Pupils at Hipperholme Grammar School celebrated today (August 24th) as they received their GCSE results.
This year’s results saw national changes to English language, English literature and mathematics results – with those GCSEs being awarded as numbers from 9 to 1.
The new grading system means that a 9 is the highest mark, 4 is a standard pass and 1 is the lowest mark. Other subjects continue, in the meantime, to be graded from A*-G.
Hipperholme Grammar School’s 20 pupils recorded an overall 84% pass rate of A*-Cs (including 4s and above).
A total of 95% of pupils secured 4 and above in their English literature results, with 90% in English language, and 91% in mathematics.
Jayvian Mavi was the highest scoring pupil overall, with 5A*s, 1A, one 9 and two 8s.
Harrison Layden-Fritz also performed strongly with 1A*, 5As, two 8s and one 7; as Aneesa Ishaq secured 5A*s, 1A, two 7s and one 6.
Some of the school’s younger pupils also had a taste of success, after four Year 10 students took Art GCSE a year early and all achieved A and B grades.
Jackie Griffiths, headteacher of Hipperholme Grammar School, said: “Our pupils have worked incredibly hard throughout the year and they thoroughly deserve their excellent results. We’re constantly striving to improve the education we offer to every individual and we’re looking forward to seeing how our pupils flourish.”
