Of the 1100+ examinations sat, 337 of them were awarded the top grade of 9; 625 being graded 9 or 8.

38 pupils have been awarded the College’s coveted Ten Club tie for achieving 10 or more grades at 9 -7 with a total of 238 grade 9s between them. 

Of the 5 sets of twins in the cohort, Freddie and Hattie C, Charlie and Tom M, Charlotte and Elizabeth T, Lewys and Owain W and Annie and Penny Z have a stunning 48 grade 9s between them.  

Top performers were Elizabeth G (12 9s), Penny Z (11 9s), Holly H and Sachi P (10 9s each), and Freddie C, Isabel G, Clara H, Lauren H, Caspar S, Lana V, Adam W-B and Annie Z who all achieved at least 9 grade 9 examinations. 

College Headmaster, Jeremy Gladwin commented, “Wow, what a spectacular set of results! I am so proud of this year group and of their teachers who have worked tirelessly to help and support them throughout their GCSE courses. The College goes from strength to strength academically, whilst at the same time offering a rich and varied extra-curricular programme. Every single member of the year group has achieved 5 or more 9-4 (A*-C grades). I remain, as ever, incredibly proud of everyone at Bishop’s Stortford College.”
