NBH Senior Hampstead students celebrate excellent GCSE results with best ever number of top grade 9s
Students from North Bridge House Senior Hampstead are celebrating excellent GCSE results today, with an impressive 56% of all grades at Grade 7 or above. 93% of students achieved a “strong pass” at Grade 5+ in English Language and 91% in Maths.
The mixed ability school performed exceptionally well in Maths, with 66% of students achieving a Grade 7 or above – compared with the national average of 15.8%.
A remarkable number of top Grade 9s were gained in the sciences, totalling 55% in Biology, 46% in Chemistry and 42% in Physics.
Head Boy, Harri Carpenter particularly excelled, gaining six Grade 9s in Biology, Chemistry, Drama, English Literature, Maths, and Physics.
Maria Drel was equally as pleased, gaining five Grade 9s in Combined Science (awarded as a double-grade), French, Maths and Spanish, as well as three Grade 8s and a Grade 7 – the equivalent of all A* and A grades.
The languages department continues to build on last year’s GCSE success, celebrating 63% of grades at 7 or higher. In addition, eight students sat their GCSE qualifications early, achieving eight A*s and an A grade between them.
North Bridge House Senior Hampstead is particularly pleased with an overall 87% of grades at 5 and above across its broad range of subjects – all of which are the new reformed, more exacting qualifications, taken at the end of KS4 and heavily if not completely determined by student performance on the day – and most impressively, a total 34% Grade 8s and 9s.
Brendan Pavey, Head of North Bridge House Senior Hampstead, said:
“I am absolutely delighted for the class of 2018! They are a wonderful set of students and to achieve outstanding results is nothing less than they deserve. They have been brilliantly well supported by a fantastic set of teachers and I could not be more proud of their achievements. It has been a privilege to watch the dedication of them all and to see their beaming smiles when collecting their results this morning! Congratulations to everyone – children, teachers and parents!”
