Students at Eggar’s School have achieved their best ever set of GCSE results this year, with 76% achieving A* - C with English and Mathematics. The English and Mathematics results were again outstanding with English achieving 86% and maths 83% A*-C, with a third of all students achieving A*-A. The levels of progress the students have made overall are significantly above schools nationally.
Head Teacher, Patrick Sullivan, commented:
“We are thrilled with these results, they are a reflection of the total commitment by the staff and students, and will place us ‘significantly’ above national results. The Year 11 students worked really hard and this is a reward for that commitment. Results in English and Mathematics were outstanding, as were results in the Foundation subjects. These were either in line or above national results, with most way above. This includes French achieving 97%, Spanish and Graphics 83%, Resistant Materials and PE 80% A*-C, Statistics 100% A*-C and 82% A*-A, Geography 79%, and History and ICT 73%.
Amongst the top performers were Louis Kennett, Roman Shkunov, Edward Linton, Mishca Gandhi, Adam Bannister, Elliot Milner, Anshu Pandey, Kieran Becker Davies, Lucy Steadman, Holly Cove, Holly Dowds, Neelesh Prasad, Loius San Pedro, Bethany Garrett, Abigail Jinks, Alice Mealing, all of whom gained fantastic results with 7 or more A*-A grades in their result sets, which are exceptional achievements.
Staff have worked unbelievably hard as a team and their tremendous commitment has made the difference for so many of our students who have put outstanding effort into their work to achieve these fantastic results. We are both delighted and hugely proud of them.
A very successful Yr 7 Fun Run, in aid of @SudepAction in memory of Becky a former student. A great way to raise awareness and funds for this worthy charity. https://t.co/tI8BYbbLdU 8:24 AM - 19 Jun 2018
