The Governing Body of St Peter’s Church of England Aided School in Exeter are delighted to announce their best ever GCSE progress for the class of 2016.

Chair of Governors Bindu Arjoon said: “These results show that governors, staff and students, supported by the Diocese have worked together to continue to build on last year’s progress.

“We are not complacent as we know there is always room to improve but with the appointment of Phil Randall as Headteacher, we are confident that we will continue on our path of striving for excellence with the school’s Christian ethos at the heart of everything we do.”

In a letter received from Devon County Council staff were congratulated for students’ excellent examination results. 

The letter went on to say ‘We were particularly pleased to see that this was achieved across all groups of students with a high percentage achieving the EBACC and those in receipt of pupil premium doing so well.  The percentage of pupils achieving a C grade above in English and Maths is the 4th equal highest in the County and well above the National average, your attainment 8 figure is significantly greater than the national average and 3rd highest of any non-selective school in Devon and your Progress 8 figure is in the top 30% of schools nationally.’

Headteacher, Phil Randall commented: “These results are evidence of students working hard and working positively with staff, students, parents and governors.  We will continue to reflect on and seek to improve all that we do so that students have every opportunity to be the very best they can be.”
