ALMOST half of all pupils sitting GCSEs at The Bulmershe School in Woodley were awarded top grades of 9-5 – the equivalent of the old A*-B grades.

Four out of five physics students gained grades 9-5, while almost nine in 10 chemistry (86%) students and biology (88%) students did the same. 

In photography, 81% of pupils scooped grades 9-5. 

Ms Woodfin said: “These are amazing results”. 

Other successes included art, where all entries achieved at least 9-4 grades. 

In triple sciences, 89% achieved 9-4 grades. 

In other subjects, the percentage of pupils who got 9-4 grades were as follows: 73% religious studies, 71% music, 79% computer science, 73% drama and 67% English literature. 

“We look forward to welcoming Year 12 into our sixth form and thank them for their many contributions to school life here at Bulmershe,” Ms Woodfin said.
