GCSE Results 2017 - News and Pictures

Tom and Ms Seward Science   CopyOur students are celebrating some excellent GCSE results, which were announced today, Thursday 24 April. Here's what some of our highest-achieving students had to say.

Tom (right, pictured with science teacher Ms Seward) gained 13 A-A*grades and an 8 in Maths, English Language and English Literature. "I'm excited and a bit overwhelmed," he said. "I think the revision made a difference and giving my all. The school definitely supported me and pushed me to get through this.” He’s now going on to study French, History and Geography at A Level.

Filip   CopyFilip (pictured with Mr Everitt), who achieved eight A-A* grades, said: “I’m really happy with what I got. I revised hard and put the work in and the teachers were there for me morning and evening.”

Mark, who achieved 14 A-A* grades and a 9 in Maths said : “I prepared really hard and learned a lot and am really happy with how I did. The teachers set me extra work to help me take things to the next level.”

Nii-Akwei’s dad, Adotey (pictured below, right), was really proud of his son’s achievements. “We’ve had two boys at this school. We wanted to send them here because it has an ethos of achievement and a good system for supporting students. Every time we’ve come to the school we’ve met teachers who have provided inspiration and they’ve always been very accessible.” Nii’s mum, Hilary (pictured below, left), said she was “absolutely delighted. Nii gave A* effort and got A* results.” Nii (pictured below, centre) achieved eight A-A* grades.

“The reason I did so well was definitely the teachers,” said Dylan, who gained seven A-A* grades. “They don’t just take care of your educational needs but your whole wellbeing. If I was overworked or stressed they reassured me and reminded me of previous times when I’d felt like that but come through it.”

JudeJude (pictured right, with Mr Groves), who achieved six A*-A grades, said: “My approach was to revise quite a bit every day and if there was a topic I didn’t understand the teachers were there for me.”

“I wasn’t expecting an 8 in Maths!” said Theo, who also gained 11 A-A* grades and an 8 in English Literature. “My approach to the exams was to focus on key knowledge. I would say the time here was well spent! I’m off to do A Levels now, probably History, Chemistry, Politics and EPQ.”
