GCSE Results 2022
Our first GCSE results from exams in 3 years demonstrate students' resilience
Following two incredibly challenging years in the lead up to their GCSE year, our Year 11 cohort have pulled off a tremendous feat to produce some excellent results. Their determination to perform well, with such uncertain times hopefully now fully behind them, has made their teachers (and I'm sure their parents) very proud.
Some particular statistics that go some way to detailing the high level of performance in exceptional circumstances include:
- our tenth straight year with more than half of all results at grade 8 or 9, equivalent to the old A*;
- a quarter of students achieving grade 7 or better in ALL their subjects;
- more than 500 grade 9s!
- our new larger year group (6 forms of entry) achieved more grades 7, 8 or 9 than all the exams taken in each of the previous exam years.
8 students managed to average 9 in their best 10 GCSEs: Owen Arnold, James Backhouse, Toby Barenbrug, Joseph Hopkins, Fraser Hutton-Squire, Tom Huxley, Aaryan Jain and Zubin Johri.
13 more achieved grade 8 or better in all their qualifications and a further 16 achieved grades that earn them a place on our Honours Board by achieving 10 or more grades at 8 or better, likened to the original achievement of 10 A*s.
We look forward to welcoming our students back this week, along with more than 100 students from other local schools who have also done extremely well, this year each achieving averages of grade 8 or above! Of course, some students leave us at the end of Year 11 too, to whom we wish the very best of success in their new challenge.
We hope the students enjoy their last moments of rest in the holidays before we embark together on their Sixth Form journey!
