Highclare School GCSE students celebrate a multitude of successes as they receive their results today.
The School continues to build on an already impressive exam result reputation with a 98% overall pass rate (pupils achieving grades 9 – 4) and half of all grades in the 9 – 7 range. Among the Highclare students celebrating this morning are Tim Pan with 11 straight grade 9s including further maths, Madison Ealing with 6 grade 9s and 3 grade 8s and Malakai Florey-Meah with 5 grade 9s and 5 grade 8s.
Dr Richard Luker, Headmaster, comments, “We are immensely proud of our GCSE students who have proven that attributes such as resilience, aspiration, empathy, hard work, dedication to academic excellence and the education of the whole person, skills all nurtured during their time at Highclare School, have been crucial to achieving success during this incomparable time.
The results attained by this year’s GCSE cohort are the culmination of students and teachers displaying an unwavering dedication to the pursuit of success. Through small class sizes and committed teachers, each student is known and valued and grades have been determined in a robust and fair process by teachers who know each child very well.
Highclare teachers also provided a series of transition and career sessions in all subjects to help prepare pupils for A level and similar level 3 courses. Pupils were engaged in small groups to develop research, presentation and study skills ahead of the next stage of their educational journey. We know that the futures of the GCSE class 2021 will be bright and we look forward to seeing all that they go on to achieve.”
Having completed their GCSE examinations, students will look to continue their educational journey, with many taking advantage of the wide range of courses available, academic scholarship and the tutor-led approach to studying at Highclare Sixth Form.
