Exceptional results were recorded in the sciences – with Physics receiving 83% A*-A grades, Chemistry 80% (half of these grades were at the highest A*) and Biology 77%. In Mathematics, in which some of the candidates were completing IGCSE for the first time, results remained strong with 64% of pupils achieving A*-A. Additionally, the College’s fine reputation in Music has been upheld with an 82% A*-A achievement record.
Headmaster, James Murphy-O’Connor comments: “In this Olympic year we have been extolling Olympic values such as dedication and determination in our school community. Our GCSE pupils have clearly taken this message on board and delivered gold medal performances. This is a year group that deserves its success and we have every confidence that they will build on this success and serve as excellent role models as members of our Sixth Form.”
