The Hurst Community College
Over 40 pupils were delighted to pick up awards at The Hurst Community College's annual prize-giving celebration last Thursday evening.
The former Year 11 pupils were recognised for their sporting and academic achievements with prizes generously sponsored by local individuals and organisations, including The Loddon Valley Lions, AWE, Baughurst Parish Council and Tadley Chamber of Trade.
Headteacher, Roger Jones, began the evening with a review of the cohort's successes. Of the 240 pupils in the year group, a stunning 93% had achieved A* to C grades in GCSE English Language, contributing to a very pleasing 69% gaining 5 or more GCSEs at A* to C including English and Mathematics. He also praised the pupils for their role as key ambassadors for the school when Ofsted visited last May and graded the college as 'Good'.

‘Amazing English Language Results at The Hurst’
Pupils and staff are delighted with the outcomes for the 2015 exams for Year 11. An impressive 69% of pupils attained the key measure of 5 or more GCSEs at grades A* – C (including English & maths). Congratulations to everyone!
Helping us to achieve this figure were record results in English Language where an amazing 93% of pupils attained A* - C grades. The word ‘outstanding’ is over-used by schools but our English Language results, attained by our largest ever Year 11 cohort of 240 pupils, are simply that ….. ‘outstanding’!
