The Mount, Mill Hill International is celebrating its excellent results achieved at IGCSE and GCSE, with this year’s cohort gaining over 43% of 9-7 (A*-A).
The rigour of the IGCSE Cambridge International Examinations and the reformed GCSEs notwithstanding, many of our pupils managed to achieve outstanding results, no mean achievement considering the examinations were taken with under one year’s preparation, instead of the two year GCSE course with the majority of pupils studying in the UK for the first time and for whom English is an additional language. Individual successes include one pupil from Japan who achieved six 9s, an A* and a 7, and another from Thailand who achieved five 9s, an A and an 8.
Many of the Year 11 pupils will be joining Mill Hill School to start their A level courses in September while a number have been offered places in other leading independent schools such as North London Collegiate School, St Paul’s School, Whitgift and St Albans High School.
Although we take pride in our pupils’ achievements, we recognise and celebrate those accomplishments that are not measured by GCSE grades such as the endeavours of our sportsmen and sportswomen, the creative performances of our musicians and actors, those who gave up their time to complete Trinity Arts Awards and the Duke of Edinburgh Award, and the selfless acts of kindness carried out by our pupils in volunteering throughout the year.
