Saltus celebrates 100 per cent pass rate

Students at Saltus Grammar School are celebrating a 100 percent success rate in GCSE and IGCSE exams.

The outstanding results follow the success of Saltus' Graduate Year students in the recent Advanced Placement exams, where the students scored well above the global average.

Head of School, Ted Staunton, said: “Saltus is incredibly proud of our students' academic achievements, and the efforts and work they put into their studies.

“There is a huge sense of gratification from knowing that our students are well rounded, developed individuals. They are becoming global citizens, ready for whatever hurdles the 21st Century produces.”

As well as getting a 100 per cent pass rate, 92 percent of this year's S11 students received at least 5 A*-C IGCSE passes with 26 per cent of these being A and A* grades, according to a press release.

Students from S9, S10 and S11 also successfully sat a variety of the internationally accepted exams ahead of schedule, including 20 S9 student who achieved A-C grades in their ICT exam.

The top performer this academic year was Kaya Vogler, aged 16, who achieved 8A* and 1A grade.

Other students of particular merit included Logan Krueger who achieved 5As* and 4 As; Blair Blakeney achieved 5 A*s and 3 As; Tyler Kendall and Kaya Montarsolo both achieved 4 As* and 2 A grades; Adeline Young 4 A*s and 1 A; Rhys Kittleson 3 A*s and 3 As; Alys Webber achieved 2 A*s and 4 As; Lynsey Palmer received 2 A*s and 5 As; Toriah Smith achieved 2 A*s and 4 As.

Mr Staunton added: “These students have not only performed at a high academic standard but have also taken leading roles with major school performances, represented the school and Bermuda at sporting events and won various awards over the past 12 months.”
