Students at Luckley House School are celebrating today (12 August) as they have excelled yet again in their GCSE exams with 20% of all grades at Grade 9 (A*+ equivalent), 61% at Grade 7-9 (A*+ to A equivalent) and 74% at 6-9 (A*+ to B equivalent). This is an outstanding achievement, particularly given the difficult circumstances presented to this cohort over the course of their GCSE studies.
Computer Science students were on top form, with 100% Grade 7 to 9, with 86% of these at the highest grade 9. Over 80% at Grade 7-9 was also achieved by students taking History (85%), PE (82%), Music (83%), Food & Nutrition (89%) and Drama (81%).
Amongst the celebrations for students achieving a clean sweep of Grade 7 and above is Charlotte M who achieved nine 9s and one 7. Charlotte said: “I don’t quite know how to put into words what Luckley has done for me. I have got the results I have always dreamed of and it’s all thanks to the wonderful staff and support system in place!”
Hannah D achieved an excellent set of results, including a 9 in Drama. Hannah said: “I am so happy with my results. I am celebrating by spending the day in the Whitty Theatre helping Mr Bamber (Theatre Manager) with the technical aspects of a summer school production”. Hannah will be taking Drama as one of her A level subjects at Luckley, specialising in the technical aspects of theatre, including sound and lighting.
Mrs Areti Bizior, Head said: “I am thrilled with this outstanding set of GCSE results, which is a culmination of hard work and resilience from our students, coupled with excellent teaching by our dedicated and talented team at Luckley. Our students have shown endeavour and positivity thought their GCSE studies and their kindness, friendship and support towards each other has really shone through. They deserve every success both with their GCSE results today and in the future. We are very proud of all they have achieved and we are excited to see them continue to flourish with us here in the Sixth Form.”
