Falinge Park High School
Opening Doors; Unlocking Potential
Results Day 2018
It was a day of celebration for pupils at Falinge Park High School with yet another year of good GCSE results. This included the number of Standard passes (4-9) in Maths and English combined increasing to 58% with the number of Strong passes (5-9) also increasing to 36%. This was also followed by an improved performance in the majority of subjects areas throughout the curriculum.
Rewards for hard work and dedication were realised in some incredible achievements. Outstanding performances included that of Zainab Qaisar who achieved an impressive handful of 9s – the grade achievable by the top 2% of the country- in English Language, Maths and History and an A* in further Maths. Tanzeel Imtiaz matched this with two 9s in Science to accompany an A in Further Maths and two A*s in Modern Foreign Languages. Imtiaz only joined the school in Year 10 from Italy and was particularly pleased with his grade 6 and 7 in English and English Literature. He puts his success down to hard work, determination and perseverance. As does Abdullah Haroon, who joined the school in 2015 from Sri Lanka. He also achieved 2 9s in Science and a 9 in Maths. His ambitions to be an engineer are so much closer now as he embarks on the next stage of his studies at Rochdale Sixth Form.
Thomas Schofield also typified the desire of Falinge Park students to succeed as his GCSE results, ranging from 7-9s have brought him a step closer to University. Alicia Darling, like many of the students, was overcome by a range emotions which left her ‘speechless’, ‘shocked’ and ‘overwhelmingly happy’ as her GCSE grades have meant that she can study Sciences at Rochdale Sixth Form and hopefully realise her dream of becoming a doctor. Lewis Lawlor was ‘surprised’ by how many passes he achieved and we wish him the very best of luck with his goal of joining the army.
Well done the class of 2018.
