GCSE results: Strong performance from Battle Abbey


Students and staff at Battle Abbey School are celebrating after some more impressive GCSE results.

Headmaster David Clark said: “Battle Abbey School has yet again registered a strong set of GCSE results that leave our pupils well placed to push on and fulfil their potential at A Level.

“Overall the School saw a 99.5 percent pass rate with 87 percent achieving at least five GCSEs and 84 percent of grades were at A*-C. Perhaps most notable was that just under 30 percent of all grades achieved were at A* and A.

“A number of our subjects, including Chemistry, Art, Chinese, Textiles, Latin, Spanish and Dance saw every single candidate achieve A*- C.

“Some other subjects saw large numbers achieving the very top grades. Maths, for example, saw a fantastic 47 percent of all candidates achieve an A or A* grade.

“Particular mention should go to Katie Gibbs with 8 A* and 5 A grades. Roxanne Greenwood who achieved 4 A*, 4 A and a B grade. Tamsin Richendoller Hill who achieved 7 A* and 4 A grades. Ruby Chadwick Gibbons who achieved 6 A* 3 A and a B grade and Leon Dobson who achieved 5 A*, 2 A and 2 B grades. Ben Chandler who achieved 4 A*, a A and 2 B grades.

“Our GCSE cohort is an industrious and popular group within the school, and we are delighted that their hard work has paid off.

“Great credit goes of course to our teachers, pupils and parents for their extraordinary commitment to these achievements.

“We are suitably excited about the potential they represent as part of our sixth form.”
