GCSE result success for students


Highfields is celebrating yet another outstanding set of GCSE results - with 109 students achieving the highest gradings of 7 or above in English or Maths.

A total of 71% of students achieved a standard pass in both English and maths, whilst half of all students achieved the new strong pass in both subjects.

Thirty students achieved the highest Grade 9 rating in English Literature and English Language, out of just 13,000 nationally, whilst Gurkeerat Sandhu attained a 9 grading in English Literature, English Language and Maths - one of just 2,000 students nationally to do so. He also achieved another 5 A* and two A grades. 

Sixty percent of students achieved a Grade 7 and above, or an A* and A, whilst 32% of students got three or more 7-9 or A* and A grades. (Grade 7 is equivalent to an A grade/ Grade 8 is equivalent to A* and Grade 9 is the new highest attainment grade)

Additionally, special congratulations go to Tasha Bagri, Jeevan Bains, Akaal Basra, Jacob Davis, Ekrahh Dawood, Emma Deakin, Shiv Julka, Emily Round, Tamzin Sandhu, Davinder Singh and Simran Uppal, who all achieved 11 grades of 7-9, A* or A.

Mrs N Clifton, Head of Upper School, said: “We are very proud of the effort and achievement of all students and staff. I would like to thank all parents for their hard work and continued support and wish our students all the very best of luck for the future.”
