Exams News headerWe are delighted with the results achieved by our students this year – a true reflection of the hard work and effort put in by both the students and the staff that have worked alongside them.  We are particularly pleased with the rise in the number of students who obtained over 5 A*-C grades, including English and Mathematics, which has risen by 10% to 74%.  Both our English and Mathematics departments exceeded last year’s results with 83% of students passing their English and 80% awarded a pass grade in Mathematics.

In line with the new government expectations and measures, we have also seen a very healthy rise in the number of students achieving the EBacc suite of qualifications, with 40% of students gaining an A*-C pass in English, Mathematics, Science, a Humanities subject and a Foreign Language.

Talking about this year’s exam success Mrs Elizabeth Wylie, Headteacher, commented “I would like to congratulate all of our students on their success. There are so many individuals who have surpassed their targets and there have been some outstanding personal achievements.  I wish them all good luck in their future endeavours.”

Particularly outstanding results were achieved by Alexandra Judkins and Joanna Vines who secured 12 GCSEs passes all at A* grade.  Also, Seren Irwin achieved 10 A*, 1 A and 1 B grade and Dan Stoller 9 A* and 3 A grades.

Time to celebrate

Students, parents and staff at Amery Hill School are again celebrating excellent GCSE results, with students exceeding the national prediction for achieving the new top grade 9 in English and Mathematics. This year’s results saw some outstanding personal success with 23 students achieving the equivalent of 7 or more A*- A grades. Many individuals surpassed their own personal targets which is the result of the hard work, commitment and support shown by our students, staff and parents. Headteacher Mrs Elizabeth Wylie said: “We are particularly proud of how well our students have done in the core subjects of English, Mathematics and Science – 89% of our students achieved a good pass in English (both Language and Literature), 83% in Mathematics, and 79% achieved at least two good passes in Science. Overall, our results have seen 77% of students achieve at least five good passes including English and Mathematics, which is an impressive outcome and an improvement on last year’s excellent results. Students have performed particularly well in English and Mathematics, with 5% awarded the new top grade 9 in English, 8% in Mathematics and 5% gaining both overall. Nationally, only 2.9% of candidates have achieved this new top grade, equivalent to an A** so Amery Hill students have done incredibly well.” In particular our A*-A grade pass rates have been outstanding in Biology (39%), Chemistry (50%), Dance (50%), DT Systems Control (46%), Geography (34%), Media Studies (47%), Music (41%) and Physics (42%).View Article
