Bishop’s Stortford College GCSEs: Eight students achieve straight 9s as 79% of results are graded at top three levels
Year 11 students and staff at Bishop’s Stortford College are celebrating as 79% of all GCSE results at the school have been graded 9, 8 or 7 – equivalent to A*s and As using the old grading system.
Eight members of Upper Fifth achieved a clean sweep of straight 9s: Samuel Barrett, Mia Burgin, Bea Burnstone-Cresswell, Laura H, William Lipscombe, Matthew T, Thomas Walsh and Harrison Yoxall. They were among 42 pupils who were awarded the College’s prestigious Ten Club tie for achieving grade 7 or above in all 10 GCSE subjects.
Head Kathy Crewe-Read said: “It’s a privilege to celebrate the achievements of such talented, determined young people.
"Despite the many challenges that have been placed in front of them – from remote learning to exam process uncertainty – our students have never failed to shine.
"I could not be more proud of our students and staff – who juggled remote and in-person learning with considerable skill – and am grateful to our parent community for all their support in such extraordinary times. I’m excited to see what this year group will go on to achieve in the sixth form!”
