GCSE Results 2020

After a turbulent period for our Year 11 students and their families, we were delighted to celebrate with the Class of 2020 on GCSE results day. Once again, Wellacre boys did themselves and their school proud.

The results awarded this year were not just about the final grade, but a massive reflection the hard work, commitment and dedication the class of 2020 had shown over the last 5 years. Throughout their time at Wellacre they have spent their days pushing themselves further, motivating themselves and challenging themselves to be the best they could be. 

Our students have been a credit to Wellacre and have contributed so much to our school community during their time with us. We wish them all the very best for their future endeavours and hope that we see them back soon, inspiring the next generation of boys.

Wellacre Principal Mrs Wicks said;

“I’m so proud of the Class of 2020. It has been a privilege to watch them grow and develop into hard working, polite, kind and resilient young men. 

"There are many more opportunities for them to explore and certainly more challenges ahead, but the skills they have acquired will ensure they are ready for them. My message to the boys is “Be proud of who you are and all that you have to offer the world. Always believe in yourself, take pride in who you are and how far you have come. You were born to be successful. Go out and conquer the world!”

There were many notable individual successes including the following students:

 

Twins Jack and Thomas matched each others’ success with fantastic results enabling them to move onwards and up.

Thomas added: “I was really pleased about the grade 9 in Computing and grade 7 in Maths.  I’m excited about moving on to Urmston Grammar School.”

Brothers Jack and Joseph also celebrated an outstanding pair of results between them!  Jack’s first class results included grade 9s in English Language, Maths, Combined Science, French and Geography, a grade 8 in English Literature and a Distinction* in Sport and he has moved on to Stretford Grammar to study A Levels in Biology, Maths and Physics.
