GCSE success at Hugh Christie

Students in Year 11 have achieved some excellent results this year:

  • Over a quarter of the year group achieved the English Baccalaureate qualification where they need to achieve a C grade or better in GCSE English, Maths, Double Science , a foreign language and a humanities subject. This was over three times the proportion in 2015.
  • 96% of high ability students, who studied at Hugh Christie throughout their secondary education, achieved five or more GCSEs including English and Mathematics. This is above the national average.
  • Overall, students achieved almost half a grade better across all their subjects compared to 2015.
  • Congratulations to the twelve students who achieved Advanced Supplementary level English Language a year early. In addition, sixteen students achieved a GCSE Further Maths qualification.
  • Pass rates in most subjects have improved despite a national decline this year. Subjects that performed well include French (74% A* to C), Geography (87% A* to C) and Photography (87% A* to C).
  • 46% of the year group achieved five or more GCSE grades including English and Maths. This is a 6% increase on 2015. #
  • Despite a national decline, the percentage of grades awarded at A and A* more than doubled.

Students who achieved more than five A* or A grades include:

  • Abi Adams
  • Joseph Adams (including three A* grades)
  • William Alderton
  • Jake Bennett (including five A* grades)
  • Reece Bohnstedt-Armitt

“I would like to congratulate the students on achieving some excellent results this year. I am particularly impressed with how hard staff and students have worked together to perform so well. Hugh Christie students have met the demanding challenge of the English Baccalaureate subjects and have performed at a level above the 2015 national average; this is a remarkable performance for a non-selective school.”
