22nd August 2019 — Overall, top tier grades were received in a total of 20 subjects, with 80% of pupils gaining five or more grades at 9 – 4 (or A* - C).
The exceptional results were achieved across a variety of subject areas such as science, languages, history and the arts – illustrating the great depth of talent across all quarters of Sibford School.
Sibford School Head, Toby Spence said: “We have been delighted to welcome back so many members of the Sibford School community to celebrate some outstanding results in our GCSE examinations today. Many pupils have exceeded their expected grades and we are very proud of the tremendous commitment to their studies that they have demonstrated.”
Special mention goes to Ethan who received an outstanding result of 9 in seven subjects, including Biology, Chemistry, Physics, English and Maths, plus an additional A* in Further Maths.
Charlotte also received 9s and 8s across nine different subject areas, including top marks in Physics. This follows her second-place success at the 2019 National Engineering Competition for Girls in March of this year. Both students will go on to study for their A-Levels at Sibford School Sixth Form.
Toby continues “We are thrilled that a good number of pupils have achieved the very highest grades – with Ethan and Charlotte achieving 20 grade 9s and 8s between them – an outstanding achievement. What is a particular pleasure are the strong set of grades across all subject areas, underpinning the great breadth of talent we have across school.”
