GCSE English among top performers for The Bicester School

The Bicester School celebrated a strong set of exam results for a second time in August as students received their GCSE grades.

An impressive 82% of the 167 students collecting their results achieved A*-C in English, beating the national average by 22%.

Headteacher Tony Rushworth commented: “We are delighted that 82% of our Year 11 cohort achieved A*-C in English. The overall result of 55% A*-C English and Maths matches the national average with a progress score which is 0.2 higher than 2015.”

A number of students achieved seven or more of the very top grades of A* and A. This included Amelia Ait-Tales (nine A*/As), Leah Stanley (ten A*/As), Rebecca Clamp (eight A*/As) William Hinton (seven A*/As) and Louis O’Connell (seven A*/As), to name a few of the exceptional performers.

Tony added: “The year group included an unusually high number of disadvantaged students and we were delighted that 58% of these students achieved the headline figure which is significantly above the national average.”
