Following on from the success of Amherst’s Henry Searle who made history this summer as Junior Wimbledon Boys’ singles champion, we are delighted for fellow Amherst boarders, Mimi and Daniella, who have each achieved 3 grades 8 and 4 grades 9 at GCSE and are on the cusp of professional tennis careers.
Excellent results have been achieved this year, and special congratulations go to Bella, Bonnie and Susannah who achieved a range of grades 7, 8 and 9.
We are particularly delighted for our Religious Studies and English departments which achieved 22% and 32% grades 8-9 respectively and for our Music Department which achieved 100% grades 9.
Abby who is one of our LUNTA Tennis students is really pleased with her results today. Abby has had to fit in tennis training and competitions whilst studying hard for her GCSEs. She’s delighted with her results which include 2 A* and that she’s now back playing after recovering from injury. Quite a year for Abby!
Ellie was so pleased with her results, saying, “I’ve passed maths. I’ve never passed a maths exam before!! She’s exceeded her expectations and is grateful to the School for giving her the tools to achieve, and she’s now looking forward to studying psychology, criminology and law.
Zoe was so shocked with her results saying, with a big smile, “The results are much better than I expected!” Meanwhile Bonnie was “absolutely thrilled” and very proud of her results in RE and English.
