National syllabus reforms have not shaken the resolve of Christ’s Hospital pupils and their teachers who are celebrating an excellent set of (I)GCSE results. An impressive 38% of all grades achieved were equivalent to an A*, with 67% of all grades at A-grade or above. With the new Level 9-1 grading available in six (I)GCSE subjects, an impressive 44 Level 9 grades were achieved. To put this into context 18% of all Level 9-1 grades achieved were at the top Level 9, equivalent to A**. These results represent an 8% improvement on the number of A* achieved in 2017.
Strong results were seen in Science, English and Maths with 88.5% of all grades achieved being A*-B. In Maths 52% of all grades achieved were equivalent to an A* or higher.
In these results there are some hugely impressive individual performances including 28 pupils achieving at least 8 A*. Congratulations should go to:
Conor Stewart 12 A* (1 of which was Lv 9)
Helena Thornton 11A* (1 of which was Lv 9)
Lottie Field 11A*(1 of which was A** in FM)
Elise Farquhar 10 A* (1 of which was Lv 9)
Heilia Leung 10 A* 3A
Luke Saunders 10 A* 1A
Lucy Liu 10 A* 1A
George Sanger 9 A* 2A (3 of which were Lv 9)
Lilith Weingarten 9 A* (1 of which was Lv 9)
Olivia Berry 9 A* 1A
These results and achievements are made all the more remarkable given the new, more challenging specifications and terminal examinations after recent reforms.
Simon Reid, Headmaster of Christ’s Hospital commented, “Signs of great individual achievement aside – and there are many of them – as a GCSE cohort, our students have done very well, indeed. They and their teachers have had to manage yet more change in the arrangements for assessment at this age-group and these results speak of cross-curricular health and genuine ambition. These results are a superb platform from which to build Sixth Form experience and I look forward with poignant interest to working with the group as they move forward and up.”
