College students rise to a charity’s big challenge

Have your say

IT was a mixed bag for schools in Fareham in GCSE and A-level results.

Neville Lovett Community saw a three per cent rise in the ‘gold standard’ – a further improvement on results over the past few years.

At Crofton School in Stubbington, 70 per cent of students achieved the ‘gold standard’, up five per cent from last year.

Headteacher Matthew Leeming said: ‘It’s the highest level the school has ever been at. We are all very pleased. Colleagues and the students worked extremely hard.

‘They are the best results the school has ever had.’

But Henry Cort Community College was badly affected by the grade boundaries with a 14 per cent slump on 2011 figures.

Cams Hill School was also down four per cent.
