This year’s GCSE results have, once again, proved to be the School’s best ever, with 54% of entries being graded at A* or A. The results compare to a figure of 51% last year and 45% in 2007. This improvement is more than three times the national average and is a tribute to the hard work and commitment of our pupils and teachers.
Dr Dominic Luckett said “I am delighted that this year’s results are so good, not least because of the opportunities they now open up to our pupils. It is wonderful to see their efforts being so richly rewarded.”
Special mention should be made of Kunal Walia and Jack Weller who were both awarded 10 A* grades. A further 25 pupils achieved 9 A*/A grades, an exceptional achievement.
Of those candidates in the Removes who took their French GCSE this year, 97% achieved grades A* or A.
These results follow our excellent A level results which improved on the record standards set in 2008, with over 70% of A levels being graded A or B. 23 candidates achieved 3 or more grade As. This represents a 35% improvement on the 2008 statistics and is, in itself, a splendid achievement.
Samantha Davis and Sayyid Said are to be congratulated on qualifying for their places at Cambridge University to read Veterinary Science and Economics respectively.
AS results matched last year’s record figures, with 58% of exams graded A/B. Fuller details of university destinations will be posted on here on 9 September.
