‘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.
