Celebrations at St John Plessington for GCSE results day
It was a morning of joy for those at St John Plessington Catholic College, Bebington, on 24 August for GCSE results day. Year 11 students were delighted to be back at school with their peers to receive their long-awaited GCSE results. Staff and students alike were delighted with this year’s results. There have been many success stories this year. Julia excelled across her subjects, receiving five grade 9s, two grade 8s, two grade 7s, and a grade 6. She is planning to study maths, computer science, and further maths at A-level. Achieving four grade 8s, three grade 7s, two grade 6s and a grade 5, Peter performed excellently. At sixth form, Peter will study physics, biology, and maths. As a result of his hard work, Isaac achieved two grade 8s, three 7s, a 6, three 5s, and a distinction* and will be moving on to undertake history, biology, and chemistry at A-level. Following their GCSEs, students will be moving on to further education, studying for A-levels and BTECs, with all of the above students, and many other Year 11s, choosing to remain at St John Plessington and enter Year 12 as part of its sixth form. Mr Peadar McLoughlin, headteacher of the school, said: “It has been a fantastic morning at St John Plessington Catholic College, celebrating the achievements of our Year 11 students. During their time here, they have shown so much dedication and it has most definitely paid off. We are all so proud of them, they are a credit to our school and Trust. “A huge congratulations to all our students receiving results today. I am looking forward to seeing many familiar faces in sixth form.” The Bebington-based school is part of the Holy Family Catholic Multi Academy Trust.
