Quinton House School Pupils Celebrate GCSE Achievements
Pupils from Quinton House School are celebrating excellent GCSE results today, including impressive Maths results with 7.5% of pupils achieving the new top grade 9, compared to the national average of 3.5%. 9% of pupils achieved a top grade 9 result in English or Maths, 57% achieved a grade 7 or above in English and Maths, 79% achieved a “strong pass” at grade 5+ and 93% achieved a “standard pass” at the new grade 4+.
Once again, Quinton House School pupils have outperformed the national average of 67.4% A*-C grades, achieving 83.9% A*-C grades in all subjects excluding Maths and English.
Ella Milner particularly excelled, gaining 6 A*s, 1 A, as well as a grade 7 in English Literature, grade 8 in English Language and grade 9 in Maths. Ella achieved an impressive maximum points in Chemistry and Physics. In addition she achieved a grade A in Additional Maths, equivalent to an AS Level. We’re delighted to welcome Ella back into Sixth Form as a scholar in September to study Maths, Psychology, French and Photography at A level.
Other pupils celebrating an impressive suite of results today were Holly Winterburn, Luke Hiorns-Boddington, Isabel Heath, Elizabeth Slater and Tom Hughes. Both Holly and Tom’s achievements are all the more impressive considering their sport training commitments, Holly being an England basketball player and Tom competing at elite level in the triathlon.
The 2017 GCSE results build on the excellent results seen in previous years. This year, just under a third of grades were at A*-A, compared to the national average of 22.1%.
Catherine Cozens, Headteacher of Quinton House School, said, “It is a pleasure to celebrate with our staff and pupils who have worked so hard to achieve these results. We are extremely pleased with pupils’ English and Maths results in the new grading system and are particularly delighted to have achieved a high level of grade 9 results in Maths.”
We look forward to welcoming pupils back to our Sixth form. Places are still available for September 2017.
