Stoke College students have achieved outstanding GCSE results: 60% of grades in the top 9-7 bracket and 95% at the ‘strong pass’ of 9-5.
Dr Rui Chen, Deputy Head Academic, said “This year group have worked incredibly hard, supporting each other through the challenges they faced during the pandemic. They should be incredibly proud of their academic achievements as well the resilience they have displayed. The academic team at Stoke College are absolutely delighted with their students’ achievements.”
Star performers were Patrick B of Isleham, Cambridgeshire and Molly H of Saffron Walden who each achieved seven 9s, an A* and an 8, placing them among the highest achievers nationally. Patrick, alongside classmates Jack B-S of Sible Hedingham and Oscar M, an overseas boarder, also achieved A grades in their Further Mathematics, a level 3 qualification.
Principal, Dr Gareth Lloyd said, “I am so proud of our students and staff. These results are evidence of the success of our online learning programme – our students were fortunate to miss very few lessons, even in the early stages of the pandemic and received daily live teaching as if they were in school, through the lockdowns. A big thank you to my staff and ever-supportive parents, and sincere congratulations to our students.”
30% of the Year group achieved 10 or more grades at level 7 or higher with a further 3 students gaining at least 7.
Patrick B – seven grade 9, one A*, one 8, and an A in Further Mathematics (Level 3 FSMQ Award) Jack B-S – ten grades 8-9/A*-A including an A in Further Mathematics (Level 3 FSMQ Award) Molly H – eight grade 9, one A* and one 8
Marcus B – ten grades 7-9

Mathematics: Hot on the heels of this week’s A Level results, the Mathematics Faculty enjoyed continued high achievement, with not only Maths GCSE but also Statistics GCSE, and the Further Mathematics (Level 3 FSMQ Award) evidence of Stoke College’s first-rate Mathematics department. Around half of September’s Sixth Formers will continue their studies in the subject.
