Hurst celebrates another record breaking set of results at GCSE and A-level.
2019 GCSE results
This year's GCSE cohort have beaten all previous records. An incredible 83% of all grades were between 7 and 9, which equate to A and A* grades in the pre-reform currency. Perhaps even more impressively, 64% of grades were 8 or 9 which are benchmarked against the A* grade of the previous system.
Remarkably, the most commonly awarded GCSE grade achieved by Hurst pupils is the coveted grade 9, introduced by the government to identify the very best students nationally.
2019 A-level results
Hurst's recent pattern of year-on-year improvements continued once again at A-level, with 84% of grades awarded at either A*, A or B. This outstanding achievement has enabled the overwhelming majority of Hurst leavers to take up places at their first choice universities, inlcuding significant numbers heading for Oxford, Cambridge and the most selective Russell Group universities.
The results speak volumes for the sheer quality of academic achievement at the school and I am justifiably proud of the students.
In short, these results are superb overall and comfortably the strongest which our students have achieved at Hurst. They have not just been great people but also set the benchmark for future years.
