School league tables released today have showcased Highfields' whopping 9% increase in performance - as it looks forward to another record-breaking year of GCSE results.
Last year’s results were the best ever for the school, with 73% of pupils achieving A*-C grades - including in English and Mathematics - and 51% achieving the top A* and A grades. Its top attainers included Navneet Marway, who gained 10A* and 2A gradings; Anna Felton, who achieved 10A*s and 1A and twins Kent and Owen Stavenuiter, who collectively achieved 12A*s, 9As and 3Bs.
The results mean Highfields now sits in fifth position in the city's school league tables. The tables have been released as the school looks forward to another successful year after a fantastic set of mock exam results put it on course to produce its best ever GCSE grades.
Mrs N Clifton, Head of Upper School, said: “Last year’s results were the best ever at the school and we are delighted that this year’s look set to be even better.
“The mock exam results show that 75% of students are set to achieve 5A*-C grades, including in English and Mathematics, this year which is a wonderful achievement.
“We are incredibly proud of how hard our Year 11 students have worked towards their exams and the focused and conscientious manner with which they approached their mock exams has put them in good stead for the real thing.
“Particular mention should go to Kaylum McCann, Gurjeevan Sidhu, Mark Morey and Simran Koretaine, who all look set to achieve the highest grades this summer, but we are very proud of all of our students and excited that we are on course for our best ever GCSE results.”
