Events at Mullion School

Mullion School Presentation Evening

Given the year group’s considerable success in the GCSE examinations, there was much to celebrate as ex-students, their parents, staff and governors gathered for the award of certificates and trophies to Mullion School’s Flight 32. Each cohort of pupils is given a Flight number. The school symbol is the arctic tern, the bird with the longest migratory pattern of all creatures, symbolising the fact that Mullion pupils will travel all around the world. The evening, therefore, marked the 32nd cohort of students to leave Mullion School and like the Arctic Tern, to start their journeys and adventures through life.

Pupils came back to receive their official GCSE certificates, but there are also over forty individual awards and numerous subject and Head Teacher commendations presented at the event. There is a great deal of interest about which former pupil is selected to win which award.

The Headteacher, Mike Sandford, paid a handsome tribute to the students on their results as they achieved the 2nd best equal set of results ever recorded by Mullion School, with 63% of the pupils achieving 5 or more A*-C Grades including English and Maths. However, the students had certainly achieved a record breaking set of results in terms of the progress (or the Value Added) that the pupils had made, with the English Department being placed in the top 21st percentile, the Maths Department in the top 15th percentile, the Science Department in the top 23rd percentile, the Languages Department in the top 24th percentile and the Humanities Department in the top 7th percentile nationally.

The guest speaker was ex member of staff Mrs Amanda Hipkiss who worked at Mullion School for 25 years and in that time built up a tremendous reputation for Special Educational Needs work at a local, regional and national level. She was nominated in this year’s National Teacher awards and despite the fact that there were a record number of entries – 24,500 – she went on to win the Ted Wragg Lifetime Award for the whole of the South West Region, one of only 7 regions in the whole of the UK.

In her speech Mrs Hipkiss encouraged the students to make the most of the opportunities given to them, to be optimistic and to never give up when they encountered problems.
