Eden Boys’ School celebrates first GCSE results

The first cohort of pupils at Eden Boys’ School, Bolton have opened their GCSE results – and are celebrating 90% of them picking up the highest grades.

78% of pupils achieved ‘strong’ GCSE passes in English and Maths at grades 9 to 5, while 90% achieved grades 9 to 4 in these key subjects.

These results are expected to place Eden Boys’ School, Bolton among the top 5% in the country for both attainment and progress.

Shabir Fazal, Principal of Eden Boys’ School, said:

“We are incredibly proud of our first Year 11 cohort and all their achievements. They have worked very hard, with support from our outstanding team of teaching staff and also their own families, and have applied themselves well to the very challenging, reformed GCSE courses with more exams and no coursework.

“Following on from our outstanding Ofsted report last year, these exceptional outcomes are further evidence of our total commitment to ensuring every single student achieves to their potential. What is even more pleasing is that our boys have developed strong community values and a sense of loyalty to each other and the school.

“We are very proud of our students and school community. They are a credit to themselves and their families and everyone at Eden Boys’ School is delighted to have played a role in helping them become the fine young men they are.”

Abdul-Hakeem Atcha passed all his GCSEs at grade 6 or better, and achieved the top grade of 9 in Chemistry, Physics and Biology. He said:

“Waiting to get my results was nerve-racking. I tried to block out any thoughts of predictions! I’m very happy and relieved now that I’ve got these excellent results. The teachers and other staff at Eden Boys’ have been very helpful to me and I really appreciate everything they have done for me and all the other students.”

From September Abdul-Hakeem will be going to Runshaw College to study for A-Levels.

Zamaan Al-Islam achieved the top grade of 9 in Religious Studies with eight of his grades being awarded at grade 7 and above. Zamaan will go on to study A-Levels in Chemistry, Biology and Law.

He said:

“I’m absolutely gob-smacked to achieve these grades. They are even better than I had hoped for and I couldn’t have done it without my amazing teachers and the support I got from my family.”

Zaman’s mum added:

“The school has been amazing. The amount of encouragement and support he got from Eden Boys’ was remarkable. I can’t thank them enough.”

Zain Desai was delighted to achieve the top grade of 9 in Chemistry, Physics and Mathematics. In total he gained 11 GCSEs passes, and will  move on to Runshaw College to study for A-Levels. He said:

“I can’t believe I’ve done so well. Thanks to all my teachers and school for their hard work.”
