The Hurst Community College
We are incredibly proud to announce that our IT teacher Mrs Molton, has achieved a CAS Master Teacher Award and The Hurst is now a Lead School in the Network of Excellence. This will allow us to offer support to other schools in our community through sharing good practice, lesson observation and team teaching. This reflects Mrs Molton's expertise and commitment to computing and computer science.
‘Record Maths Results at The Hurst!’
An outstanding 83% of pupils attained a grade 4 or higher in the new Mathematics GCSE, with 75% of pupils attaining a grade 4 or higher in the new English GCSE. This is despite the new GCSEs having more challenging content.
The new top grade (9), which only a few thousand pupils across the country are expected to achieve, was awarded to Hurst pupils in both English and Mathematics – a stunning achievement.
Excellent results were also seen in Art, Chemistry, Drama, Engineering, German, Media Studies, Music, Physics, Product Design, Religious Studies and Resistant Materials.
We wish all our Year 11 leavers all the best for the future.
GCSEPod is now available at The Hurst! We have subscribed to the award-winning service to give your child access to thousands of hours of professionally produced, audio-visual content which will benefit them throughout the coming year.
