Time to celebratePosted on: September 22nd 2017
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%).
