  • 93% of all grades are 7-9 (equivalent to A*/A)
  • More than half (55%) of all grades are 9s (high A*) 
  • 25 Latymerians achieved ten or more grade 9s

Students and staff at Latymer Upper School are today celebrating the best GCSE results ever recorded in ‘normal times’. 93% of all grades were at 7-9 (equivalent to A*/A), with over half (55%) of those being 9s (A*s).  Over two thirds of the year group (116 pupils) achieved all 7-9s (A*/As) with 25 students achieving ten or more grade 9s and 20 students scoring all 9s. 

“Congratulations to all of our students in Year 11, who have done so well this year,” said Ian Emerson, Deputy Head, Academic. “These remarkable GCSE results follow on from an excellent set of A Level results last week and complete an incredible year for our School. My thanks to colleagues across all academic departments and pastoral teams and our Academic Mentoring Department, all of whom worked closely to deliver an astonishing level of holistic support and care for our students.”

Students have achieved this academic excellence whilst also enjoying success in sport, music, drama and charitable works. For example:

  • Musician Luke secured a remarkable 12 straight grade 9s (A*) 
  • Hockey 1st XI player, Phoebe also got straight grade 9s 
  • Charlie topped off a year of rowing success with seven grade 9s and three 8s 
  • Drama Scholarship holder, Paddy achieved nine grade 9s and one 8 
  • As well as running half marathons to raise thousands of pounds for their chosen charities, Julia and Sidd achieved outstanding grades (14 grade 9s and four 8s between them)

Head, Su Wijeratna said: “I’m absolutely thrilled for our students and their parents. I applaud them for their tenacity and dedication to their studies during such an unprecedented period. They have truly managed to make the most of their time at Latymer, excelling not just academically, but also across the many co-curricular activities on offer here. I congratulate them all on these excellent results and look forward to seeing them thrive in Sixth Form. I would also like to thank our incredible staff who have devoted themselves to providing outstanding pastoral support as well as inspirational and dedicated teaching. The hard work and dedication of our students and staff has culminated in these excellent results – the best in ‘normal times’ the School has ever had.”
