St Joseph’s School in Launceston boasted impressive results this year which sit significantly higher than the national average. 

Pupils performed significantly better than national averages once again. An impressive 28% of grades were awarded at 7 to 9 against a national average of 22%, while 87% of grades were at 4 and above, against a national average that saw 30% of grades awarded at 1 to 3. 

Headteacher Mr Oliver Scott said: “I am so proud of the class of 2023 for their achievements today, but even more so for the people I have seen them grow up to be. 

“None of these young people can ever simply be summed up by the numbers 1 to 9, but as one parent said to me today the grades are the icing on the cake of their daughter’s years at St Joseph’s. 

“My aim with every pupil is to help provide the environment where they can thrive and be happy, for them to have sense of the school as a special place, and to know they have their own space where they can grow to be people they, and we, are proud of. 

“Their GCSE results are then a product of this. It has been a privilege and a joy to have shared their journeys. I would like to thank all of the St Jo’s staff for all they have done to get the children to this point. 

“Well done to each and every young person who received their results today.”
