This summer’s GCSE results brought excitement and pleasure for pupils and staff at Cranleigh School.

The 16-year-old pupils at the school achieved very strong results across a wide range of subjects, with 32 per cent of the exams passed at the top A* grade, and 62 per cent with an A* or A grade.

27 of the year group managed to register A* or A grades in all their exams, and four pupils achieved the distinction of A* grades in all the subjects they took this summer: Charlie Gilbert, Tom Standen-Jewell, Jonathan Stocks, and Olivia Hartley.

Cranleigh Schools head, Guy Waller, said: “We are delighted to see our Year 11 pupils do so positively at GCSE.

“We offer a very broad curriculum here – most taking 11 subjects – in preparation for A level and for university.

“This year group has laid some very strong foundations for the future.

“With the vast majority of them returning to Cranleigh the week after next, we can look forward to their academic future here with great confidence.”

The overall pass rate was 100 per cent, with 100 per cent of the pupils also gaining five A* to C grades. The percentage of those pupils gaining five A* to C including English and Maths was 98 per cent.
