Once again, Normanhurst is celebrating an excellent set of GCSE results for Year 11 pupils. 89% of grades achieved were at grade 4 or above, equivalent to a previous grade C or higher, with a quarter at grades 7-9, equivalent to the previous grades A*or A.
The pupils achieved particularly well in English, individual Sciences and the creative and performing arts with 100% passes in Art, Business Studies, Computer Science, French, Geography, Graphics, History, Spanish, Biology, Chemistry and Physics.
Headmistress Claire Osborn is proud of the pupils’ achievements: “Normanhurst pupils have risen to the challenge of the new GCSE courses and have demonstrated that they have the determination to succeed. Their success is very well-deserved and is a testament to their hard work and commitment. They leave Normanhurst to join some outstanding schools and colleges, as well as some apprenticeship programmes. I wish them all the very best for the future.
There were some excellent individual performances: Katy achieved 9 passes with 8 at Grades 8 or 9, Leon achieved 5 grades 7-9 and many others achieved 4 grades 7-9 among their haul.
I’m proud to be able to see pupils move onto the next stage of their education as well-rounded, motivated young people who are well-equipped for life beyond Normanhurst”.
