FOLLOWING on from last week’s impressive A-Level results, Battle Abbey School registered another set of strong GCSE results this week.
Headmaster David Clark praised the students for their hard work and commitment.
Speaking to the Observer he said: “The school has yet again registered exceedingly robust GCSE results that leave our pupils well placed to push on and fulfil their potential at A-Level.
“The shift in focus away from coursework to exams has seen a slight dip in overall pass rates nationally and we are no different, but perhaps the pick of the statistics is that 90 percent secured all A* - C grades with 92 percent of all pupils achieving at least five passes.
“In fact 49 percent of all grades were either A or A*.
“Particular mention should go to Imogen Fricker who got an outstanding nine A* grades, Lucy Everist with six A* an A and a B grade, Jasmine Thakral with seven A* an A and a B, Irfan Chowdhury with four A* and five A grades, and Ben Jones with three A* and six A grades.
“Great credit goes of course to our teachers, pupils and parents for their extraordinary commitment to these achievements.
“This is a friendly and industrious year group who can feel very proud of what they have achieved, and we are suitably excited about the potential they represent as part of our sixth form.”
