    A total of 126 pupils received GCSE results at Campbell College today.  Commenting on the results Headmaster Mr Robert Robinson, MBE, stated,” Congratulations must go to all the boys on their individual successes and to the staff and parents for their hard work and support. It is rewarding to see the continued strength of our STEM subjects and the increasing strength of the Arts, or, as we refer to them -  our STEAM subjects.”

    The subjects demonstrating the strongest performance included Further Mathematics with 100% of candidates achieving A*-B grades followed by Chemistry and Physics; Art led on the creative subjects closely followed by Music, with 94% and 84% respectively receiving A*-B grades.  Mathematics and English, the core subjects at this examination level produced sound performances, underpinning the success across the curriculum.

    Two individuals in particular were celebrating when they opened their GCSE results to reveal 11A*/A’s each.  Timothy Devlin achieved 9A*s and 2A’s, whilst Harry Owens received 3A*s and 8A’s. Celebrating along with Timothy and Harry were boarding pupil Toby Hopkinson and day boy Joel Kerr who each achieved 10A*/A’s. With 8A*/A’s were John Gildea, Jeremy Ho, Izaak Johnston and Jack Megarry. Darius Beattie, Rueben Beers, Eoin Hollywood, Robbie Millar, Alastair Speers and Daniel Sterling all received 7A*/A’s.  Congratulations also go to members of our boarding fraternity Leo Lou (3A*s, 3A’s, 3B’s) and Rex Tinsley (5A*’s, 1A and 4B’s); day boys, Jamie Anthony (5A’s and 5B’s), David Stewart (5A’s and 5B’s), Jamie Doyle (6A’s and 4B’s) and Seth O‘Donovan (1A*,4A’s’ and 5B’s) are also noted.

    Mr Robinson continued, “Our performance across Science, Mathematics and the Arts is an example of how the College is preparing pupils to meet the needs of an ever changing workplace.  These subjects feed into industry growth areas such as film and engineering and we look forward to seeing how our pupils take these subjects forward.”
