Special mention should also go to Emily Osbourne who came into the school with prediction of grade E’s and F’s but achieved eight higher grades including three A/A*.

Headteacher, John Spencer said: "It is always good to see the able students doing so well but we also celebrate the efforts of youngsters who achieve their targets regardless, if an individual youngster’s target was an E and they were awarded a D then they deserve praise.

"One hundred percent of our youngsters gained GCSE grades, over 90 percent achieved at a C and 98 percent achieved at least Level One in English and Maths.

"Amongst the subjects that have done well at Leek High are IT and sport – both achieved over 90 percent pass rates."
