Fifth Year of Best Ever GCSE Results at Bede’s
Pupils at Bede's in Upper Dicker were overjoyed to discover that they had achieved the School's best ever GCSE results this morning.
Bede's has now achieved best-ever GCSE grades for five years in a row with over 80% of pupils achieving at least one A or A* grade in 2014 and almost one in ten pupils achieving straight A or A* grades.
Individual triumphs included Jack Rickard, Emilie Stone, Chris Bowe, Georgina Callaghan, Will Churcher, Jonathan Connell, Chloe Durrant, Beth Giddings, Alice Potter and Jasmine Sayed, all of whom achieved straight A and A* grades.
With 90% of all grades at A*-C and 40% of grades at A*-A, particularly successful departments included Bede's Art School, where 87% of grades were A*-A, the English department, where 57% of pupils achieved A*-A grades, and Bede's Music department, where 40% of all grades were at A*.
These results come in the wake of Bede's record-breaking A Level grades last week, where 73% of all grades were at A*-B, and demonstrate five years of improvement in the School's academic performance.
Bede's Headmaster Dr Richard Maloney said, "By enabling young people to pursue passions personal to them, while working with teachers operating creatively and at the very highest level, Bede's and its pupils have once again shown that our philosophy of holistic, personalised education consistently delivers success."
Mr John Tuson, Bede's Academic Deputy Head, said of the results, "I am extremely proud that ours is a school where exceptional individuals can achieve outstanding results while all pupils find an area in which to specialise."
