S2 students at Berkeley Institute have “soared” in their English Language IGCSEs according to the school’s principal.

Dr Phyllis Curtis-Tweed praised the 11 students, who sat the exams in November 2015, as well as their teacher Sandra Burrows.

The students had some exposure to the IGCSE curriculum during M3 with tutorials for the exams at the Berkeley Institute.

Upon entry into Berkeley, they completed the programme in an accelerated class in approximately one year. They tested in November, six months earlier than their peers, with 100 per cent scoring between A* to C.

Dr Curtis-Tweed said: “I am so proud of the accomplishments of these students and their teacher, Sandra Burrows.

“Mrs Burrows is an excellent and dedicated teacher who understands the importance of rigour in the curriculum and in preparation.

“These results speak to the importance of exposure to the IGCSE curriculum in middle school. I look forward to increasing our interaction with M2 and M3 students and accelerating their participation in senior school programming.”
