Science College celebrates outstanding results.

As Bolton’s only Specialist Science College we are once again celebrating the successes of our talented pupils. GCSE results in the sciences continue to be amongst the best in the country with a 100% A*-B in the triple science award and 73% of these gaining A*/As. In addition to these outstanding results, 100% of Year 10 pupils sitting science early have already achieved A*-C.

Huzaifa Patel, Sharples’ top performing pupil achieved a total of 10 A*/A grades, with 7A*s including Biology, Chemistry and Physics. Huzaifa wants to study medicine at university and with these grades he is well on the way. Charlotte Crowe achieved 7 A*s and 3 As and hopes to go on to study dentistry whilst Rhiannon Green who achieved 4A*s and 5As among her results will also study sciences at A’ level before going to university.

Sharples has a tradition of outstanding science results and our talented teachers go the extra mile to get the best out of our pupils. Indeed, earlier this year Sunday morning revision sessions were held at MacDonald’s in Bolton town centre to entice pupils to work as hard as they could. Assistant Headteacher, Caroline Molyneux was a finalist in the National Biology Teacher of the Year award, and will start teaching GCSE Science to parents and Astronomy GCSE to primary pupils from September.

Elsewhere, several pupils achieved outstanding grades across all subjects; Sameera Mank was celebrating 8As and an A* in French while Simon Cutts achieved 5 As plus A*s in Music and Geography.

I am delighted for our students and what they have achieved. They have had to face so many government changes within their school career. They have worked very hard and done extremely well. I am very proud of their accomplishments and we all wish them well in whatever future pathway they choose.

This has been a ‘volatile’ year for GCSE results not just for Sharples, but across the country. We will continue to work tirelessly to help our pupils achieve the very best for them as individuals, within the new performance measures, and do whatever it takes to ensure they are as successful as they can possibly be.
