GCSE Results Day 2019: Bourne Grammar School results
Pupils are celebrating record-breaking results at Bourne Grammar School today.
Of all the 2,299 GCSE results they received, 16 per cent were at the top grade 9 pass, which is higher than the old A* grade.
Some 57 per cent were at grade 7, 8 or 9, an equivalent to the old grade A.
Among the top performing pupils at the school were William Hawkins, Martha Watts and Anita Wong who all received 10 Grade 9 GCSE results.
All three also obtained A* grades in the further mathematics GCSE paper, with William and Martha receiving special distinction grades.
Erin Slater achieved nine grade 9 passes along with a grade 8 and an A* in further mathematics.
Jade Cox, Jasmine Forster and Gemma Parker gained eight grade 9 passes.
Across the results of all 239 pupils, the average grade was just under a grade 7.
Just over 100 pupils achieved at least one grade 9.
There were also impressive results in science with each of biology, chemistry and physics achieving at least 50 grade 9 results.
In the other compulsory subjects, there were 37 grade 9 passes in mathematics, 52 in English and 35 in Spanish.
Bourne Grammar’s headteacher, Jonathan Maddox, said: ‘This year’s results are of particular interest because they are the GCSE results of the first fully expanded year-group of eight forms.
"Having watched the students develop over the last five years we expected another strong set of results but the grades that the students received today are simply incredible.
"I am so proud of the students and of what they have achieved.
"I hope they will enjoy celebrating their success."
