Bede’s Students Achieve Best GCSE Results for Fourth Year
Bede's students, parents and teachers had much to celebrate on Thursday, with pupils producing yet another year of outstanding GCSE results in which an impressive 10% of students achieved straight A or A* grades.
This is the fourth straight year that Bede's has produced its best GCSE results.
The proportion of A* grades at GCSE has doubled at Bede's since 2010, with A and A*s now constituting 40% of all grades at the school. 67% of all Bede's pupils achieved at least one A or A* grade in 2013, with the percentage of A*-C grades at Bede's rising again this year, to 89%.
Particularly successful in 2013 was the school's English department, where 41% of all grades were A or A*, and its Drama and Modern Foreign Language departments, where 66% of all grades were also A or A*.
Individual triumphs this year included Bogdan Kagan from Pevensey, who achieved 11 A* grades, Azjad Al-Mubarak from Bexhill, who achieved 10 A*s and 1 A, and Anthony Bracuti from Eastbourne, who achieved 9 A* and 3 A grades.
In total, 18 Bede's students achieved straight A or A*s, making 2013 a standout year for the school.
Bede's Headmaster Dr Richard Maloney said of the results, "Everyone at Bede's is extremely proud of our GCSE pupils - and not just those who achieved top grades. These results prove, with persuasive empirical evidence, that our belief in personalised, holistic education breeds success in the classroom as well as beyond it."
