Meridian pupils celebrate their maths results Usain Bolt style


A RECORD number of pupils from a Royston school have gained their maths GCSE seven months early.

Pupils at The Meridian School sat exams before Christmas, with 75 per cent – a new school record – gaining grades A*-C.

David Atkins, assistant head and maths teacher at the school, said: “We are so pleased with the achievement of this cohort of students, all of whom worked really hard to achieve these results, many of which were above target.

“Indeed, the A*-C figure of 75 per cent compares with a National figure of 42 per cent and we are pleased that twice as many Meridian students achieved an A or A* in November than students did nationally.”
