Celebrations all round for GCSE results

Hard work, resilience and effort has paid off as pupils at Latymer Upper School celebrate another excellent year of GCSE results with over 90% of the grades at A* or A.

Amongst the students celebrating with tears of joy and laughter were 13 bursary students who achieved a total of 106 A*s with four of them attaining a full house of 10 A*s. Ghaith, who joined us in Year 10 after fleeing from Syria, achieved excellent grades and looks forward to studying STEM subjects at A Level.

  • Over 70% of grades at A*
  • Over 1200 A* grades were gained by pupils across the year
  • 39 students achieved at least 10 A* grades
  • Over 90% of grades at A*/A
  • 88 pupils achieved at least 8 A* grades –over half of the year group
  • 80% of pupils achieved at least 5 A* grades
  • Over half of the year group achieved a grade 9 in Maths

It was a particularly nail-biting start to the morning for the parents of our five sets of twins: the 10 students altogether achieved 84 A* grades with sisters Emma and Rachel celebrating a clean sweep. Congratulations and thanks go to all of our supportive parents.

One group of talented students not able to pick up their results this morning were the actors and musicians at the Edinburgh Fringe performing Made in Dagenham to rave reviews. When the curtain went down on the morning’s performance, three members of the band were delighted to hear that they had achieved 29 A*s between them; congratulations Ozan, Isaac and Charlie!

Latymer Upper Head, David Goodhew commented, “Congratulations to our GCSE students for their outstanding set of results. I am very proud that, as well as achieving top academic grades, many of our students have become accomplished debaters, musicians, actors, scientists and sportsmen & women and contributed to a whole host of clubs and societies at the School. I look forward to following their progress in the Sixth Form as they continue to pursue their academic and extra-curricular passions.”
