Nearly half of all GCSE grades at Holme Grange School were grade 9-7 this year (the new equivalent of A* to A), making it a record year for the school’s GCSEs.
Headteacher Claire Robinson said: “This year group deserve their success with many achieving top grades. I’m also pleased for the staff who worked hard to prepare our students for these exams.”
The students achieved a 99% pass rate, and nearly half of all grades were 9-7.
French and Spanish Higher saw all pupils achieve 9-8, and all the individual Science subjects secured more than 80% 9-7 grades.
She added that the Science department did particularly well, with nearly all students securing 9-7 grades. 75% of all Art, Craft and Design grades were also at 9-7, as were 60% of ICT and Computer Science grades.
“I am extremely pleased that this year group has been so successful. They worked extremely hard and have been an outstanding year group within the school. This group of students represent our values and habits so well,” Mrs Robinson said. “They move onto their next adventure with confidence, resilience and self-belief. We have not only provided the platform for the pupils to achieve academically, but they are well-rounded people able to deal with whatever life will challenge them with.”
The headteacher congratulated all staff and pupils, and wished them the best of luck moving forward.
