GCSE Results 2020
Many congratulations to Year 11 Grammar School boys on a superb set of GCSE exam grades. It has been a nervous time with press coverage speculating on how students’ achievement might be affected, but boys can now be relieved and proud of results that accurately reflect both their hard work and the skilled direction of their teachers over two years of study. They have laid firm foundations upon which to build as they embark on A Levels in a fortnight’s time.
Two-thirds of results were at grade 7 and above (equivalent of the old A grade) and half the year group achieved at least five 8/9 grades. Max, Ben, Rohit, Adithya, Robin, Aditya and Jake who all achieved a full set of grade 9s, but huge congratulations are also due to all those boys who have made immense academic progress through their focus and dedication. We look forward to welcoming back onto campus as they develop into the next generation of pupil leaders.
