GCSE Records Tumble as harder GCSEs pose no problem at Hill House!

Pupils and staff at Hill House are celebrating this year after another record-breaking set of GCSE exam results.

Despite concerns over how hard the newly graded GCSEs would be to achieve, the Hill House pupils managed to secure a massive 27% of the top 9 and 8 grade passes, with 46% gaining grades 9-7 passes. The overall pass rate was a tremendous 96%.

Grade 9:                  14%

Grades 9 & 8:         27%

Grades 9, 8 & 7:     45%

Pass Rate:               96%   

Headmaster David Holland was delighted with the results, saying ‘we are so proud of this group of pupils; the top grade 9 is only meant to go to a maximum of 4% of pupils nationally, so to see our boys and girls achieve 14% at this level is exceptional. It is just reward for so much dedication and commitment by pupils, teachers and parents.
