GCSE Results 2018
The Hayesbrook School is again celebrating Year 11 results day. Initial analysis indicates excellent achievements by many students as well as impressive performance in a number of measures and subjects.
Hayesbrook students have achieved very well in the first year of the reformed GCSE subjects. An impressive 50% of curriculum subjects have improved achievement in the new ‘tougher’ reformed GCSE subjects, which were introduced to increase challenge. We are particularly proud of the significantly increased achievement in Biology, Chemistry, Modern Foreign Languages and Computer Science.
The percentage of total ‘highest’ grades (5-9 or A*-B) has also increased to a fantastic 42% - representing a two year upward trend. In particular we congratulate Ross Bray, Tom Gammon, George Hines, Oliver Holloway, Jack Howell, Samuel Morton and Toby Moss, all of whom achieved A*/A or the equivalent highest grades in 5 or more of their subjects. We are able to congratulate a large number of boys progressing onto The Hayesbrook Sixth Form and other local 16+ providers as a result of their individual achievements.
Principal, Daniel Hatley said: “I am delighted to be able to congratulate so many boys on their considerable and well deserved achievements. The change in the landscape, this year with the first set of results in the reformed GCSEs makes our students’ achievements even more impressive. The new assessment framework means that many students will have sat in excess of 25 papers all of which require them to demonstrate even greater competence and an increased depth of understanding, than in previous years. We are really looking forward to welcoming them back to the sixth form to continue their journey to the university or career of their choice. This year’s results are once again a reflection of the dedication, commitment and sheer hard work of our brilliant students, fantastic staff and the excellent support of the families we work with”.
