Students at Chipping Campden School praised for their achievements

STUDENTS at Chipping Campden School successfully navigated the GCSE exam shake-up, having achieved a strong set of results.

A quarter of papers across the unreformed subjects were graded A* to A and 20 per cent of the reformed English and maths papers were awarded the new top GCSE band (grades 7 to 9).

The percentage of students achieving the new standard pass was also high with over 85 per cent of English papers and over 75 per cent of maths papers, making the grade.

Among those who achieved the gold standard grade were Gemma Clark in both subjects, and Joseph Burrell and Olivia Thackway.

Cara Power, Jacob Smith, Maegan Anderson, Archie Santer, Lucy Clare and Holly Blyth all also excelled in the new GCSE exams and earned a string of A* and A grades elsewhere.

In total, almost 50 students in Year 11 gained between five and 12 top GCSE grades.

Principal John Sanderson said: “I’m delighted to see so many students achieving such magnificent GCSE results, particularly with the introduction of the new GCSEs in English and maths.

Staff and students have worked extremely hard and have every reason to feel proud of their achievements this year.”

“With such encouraging results we are really looking forward to welcoming so many of our students, along with almost 70 from surrounding schools, back into our sixth form in September.”
