A record-breaking GCSE results haul is being celebrated by staff and students at Cranleigh School today (Thursday August 20).
Twelve students were awarded nine or more straight A*s: Toby Chesser; Zoe Dixon; Lizzy Gordon; Isaac Hathaway; Eloise Hood; Will Mundy; Christian Oldfield; Charlotte O’Neil; Ellen Talbot; Emily Thornton-Wood; Sophie Thornton-Wood and Eleanor Williamson.
Almost two thirds of overall grades being A to A* and 100 per cent of students gaining five GCSEs at A* to C grade.
The overall pass rate was 98 per cent and all pupils passed the core subjects of maths and English. A record-breaking 88 per cent of pupils achieved grades at A* to B.
Director of studies, David Boggitt, said: “In another year when experts anticipated GCSEs to be more demanding, with higher grade boundaries and tougher papers, Cranleigh is delighted to have shown consistently high results.
“This is a reflection of the huge amount of hard work invested by both students and staff over the entire year.”
Headmaster Martin Reader said: “These results, as impressive as last year’s, are an excellent demonstration of the success of the Cranleigh approach to education, where a busy timetable matches achievement outside the classroom with academic excellence.”
The majority of students will remain at Cranleigh to join the Sixth Form and continue their studies to A Level.
