The Year 11 students at Bispham High School are celebrating after already achieving As and A*s in their maths GCSEs – despite the school term being far from over.

The school, on Bispham Road, has already seen 10 pupils achieve the top grades.

Head girl Lauren Radcliffe, 16, said: “I’m really proud of getting an A grade, all the extra sessions the school has provided have paid off.

“I’m not sure I could have got an A at this stage of Year 11 without all the additional support provided by teachers.”

Pupils showing promise in maths can be entered early for exams meaning they can be put forward for further maths later in the term or spend time concentrating on other topics.

And A* Maths student Zoe Whitehead, 15, said: “I have loved my five years at Bispham High School and to achieve an A* grade in maths during my final year is so exciting.

“ I can now concentrate on other areas of maths which I am sure will help me.”

The teenagers are now looking to continue their studies in the subject, in some cases applying to take A-Level Further Maths courses.

Staff have said they are keen to develop a strong interest in the subjects and continue to nurture the rest of the year in maths.

Ryan Hughes, head of maths said: “I am absolutely delighted that so many of our students have achieved a fantastic result.

“It is down to the hard working partnership of our students, teachers and parents at home that have made this possible.

“We have shown what we are capable of, and now continue to strive for further success in summer.”
