Pupils at Chancellor’s School are celebrating an excellent set of results in their GCSE examinations this year.

The school is enjoying positive results across the board with very strong performance in a number of subjects including English, maths, science, languages, humanities, technology and computer science.

A spokesperson for the school said: “This year has seen the introduction of many new and more challenging GCSE courses graded 9 to 1 and a return to more final examinations and the school is delighted to see an impressive number of top grades being awarded to its hardworking students who have risen to the challenge.”

In religious education nearly half the cohort of pupils achieved the top 9 grade.

Pupil Aaron Mays achieved eight 9 grades and one 8 grade in his examinations.

Other pupils securing a clutch of top grades are Sorcha Drumm (six 9 grades and three 8 grades), Tom Harris (five 9s and four 8s), Louise Wootten (five 9s and four 8s) and Katie Orbell (six 9s, one 8 and two 7s).

The school is also celebrating large numbers of pupils making exceptional progress across their five years at Chancellor’s.

Andrew Mura, Sam Nicholson, Tom Pritchard, Mia Ravera, Rayhan Lalloo, Hazel Hassan and Ellie Panayiotou all achieved fantastic sets of results in this year’s examinations.

Headteacher David Croston said: “Our students should be delighted with a very impressive performance in their examinations.

“Their success as always is testament to their brilliant attitudes to learning and hard work, but also to the dedicated hard work and support of their subject teachers, family and friends.

“These results are truly a team performance.”

The school is now looking forward to welcoming back large numbers of pupils as they embark on the next step of their school career in the Sixth Form in September.
