The school was one of the highest performing state schools in Worcestershire and surpassed the results of some of the local independent schools. Although students did well across the board, certain students did exceptionally well.

Kirsty Anderson, Andrew Banks, Toby Birkett, Samuel Brady, Harry Davies, Peter Fahey, Thomas Greer, James Hand, Hugh Harris, Jacob Herbert, Sarah Lewis, Daniel Mead, Rebecca Noble, Emma Pallen and William Rowley all secured at least 3 A grades.
Richard Jacobs, Headteacher, said of the results:
“This has been an exceptional performance by the school. We are very proud of all the hard work our students put into their studies and very pleased that the reforms we introduced this year have allowed us to better support and challenge all of our students. The teachers of The Chase are to be complimented on securing the best results the school has ever achieved and one of the best results in the state sector in Worcester. We are now one of the most successful schools in Worcestershire and have secured our goal of giving as many students as we can the opportunity to attend the University of their choice.”
