We are delighted to announce another year of excellent GCSE results. The first grades awarded on the basis of exams since 2019, they continue the strong track record of success by our students who have faced such challenges over the 2 years of their GCSE courses.
Half of all results are at Grade 7 (A) or better, with 15% of grades at Grade 9 and 32% at Grade 8 or 9 (equivalent to A*). Eight students scored at least 8 Grade 9s, of whom two scored 10. A third of students achieved at least 7 GCSEs at Grade 7 (A) or better.
The percentage of results at Grade 5 and above (considered a ‘strong pass’) was 83.2%, and 92% were at Grades 9-4 (the equivalent of an A*-C pass on the old system). Over a quarter of grades in Biology, Physics, Chemistry, History, Ivrit, Food Technology and Further Maths were at Grade 9.
Among many outstanding individual performances are:
Ella Haber, Timara Kaplan (10 Grade 9s)
Nina Joffe (9 Grade 9s, 1 Grade 8)
Herbert Byrne-Smith, Gabriella Stern (8 Grade 9s, 2 Grade 8s)
Raphael Kelvin, Aury Mosseri, Jessica Shahrabany, Ruby Wilkins (8 Grade 9s, 1 Grade 8)
Gracie Peller (8 Grade 9s, 1 Grade 6)
Micky Boyne, Sofia Legazpi Palatnik, Chloe Silverman, Daniel Solomon (7 Grade 9s, 3 Grade 8s)
Headteacher, Mr Moriarty commented: ‘These are excellent grades, achieved against a backdrop of exceptional challenges during and since the pandemic. Not only were GCSE courses disrupted by school closure, isolations and remote learning, but the social and emotional toll on students and their families has been very significant too.
‘We rejoice with shared pride at these excellent raw grades, but also at the many students who have exceeded personal goals, school targets or both. I salute all our students and their parents who have borne additional burdens, and mention in particular those students who have triumphed over individual hardships that may have denied them the full recognition their talents deserve.
‘I thank my colleagues for their exceptional hard work, professionalism and care which underpin everything that our students achieve. They are a phenomenal team and I am profoundly grateful to them, and for them.’
