The Chase Celebrates Its Best Ever Results!
by The Chase - Thursday, 11 September 2014, 03:02 PM
 

Students and staff of The Chase are celebrating the school’s best ever examination results.

 

 

 

 

Key Stage 4: GCSEs

74% of students achieved 5 grades A* to C (including English and Maths), the gold standard by which all school are measured. 78% achieved 5 grades A*-C.

32% of grades were at A*/A.

40% of students achieved the EBacc, the suite o subjects students need to get to be able to go to Oxford and Cambridge.

The school’s top performing students included Joseph Mead and Simon Wikeley , who both gained 10 A* grades, with Jake Walker, Rosanna Lewis, Lauren James gaining 8 A* grades and Anthony Eyles 7 A* grades. The school’s results were the best in South Worcestershire and were only bettered by two other Worcester schools in the north.

Key Stage 5: A Levels

85% of grades were at A*-C, with a stunning 31% at grades A* or A.

The average point score per student was well above national averages, at 899. 22% of students secured at least grades AAB or higher in at least 2 ‘facilitating subjects’, securing places at the best universities in the country. 

Almost all The Chase students secured the university places they had dreamed of, or traded up to even better places.

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. Benjamin Londesbrough secured an astonishing 4 A* grades, with Holly Perrett securing an equally impressive 3 A* grades and two A grades. 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 complemented 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.”

Headteacher’s Statement 09/09/14

Staff and students at The Chase have quickly returned to normal schooling following an incident at the school the previous day.

At the start of school on Monday 8th September an assailant entered a classroom where a morning register was taking place. In the resulting incident a member of the teaching staff and a 13 year old female student received superficial injuries from a knife.

The school contacted the local police immediately. Police gave immediate and extensive support to the school. The immediate concern was that the assailant was still on the school site. Students were kept in their lessons for an extra hour while police conducted a thorough search of the site.

At the commencement of the search both the police and school leadership team were confident that students were safe and normal lessons resumed at 11.00 a.m.

After an extensive search of the area by police the assailant was located and arrested and remains in police custody.

The school remained open throughout the day and opened as normal this morning. Details of the incident were given to students by form tutors, but otherwise lessons have proceeded as normal. We have endeavoured to give students as much information as we can, but as this is now a police investigation we are limited in what we can say. We continue to assure our students that they are safe.

Both the member of staff and student hurt in the incident returned to school this morning and both resumed normal lessons.

The school has provided an opportunity for all students, either directly or indirectly involved in the incident to receive counselling and other support.

Yesterday was a very distressing day for everyone at the school. Our thoughts and prayers have been with everyone who was directly involved in the incident and we are relieved that they are able to join us today as we return to normal school life. Staff were very professional throughout the day and supported students well. Students showed their usual high level of maturity and remained calm at all times.

The school received an incredible level of support from our local community, which is exactly what you expect from the people of Malvern. Parents were obviously very concerned about what had happened and were patient with us as we sought to allay their fears. The interest shown by people from around the world placed an incredible strain on our communication resources and we were thankful for the understanding shown by everyone concerned. We would like to give special thanks to District Councillor Melanie Baker, who arrived shortly after the event and gave us invaluable assistance in liaising with parents. The school received extensive support from officers from Worcestershire County Council and offers of help from Malvern Hills District Council, and we are grateful to both. The support from the local police was exceptional”
