It is with great pleasure that I announce our GCSE results for 2016. 85% of students succeeded in the key headline figure of 5A*-C GCSEs including English and maths. This is a very pleasing outcome for this year group in a time of much change in the exam system and represents the 7th year in a row of over 83% of our students achieving above 80% for this bench mark.

Although the headline is indeed very pleasing, behind this lies the hard work and dedication of all of the students and staff that made this possible. The staff have worked tirelessly with the students and the students have spent a great deal of their time in extra revision sessions.

Our grades in both English and maths are far above local and national averages and I am rightly proud of the students, the staff and the middle and senior leaders behind this. English remained very high with 99% of students achieving A*-C grades. Maths is also high at 85% A*-C. This compares with national averages of 71.3% in English and 70.5% in Maths.

The percentage of pupils achieving the English Baccalaureate measure was 63%. The school’s Progress 8 score was +0.72 indicating that typically students make 0.75 of a grade more progress per subject at HACH than the national average..

In terms of progression, we are delighted that 69% of our Year 11 cohort have continued on to Sixth Form with us whilst all students have progressed to further education, training or apprenticeship.

Many other subjects achieved very high results, most notably the following, in which more than 90% of students achieved a C grade or above:

  • Art
  • Citizenship
  • Business Studies
  • Media Studies
  • Drama
  • English
  • English Language
  • Biology
  • Physics
  • Chemistry
  • Computer Science
  • ICT
  • P.E.
  • Product Design
  • Textiles Technology
  • Sociology
  • ECDL

I am extremely proud of the students and of the staff who guided them to success. I would like to thank the parents for their usual support of the school, enabling us to keep moving forwards. Lastly, I do hope the following students will forgive me for mentioning them personally, but they really did achieve some excellent results and deserve personal recognition for the high number of A/A* grades that they achieved:
