GCSE RESULTS: AUGUST 24th 2017
I am delighted to announce that on the back of our record breaking Sixth Form results, this Summer’s Year 11 students have also achieved the schools best ever set of GCSE grades. 2017 is a vintage year for Honiton Community College. The success achieved is just reward for the hard work and commitment from students and staff alike.
Two thirds of the cohort achieved the equivalent of 5+A*-C inc. English and Maths, with a quarter of all entries being A*/A. This is a superb achievement for a non-selective, comprehensive school. Indeed, we pride ourselves on our inclusive approach, working together, as a community, to provide a first-class education that helps develop rounded students that are ready to take on the challenges of adulthood.
We are extremely proud of the whole year group and aim to ensure every student makes expected, or better than expected, progress. The following top performing students were:
Jake Matthews: 2x9s, 1x8, 4xA*, 3xA and 1 distinction*
Ellie Beigan: 3x9, 4xA*, 2xA, 1 distinction
Amberina Askew: 2x9, 1x8, 4xA*, 2xA and 1 distinction*
Chloe Keitch: 1x8, 2x7, 3xA*, 3xA and 1 distinction*
On behalf of staff and governors I wish all of our students every success in the future, many of whom will be returning in September to take up their post-16 studies. No doubt aiming to replicate the success of this year’s Year 13!
Finally, I would like to thank the staff and governors for all their hard work and support. In a year when tests are tougher than ever, it’s their commitment and professionalism that has enabled my team and I to ensure the school is performing so well, at all key stages, and is truly a great place to work, study and learn.
