Students at Aylsham High performed well again this year in their GCSEs, with 70% gaining five or more A*-C results (including English and maths) and 81% five or more A*-C (excluding English and maths).

Head Duncan Spalding said: “We are thrilled once again that our students have achieved such tremendous success in their GCSEs. At a time when talk is of turbulence and uncertainty in the system, achieving consistency is incredibly difficult.

“To achieve 70% plus 5 A*-C including English and Maths for the last five years is a tremendous achievement for everyone involved with Aylsham High School. It is great to know that, as well as leaving Aylsham High with some excellent academic and vocational qualifications, our students are also going out into the world as confident and articulate young men and women. I count myself as very lucky to have had the opportunity to help them shape their lives. I wish them all the very best in their future endeavours.”

He added: “It is also a pleasure and a privilege to work with such a fabulous staff as we have here at Aylsham High and as part of such a tremendous community of parents and carers. I know that our teachers work tirelessly to support our students to achieve the success they do. Our focus now is to ensure that we continue to support our students to achieve similar success long into the future.”

Sheryl Melton who gained four A and three B grades said: “I am going to study Veterinary Science at Easton College and I am really pleased with my results.”

Emily Coe, who is going to Paston College, and Brogan Quinn, who is now going to study English Literature and Drama at Norwich City College, both said they got better than expected results, with Emily adding she was looking forward to telling her parents.
