Pupils at Gad’s Hill School have once again achieved top marks in their GCSE examinations.

Headmaster Mr David Craggs said: “For a school that takes pupils with a broad range of abilities, these are very pleasing results indeed.

“Individual scores are exceptional but I’m equally proud of this year’s subject achievements (A*- C) – 95% of students who sat Mathematics passed; DT results were 89%; Additional Science 89%; Geography 88%; PE 100%; Computer Science 86%; History 78%; English 82% and French 76%.

“Our Combined Cadet Force continued its long-established tradition of a 100% pass rate in BTEC Teamwork and Personal Development.

“I’m delighted to congratulate our Director of Music Mr John Stone, and his hard-working scholars, on their fantastic straight A result, after the recent introduction of BTEC Music.

“Our success at GCSE is testament to the hard work and dedication of our teaching staff and of course students, many of whom go on to study A Levels at local grammar schools.”

A final congratulations goes to Gad’s Head of Senior School, Mr Paul Savage, who after a year of studying has led by example and gained an A* in Spanish.

At Gad’s 80% of the grades achieved were passes, compared with 66% nationally and 64% of students achieved five A*-C (9-4) grades, including English and Maths,
