GCSE RESULTS ARE IMPRESSIVE

Despite increased challenge in many GCSE exams and a different grading system, students at Prince Henry’s have once again produced an impressive set of results. There was potential for significant turbulence in result but it appears that teachers and students have risen to the challenge and have even managed to improve on the usual high levels of achievement. We are very pleased that 78% of our students secured a pass in both English and Maths (higher than previous years) and an impressive number achieved top grades across a range of subjects, including the much sought after grade 9 (equivalent to an A*+). In addition the analysis of examination results suggests that Prince Henry’s students of all ability levels have made very good progress whilst at our school.

There are some amazing individual successes with an impressive number of students securing the equivalent of a grade A, A* or A*+ (grade 7, 8 or 9) in all of their GCSEs. There are too many to mention here, but of special note are Laura McPherson (seven grade 8s and three grade 9s), Maurice Baldwin (five grade 9s, three grade 8s and two grade 7s), Johannes Kotzee (seven grade 9s, two grade 8s and an A*), Oliver Merry (six grade 9s and five grade 8s), Beth Liddicott (eight grade 9s and two grade 8s).

The majority of Prince Henry’s Year 11 students will continue studying in our on site Sixth Form, but there are still a limited number of places available for other students wishing to join our highly successful sixth form at Prince Henry’s Grammar School.

I am extremely proud of all of our Year 11 students and staff - they have worked together to secure these great results. Students at Prince Henry’s show real enjoyment and dedication to their learning and this, together with the expert teaching, guidance and support from our dedicated staff means that very many students have exceeded expectations. Personally it is really pleasing to see so many students achieve the grades they need to progress to the next stage of their learning. My congratulations go to all our students, together with my thanks to both staff and students for their hard work.”
