Students and staff at Chailey School are celebrating another outstanding set of GCSE results again this year with achievement at record levels in many areas.
Helen Key, Head Teacher, commented ‘I am extremely proud of the students and all of their achievements. These results are a testament to their hard work, the dedication of the teaching and support staff, and of course the care and support given by their families.’
Results were very strong across the curriculum. In English and Maths 52% of students achieved at least a grade 5 in the new reformed and tougher GCSEs, with 74% achieving at least a grade 4 in both subjects. A new grade 4 is equivalent to a C under the previous GCSE grades.
Performance in the top grades A/A* (7-9 for English and Maths) was also very pleasing. In total there were 358 A grades awarded – 24% of all total grades.
A particular mention must go to the English Department where 33% of students achieved at least a grade 7 (equivalent to an A/A*), 72% achieved at least a grade 5 (a new strong pass) and 87% achieved at least a 4 (equivalent to a C or above). In Physics, Chemistry and Biology 100% of students gained a C or above, and in History, German, Drama, Music, Core Science, and Resistant Materials at least 80% of students attained an A*- C grade. 72% of students achieved an A*- C in at least one Foreign Language and 78% of students achieved an A*- C in at least one humanities subject.
Chailey School is very proud of its commitment to a broad and balanced curriculum and is particularly proud that 80% of students entered the full English Baccalaureate, with 50% of students achieving it.
As a truly comprehensive school we are proud of the achievements of all the students but a special mention must go to the following students:
John Newnham achieved 11 grade A*/A grades with a 9 in both English and Maths, and full marks in all Maths papers. In total 7 students gained A*/A in all subject areas. These were John Newnham, Alex Monson, Joshua Kianfar, Louise Gardiner, Thomas Caughley, Toby Wride and Rosie Pruden.
