GCSE Results: Equalling the best ever top grades

GCSE Results: Equalling the best ever top grades

Berkhamsted School students are celebrating outstanding GCSE results with 38.4% of subjects passed at A* grade and over 90% of grades at A*-B. 142 out of our 179 pupils (79.3%) achieved results that included at least one A* grade. In fact, Berkhamsted Girls’ recorded more than 80% A*s and As for the first time.

Richard Backhouse, the Principal, commented: 

“Berkhamsted pupils have shown that hard work, outstanding alliances with their teachers, and a thoroughly committed approach to school life is a fabulous combination, bringing these super academic results, which pupils and staff can be proud of.”

Eleven pupils earned a full house of 10 A*s. Congratulations go to them for achieving a flawless set of grades.

While roughly one in five pupils achieved at least eight A* grades, often considered the platform from which Oxbridge applications can be launched, many more showed the ability to succeed academically, and to pursue a rich and rewarding array of extra-curricular commitments and achievements. The following pupils exemplify this all-round approach to education:
