GCSE results: Exceptional performance from students at Hockerill Anglo-European College
Hockerill students are celebrating strong GCSE results after a turbulent time for the Year 11s.

Leila Trusty was awarded nine 9s, one 8 and one 7, Cai Chappel got nine 9s and an 8, Lucy Groves scored eight 9s and three 8s, Harriet Dunne, Nicholas Petkov and Claudia Pettengell secured eight 9s and two 8s, and Maisie Fraser had eight 9s, an 8 and a 7.
Another 14 Year 11s gained at least eight 8s and 9s: Lara Akhurst, Ben Brixton, Mia Byng, Amelie Campbell, Patrick Feerick, Luke Hale, Kate Hayward, Emily Howells, Aydan Hung, Tiffany Kan, Jakub Moudry, Adam Nichol, Katie Ochiltree and Cameron Street.
Acting headteacher Sarah Pearson said: “We are delighted with all our students and their outstanding results. They have studied hard and have also shown resilience during the Covid-19 lockdown.
"GCSE results mark the end of a stage in these young people’s education and we are so proud of the way they have developed and responded to challenges as they worked towards this day.
"We look forward to welcoming back our students to the sixth form, where they will be joined by new students from local, national and international schools to study the International Baccalaureate Diploma.
"Our thanks go to our committed staff, our parents and, most of all, to our students. Well done!"
