We are delighted to announce our best ever GCSE results, with 56% of students attaining five or more grades at C and above including English and maths. These results reflect the continual improvement in standards at the school in the last two years.
Many students achieved top grades, and outstanding individual results include the following: Ella Keswick-Clark, who has achieved 7 A*, 3 A and 2 B grades; Matthew Dickers with 4 A*, 6 A, and 1 C grade; Poppy Alan with 3 A*, 4A, 4 B and 1 C grade at L3 (equivalent to an AS level); Amy Chan with 1 A*, 6 A, 3 B and 1 C grade (again L3). Eleanor Minter with 3 A* and 2 A and 6 B and 1 C grade; Ron Ramos with 2 A*, 2 A 7 B and 1 C (Level 3).
Other exceptional performers are Charlotte Lewis with 2 A* and 3 A grades; Lilly McCabe with 1 A* and 4 A grades; James McKevitt with 2 A* and 2 A grades. (All with more than ten grades in total at C or above.)
Charlotte Richards, whose eleven C and above results include 5 A and A* grades, has succeeded in securing her place at Welbeck College, the “army sixth form”, where she will undertake officer training.
Whilst these results represent high attainment, our congratulations also go to the many students whose results show impressive levels of progress, through their hard work and dedication.
Miss King, Head of School, commented: “This is a most pleasing set of results. Our students can be justifiably proud of their achievements as they move on to their post-16 studies. The exceptional staff here have worked effectively as a team so that this year all subjects have exceeded, and in some cases doubled, their results from 2014 and previously. We are confident that Chaucer School’s GCSE results for 2015 will compare favourably with those of other high schools in Kent, and this will be evident in the government performance tables when they are published in the autumn. My good wishes go to all the students, staff and parents who have made this school again so successful.”
