3rd Instance of Outstanding GCSE and IGCSE Results

Congratulations to QP’s Upper Fifth pupils who have excelled, achieving an outstanding set of GCSE and IGCSE results.

Seventy pupils achieved at least eight 9-7 (equivalent A*A) grades, while one-fifth of the year gained straight 9-7 (A*A) grades.

Amongst the results are some outstanding individual successes, including: eleven 9-8 (A*) grades for Ellie Buttery, Imogen de Csillery, Rosie Gordon, Daniel Livermore and Lucy Sexton; at least ten 9-8 (A*) for Oluwatise Ajayi and Clemmie Manning; plus at least nine 9-8 (A*) for Michael Chen, Olivia Clarke, David Hammond, Harriet Lawson, Sam Martin, Perrin Tong and Michael Wong.  Our congratulations to them all.

Departmentally there are particularly strong results in the sciences with 95% of Biology and Chemistry results being graded 9-7 (A*A); in Geography and Religious Studies the 9-7 results were 92% and 87% respectively and within the creative and technical subjects both Music and Computer Science secured 80% 9-7 grades.

Most GCSE and IGCSE examinations now receive the new 9-1 grades. The new grading system has made it harder for pupils across the country to gain the top grades, so it is particularly pleasing to see many QP pupils doing so very well under the new system.

Dr Richard Maloney, Headmaster of QP School, said: “I am full of praise for our Upper Fifth pupils who have done brilliantly in their GCSE exams this year. Their successes, and the sterling efforts made by their teachers to draw the best from each student, are to be commended. Pupils at QP benefit from an all-round education and it is especially pleasing to know that they participate and enjoy success in activities beyond the academic curriculum, getting involved in sports, music, theatre and much more besides. We are looking forward to welcoming back our talented pupils as they move into the Sixth Form in the new school year.”
