GCSE Results 2015

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.”

Non Uniform Day for Nepal

This event took place in school on 7 May 2015 and we are very pleased to announce that students and staff raised a total of £185.47.

We will shortly be sending a cheque to the Disasters Emergency Committee (DEC) who are co-ordinating help for the victims of the recent Nepal earthquake.

Message from the Head of School


Chaucer Technology School currently consists of the Year 11 cohort of students who are due to take their GCSE qualifications in 2015. With effect from 31st August 2015 the school will close permanently.  Other cohorts of students departed during 2014 either as part of the normal course of events (Years 11 and 13) or they were reallocated new places at alternative schools. The decision to close the school was made by Kent County Council, after a period of consultation, and is largely due to financial considerations.

The standards in the school continue to rise and the Local Authority and the staff at the school are determined to ensure that the current and final cohort of Year 11 enjoy every opportunity possible to achieve very strong examination results and the exceptional personal and social development  opportunities. The staff to student ratio is generous and enables the full curriculum to be provided as it was for these students in Year 10.
