St Joseph’s School, Launceston, celebrates exceptional GCSE results

St Joseph’s School, Launceston is extremely proud to announce its 2009 GCSE examination results and, again they were significantly above the national averages.

Of all our Year 11 pupils to sit the exams 100% achieved 5 or more grades between A* and C, (including Maths and English). Our top grades A* and A reached nearly 60%, an unprecedented high.

It should be noted that most children at St Joseph’s take about 10 GCSEs; the school aims to achieve excellent results, in a non-selective environment, in the firm belief that pupils should have time not only to enjoy what they learn, but to enjoy a wide range of extra-curricular activities too.

Headmaster Mr Graeme Garrett said:

“This outstanding news consolidates our position as one of the Southwest’s most successful independent schools. We’re very proud of all the hard work which has made these fantastic results possible
