GCSE Results, best ever top grades

GCSE Results – Best ever top grades

We are delighted that some many students performed brilliantly across a high number of subjects.  At the top end, we just about doubled our numbers for Grade 9 results from 18 to 34, and our number of Grade 8s went from 56 to 69.  In a national context where top grades are hard to achieve, this is a great achievement.   The particular successes are listed below:

  • Evie Mackenzie:   8 x 9, 2 x 8,  1 x A 
  • Charlotte Peckett: 4 x 9, 2 x 8, 3 x 7, 1 x 5
  • Hannah Craig: 3 x 9, 5 x 8, 2 x 7, 1 x B
  • James Ford: 1 x 9, 3 x 8, 3 x 7, 1x 6, 1 x A, 1 x 4
  • Abby Osborne:  2 x 9,  3 x 7,   3 x 6, 1 x 4 
  • Lara Jarman:  2 x 9, 2 x 8, 2 x 7, 2 x 6, 1 x B
  • Grace Pethig:  2 x 9, 4 x 8, 1 x 7, 1 x 6, 2 x 5, 1 x A*
  • Brandon Sadler: 1 x 9, 3 x 8, 3 x 7, 1 x 6

Across the full range of subjects, there were some very strong grades, with students showing high commitment to achieving well.  It means the numbers staying on at the Sixth Form here are up - as more and more students want to continue to A Levels and higher award BTECs.

Evie MacKenzie will be among them.  She is aiming for a career in medicine and was delighted with her excellent results. She said: “It’s like you have five years without knowing if you can do it – but now on paper I can say to myself that I definitely can.”

Hannah Craig, whose 9s came in English Language, English Literature and history, added: “I was so nervous, I’ve been up since five!  The teachers here have been so good to me, especially my English teacher Miss Brown.”

Brandon Sadler will also be staying on at Beacon’s Sixth Form, to study drama, film and geography.  He said: “I knew I’d done well with the drama practical but was worried I’d flunked the written, but I did better than I thought, so I’m very pleased.”
