With an overall pass rate of 100%, 42% of grades achieved were either A* or A, 72% were A* to B and 84% were A * to C.
Katie Purohit, from Goonhavern, was the school’s top performing student after getting four A*s in Chemistry, Maths, Physics and Biology. She will now to go to Cambridge University to study Medicine.
“I’m stunned,” said Katie, who has been at the school since Year 7. “I’ve always wanted to be a doctor.”
Other high-achieving students include Annie McKelvey, from Newquay, who is going to Edinburgh University to study Maths after getting 2 A*s for Maths and Further Maths and an A for Physics and Harriet Winn, from Mithian, who is off to Leeds University to study Accountancy after getting an A* in Maths and two As in Chemistry and PE.
“I really wasn’t expecting that,” said Harriet, as everyone in the room clapped at her excitement. “It’s fabulous, thank you so much.”
Harriet’s Mum, Clare Morgan, was equally ecstatic.
“This ends seventeen years of our being associated with Truro High because my eldest daughter Claudia came here when she was three,” she said. “I can’t thank everyone enough – both the girls have had a wonderful time here.”
Students will now be going on to a variety of universities including Bath, King’s College, London, St Andrew’s and Cardiff to study subjects ranging from Neuroscience to Fashion, Modern Languages to Psychology and Classics to English Literature.
“The girls’ results are excellent and it’s lovely to see so many happy faces,” said Dr Glenn Moodie, the school’s new Headmaster who officially starts on 1 September. “They have worked very hard and been supported by a team of dedicated staff. We all wish them well for the future.”
