Students at Hill House are celebrating this week as they receive a record set of GCSE grades.
A record 51% of exams were graded at A*/A, beating the previous best from 2011, with a record 21% of exams gaining the top A* grade, beating 2007’s results.
91% of Year 11 students gained the all-important minimum of 5A*-C A*-C grades including Maths & English, while a massive 31% of the entire year group earned at least 8As or A*s each.
Unusually, the year group included 4 sets of twins. Tom and Joe Kell, George and Ruby Moore, Calum and Eilidh Macintyre and Harriet and Oliver Gregory scooped 73 passes between them, including 25 A and A* grades.
Yorkshire Rugby Forward Faraaz Anjum, Doncaster Jazz Band’s Saxophonist Charlie Spruce, Bessacarr’s Ella Broadbent and Woodfield Plantation’s Georgia Marsh all led the way overall with 9A*s and 1A each.
Headmaster David Holland was delighted with the successes, saying ‘this reflects a lot of hard work and talent from both students and teachers. We are thrilled to see a record set of results, and look forward to seeing this year’s group thrive in the Sixth Form.
