‘Core Strength at The Hurst!’
A fantastic 79% of pupils attained a grade 4 or higher in the core subject areas of English, Mathematics and Science. Students aiming for the highest grades were particularly successful in Mathematics, Biology, Chemistry and Physics, where over 20% of the cohort achieved grades 7 to 9 (equivalent to A/A*).
Superb results were also seen in Computer Science, Engineering, Product Design, Business Studies, Religious Studies, PE and Fine Art.
There were many stunning individual performances from pupils of all abilities. Tom Haggith and Phoebe Chave achieved an impressive seven top grades of 8/9/A*, with countless others also achieving the very best grades available.
We wish our Leavers from 2018 all the very best for the next stage of their education.
Each year, the Royal Geographical Society awards prizes to geography students who are the highest scoring candidates in public examinations.
We were delighted to hear that Samuel Randewich achieved the highest mark across the country in the GCSE Geography examination last summer and has been given the Society’s Excellence Award.
‘’I absolutely was not expecting this award but I am thrilled to have received it. I would like to thank my Geography teacher, Mrs Woods, for all the effort she made to inspire me to work hard and for making the lessons so enjoyable.’’
This award is thoroughly deserved. Sam is a highly motivated, hard-working student who had a diligent and inspirational teacher in Mrs Woods. It truly was a winning combination!
