Executive Headteacher Mike Boddington said:
Esher High School has again achieved results significantly above average this year. Amongst reports that GCSEs were recognised as being harder than previous years, with a focus on the final exams rather than coursework, the reported national pass rate is 67.3% while 72.7% of all Esher High School entries were awarded this grade. Added to which 23.5% of our students entries were awarded grades between 9 - 7, as compared to 20.8% nationally.
Headteacher Mr Boddington said of the results " We are very happy with the results of the students this year. Our students have achieved really positive outcomes and built on the success of previous years, ably supported by their teachers and the expertise of staff in the school. Overall 68% of students achieved grade 4 or above in both English and maths, and early indicators are that their overall progress here was positive across their wide range of subjects. We are particularly pleased that this will enable our students to go on to work and study on even more challenging courses or training that will enhance their life chances.
There were individuals who achieved brilliantly as ever, with 10 students getting 3 or more grades 9 of which half were boys. We are proud of our diversity and so are delighted that many of our disadvantaged children made great progress too with early indications that these performed better than others nationally.
Our school continues to grow in strength and these results highlight the firm academic and wider foundations that we are building here. The long term trend is a positive one and we are providing a great education for all our students, and will be welcoming a new, full cohort into Year 7 soon"
