Regardless of this year’s lockdown, the school upheld its outstanding performance in the sciences for another year running, achieving a remarkable number of Grade 9s: 46% in Biology and 43% in both Chemistry and Physics.
Also known for its strong visual arts department, North Bridge House Senior Hampstead scored 91% and 82% Grade 7+ in Art and Photography respectively.
Overall, 44% of all grades awarded were 8+ – the previous A* equivalent – which is particularly high for an academically non-selective school.
Top performing student Lucas Chow particularly excelled, achieving nine Grade 9s and an 8 in addition to the A* he had already gained in French. Having secured the top Grade 9 across English, Maths, Further Maths, Music, Computer Science, 3D Design and the sciences, Lucas is the school’s highest ever achieving student.
Fellow high achiever and Head Girl, Soha Adour secured an exceptional eight Grade 9s and an 8, as did Edward Wright. The pair, like Lucas, both celebrated success in French, highlighting the school’s strength in languages and contributing to the 85% of 7+ grades in this subject.
