GCSE Results 2022

On Thursday 25th August 2022, students at City of Norwich School celebrated with staff after receiving their GCSE results, as they get ready to take their next steps in their education journey.

Staff and students have come together to mark the achievements of all the students, who have worked exceptionally hard over the past couple of years to secure these grades.

Alongside the continued success of the academy, which is sponsored by Ormiston Academies Trust (OAT), some particular individual highlights include:

  • Sam Palmer who achieved ten grade 9s and is joining CNS Sixth Form in September to study Physics, Maths, Further Maths and Chemistry A-Levels. 
  • Megan Howard who achieved eight grade 9s. Megan played an active role in school life during her time at CNS and will be a valued member of CNS Sixth Form when she returns in September. 
  • Vana Muhammad, Deputy Head student, achieved three grade 9s and four grades 8s. Vana is joining CNS Sixth Form to study Politics, History and Business Studies A-levels. Vana intends to carry on her student leadership work with a specific focus on celebrating the rich diversity of the CNS community.  
  • Garang Dut arrived in the UK with his siblings as unaccompanied asylum seekers in 2020, speaking very little English. He has successfully achieved three grade 4s and a grade 3 in English, Maths and Science.  

Jo Philpott, Headteacher at City of Norwich School, said:

“We could not be happier for the CNS Class of 2022; their excellent results reflect their hard work, positive attitudes and determination to succeed. Students have faced tremendous disruption to their learning over the last few years, yet despite this they have achieved excellent and well-deserved results. We are incredibly proud of them! 

“We look forward to welcoming the majority of our students back to CNS Sixth Form and we wish those heading to new destinations good luck and a successful future.  My thanks go to our amazing staff who have provided superb teaching and guidance and to parents for supporting us and their children throughout the last five years”.
