GCSE RESULTS

Pupils and staff at Christ’s Hospital are celebrating another excellent set of (I)GCSE results. This is another year in which an impressive 37% of all grades achieved were equivalent to an A*, with 64% of all grades at A-grade or above and 96% A*-C. With the new Level 9-1 grading available in more subjects, this allowed many of our most able pupils to achieve the top grade. 117 grades out of the all grades awarded were the top Level 9, equating to 15% of the cohort.

Strong performances are noted in Mathematics and Science, with 74.2% of all Maths grades achieved being equivalent to a Level 7 or higher; in Triple Science, 69% of all grades achieved were equivalent to a Level 7 or higher and in English 91% of grades achieved were A*-B.

Included in these results there are some hugely impressive individual performances including 30 Pupils who achieved at least 10 A or A* grades out of a cohort of 121 and 24 Pupils achieved at least 8 A*.
Special congratulations should go to:

Theodore Murton 12 A* (7 of which were at Level 9)
Sophie Lambert 11 A* (5 at level 9)
Katherine Linaker 11 A*, 1 A (4 at level 9)
Imani Tokpanoude 10 A* (6 at level 9)
Felix Adena 10 A* (3 at level 9)
Aidan Caunter 10 A*, 2 A (1 at level 9)
Manon Howard 10 A*, 1 A (1 at level 9)
Cameron Smith 10 A*, 1 B (4 at level 9)

These results and achievements are made all the more remarkable given the new, more challenging specifications and terminal examinations after recent reforms.

Simon Reid, Head Teacher of Christ’s Hospital commented, “Considering the journey that many of our pupils will have undertaken to get to this point, these are inspirational results. They and their teachers deserve loud praise for them. It is always easy to show that individuals have achieved at the ‘top’ end; however, unwavering light must also be shone on the many people in this cohort who did not gain an A* or A-grade but whose results reflect their very best. Christ’s Hospital will continue to be proud of its GCSE pupils because they embrace their school journey, negotiate its hurdles, and almost always emerge having done their very best.

A LEVEL RESULTS

Christ’s Hospital pupils and their teachers are celebrating another year of impressive A level results.

Overall 11% of all Pre-U and A Level grades achieved were equivalent to an A* with 61% of grades achieved being A*-B. Out of a cohort of 121 pupils 40 A* or equivalent grades were achieved with 22 pupils, 18% of the cohort achieving a minimum of one A*. 25 Pupils, 20% of the cohort, achieved strong grades in four or more A-Levels. 15 Pupils achieved a clean sweep of 3 or more A or A* grades. The average UCAS points achieved by each pupil was 124, which equates to BBB.

As a consequence of these results, 103 out of the cohort of 121 pupils choosing to apply through UCAS this year, 79% were able to take up either their first choice or insurance offer. With many of our pupils taking up places on course at prestigious universities including Bristol, Durham, Imperial College, KCL, LSE, Oxford, and UCL.

Simon Reid, Head Teacher of Christ’s Hospital commented, “Our pupils’ results testify to their strong embrace of learning opportunities over many years; they and their teachers, and everyone who has supported their time at Christ’s Hospital, deserve the warmest congratulation. Results like these flow from countless influences, many of them well beyond the classroom and at Christ’s Hospital, especially, there can be real pride in the successes reflected so starkly in these statistics.”

Over 25% of the cohort of 28 pupils gained 38 points or more and the average points achieved by the IB cohort was 34.1 points out of 45, or 192 UCAS points (equivalent to A A A A at  A2-Level).

Currently top places expected to be taken up by our IB Grecians include: Medicine at Imperial, Classics at University College London and Biomedical Sciences at Kings College London. Many congratulations to all.
