Outstanding GCSE Results 2018
Outstanding Grades for our GCSE Students
Students, parents and staff at The Emmbrook School are celebrating outstanding results this year. Our English and Maths Departments enjoyed significant successes, with the proportion of students achieving 4+ passes (equivalent to grade C) reaching 74% for these subjects.
Overall, one in five of all results were grades 7-9 (equivalent to A-A*). Our focus on academic excellence for all has resulted in outstanding individual performances, including very strong performance at the top end; on average each of our high ability students made a quarter of a grade more progress per subject than high ability students nationally. Impressively, ten students secured nine or more 7-9 passes, including:
Charlie Watson secured top passes in all of his subjects, with eleven grade 9s and a prestigious A^ (above A*) in Further Maths.
Amelia Abbott achieved ten grade 9s, an A* and a grade 8.
Mark Crawley earned three grade 9s, seven grade 8s and a grade 7.
Molly Drayton has three grade 9s, two grade 8s, three 7s an A and a B.
Ellie Harrop accomplished four grade 9s, four 8s, an A* and an A.
Wiktor Kepa secured six 9s, three 8s, a seven and a B.
Nicholas Spring has earned three grade 9s, four grade 8s, an A* two 7s,
Alec Stock achieved one 9, seven grade 8s, an A* and two grade 7s.
We are extremely proud of all our students and their well-deserved achievements. Alongside these high performing students, we had success across the ability range. We’re delighted to be celebrating alongside our students today, who have worked hard for their results.
Headteacher Paul O'Neill said:
“Given the strength of these results, the vast majority of our students are well prepared to progress successfully onto the next stage of their education. We’re delighted that so many have chosen to continue their studies with us in our excellent Sixth Form.”
We wish all of our students continued success in the future.
