GCSE Results Day, Thursday 22nd August 2022
Some of Newman's top achieving students celebrating their successes this morning.
There were lot of very happy faces at Newman RC College this morning as students eagerly opened their GCSE results together with proud family and staff.
This year brought a return of students sitting externally assessed exams after two years of disruption. Simple comparison of 2022 GCSE results with the previous two years is therefore not possible, but what must be praised is the hard work and determination shown by Year 11 students this year, for whom their final three years of secondary school including final exam year were heavily disrupted by COVID. We could not be prouder of our students’ efforts.

Pictured above, Jennah Amin, Iris Iftikar, Leo Norton, John Haboc and Nithya Shaju achieved an outstanding 31 Grade 9s and 15 Grade 8s between them to be Newman’s highest attaining students this year. Jennah intends to study Sciences and Maths at Oldham Sixth Form and said “I am overjoyed with my results and I want to give special thanks to my teachers for everything they have done for me.” Iris wants to study Biology, Chemistry, Maths and Economics and said “Really happy and relieved. My grades are thanks to my teachers and the support school have provided”.
