2017 EHS GCSE Results show another improvement on 2016

We are delighted to announce that results have improved again in key subject areas.  In a volatile year nationally our English and Maths results saw another steady increase and science and language achievements also improved.  This is a result of the firm foundations we are building as well as the developments across the school that are now bearing fruit. 

The core subjects achieved high results with 77% and 78% of students passing their English and Maths qualifications respectively.  The proportion of students achieving good pass in both subjects improved to 70%.  In each subject, 8 students achieved the prestigious grade 9, equivalent to the very top few nationally.  Building on previous years we have again closed the gaps in attainment in a number of key areas such as boys to girls and disadvantaged to other students.

Student Ellis Wisdom achieved Grade 9 in both Maths and English Literature “I’m pretty happy right now. I put the work in but I always thought that a Grade 9 was untouchable!”

Lily Ratty who achieved 11 A*s and As (7 - 9 included) said she couldn't be more pleased and said all her teachers had been incredibly supportive to get her where she wanted to be. She wants to study English Literature, French and Fashion at A level at Esher College.

Student Daniel Evans not only achieved 9 A* and As but also achieved a Progress score of 3.9 - achieving on average almost 4 grades above his expected levels.  He was speechless but also very excited "I'm really looking forward to studying Interactive Media and Game Design at Kingston College"

Mr Boddington said ‘We are really pleased with these results that come in a time of considerable uncertainty across the country.  Our students and staff have worked really hard and this is evident in the outcomes that they have achieved.  The skills and knowledge that our students have gained throughout their time here are invaluable and we continue to raise our standards across all aspects of school life.  Our most able students have again achieved great results and our more vulnerable students have also made significant gains.  They leave our school well prepared for the challenges that lie ahead and we wish them well in their future careers.’
