The Chase has once again delivered a strong set of GCSE examination results with 75% of all entries being awarded at least a grade 4 (equivalent to grade C) which is significantly higher than the national average of 68%. Approximately one third of all entries resulted in the highest 7-9 grades (equivalent to A/A*).
The students performance this year is considered to be even more impressive under the circumstances, with grade boundaries returning to pre Covid levels, and the proportion of the highest grades falling nationally as a result.
The highest performing students included Zoe Day, Micaiah Huish, Charlotte Jones and Amber Kelly who all achieved at least 4 top grade 9s across their different subjects.
‘We are so proud with all of our students GCSE performance this year’ says Mike Fieldhouse, Headteacher at The Chase. ‘The students have demonstrated a remarkable resilience and adaptability during their time in secondary education and these GCSE results are testament to all of their hard work and commitment to their studies over the past 5 years. They should be very proud of their efforts. We must not underestimate the impact of the Covid pandemic on their studies. The school has done a tremendous amount of work in supporting many of these students with additional tuition, both in and outside of school time. Our teachers have again shown their immense experience and ability in preparing the students for these examinations under very difficult circumstances. Well done to everybody involved’.
