College Pupils Celebrate GCSE Results

Senior 13-16
Posted on: August 23rd 2018

It's another day of celebration at the College! 34% of non-reformed subjects and 23% of new reformed subjects (which accounted for two thirds of all examinations) achieved the top grades of A* or 9 against the average in England of 4.5%*. In the non-reformed subjects, 57% of grades were A* - A. 

31 pupils have been awarded the College’ prestigious Ten Club tie for achieving a 7, 8, 9, A or A* in ten subjects. Twins, Edward and Jack Holman are part of this cohort and will be staying on at the College for Sixth Form having gained 4 9s and 5 A*s between them. 

College Headmaster, Jeremy Gladwin commented, “In a year when examinations have become considerably more demanding for both teaching staff and pupils, I am thrilled that we have not just performed well across the board, but have surpassed all expectations when it comes to the new and prestigious grade 9. I am immensely grateful for the vast amount of hard work undertaken by the teaching body who have been severely tested by having to prepare new courses at both GCSE and A Level. The pupils have responded magnificently to their expert tuition and have worked so hard to gain these impressive results.”
