20th August 2020 — Year 11 pupils at University College School in Hampstead celebrated a superb set of GCSE qualifications today. 19 pupils achieved straight 9 grades and 53 pupils achieved a set of grades which included only 8s and 9s. Pupils studying English Language, English Literature, German, Ancient Greek, Mandarin, Music, DT and Drama all achieved at least a grade 7 in these subjects.

Mark Beard, Headmaster of the UCS Foundation was pleased with the results. He commented, “Around 80% of grades were 8 or 9. I am delighted for the pupils after what has been an extremely challenging period. They worked so hard throughout their GCSE courses up to lockdown and did so whilst fully committing to our impressive cultural, sporting and performing arts scenes. I hope they are proud of these results.”

UCS has recently expanded its bursary provision which makes education at UCS more accessible than ever before. Year 11 bursary pupils achieved an average grade of 8.5.

This Year 11 cohort will start their Sixth Form studies at UCS in early September and will be joined by around 60 girls in the co-educational Sixth Form.
