Congratulations to all our students for whom the long wait for GCSE results is finally over!
Our results are excellent again this year with 70% of Year 11 students achieving 5 or more GCSE grades at C or above, including English and Maths and a quarter of all exam entries gaining A* or A grades. 24 students in the year group achieved 10 or more A* and A grades and 35 achieved 8 or more.
There are some superb results in all areas of our very broad curriculum together with many notable individual achievements. So many of our students have scored outstanding personal triumphs and we are thrilled for, and so proud of them all.
In terms of the sheer volume of A* and A grades achieved, our Top 10 performing students in Year 11 this year are:
Sophie Elburn with 13 A* grades and 1 A grade
Georgina Moore with 10 A* and 4 A grades
Charlotte Elliott with 10 A* and 3 A grades
Sophie Lane with 9 A* and 4 A grades
Hazel Mitchell with 9 A* and 4 A grades
Emily Holmes with 9 A* and 2 A grades
Rachel Burrell with 8 A* and 5 A grades
Kemba Mitchell with 8 A* and 5 A grades
Miles Wheway with 8 A* and 5 A grades
Prithvi Acharya with 8 A* and 4 A grades
Reflecting the diverse opportunities available to our students, we also congratulate those in Years 9 and 10 who took some GCSE exams this Summer. Of the 145 students in Year 9 who took GCSE Religious Education, 99% achieved a B grade or higher with a fantastic 60% achieving A* or A. Similarly, in Year 10, of the 192 students who took GCSE Statistics, 79% achieved A* to C and 29% achieved an A* or A grade.
These are truly amazing results which reflect the dedication and professionalism of our excellent staff and the hard work and commitment of our wonderful students; we are delighted for them all.
Finally, we wish all our students who leave us this year every success for the future. It has been a pleasure to work with you over the past five years and we will miss you all, each and every one of you!
