GCSE Results


Embracing Every Opportunity

After many months of nervously awaiting their GCSE results, students in Year 11 were finally able to return to school to discover the reward for their years of hard work.  This year has been one like no other and it was a great relief to all that the infamous Ofqual algorithm was finally abandoned in favour of Centre Assessed Grades.

Our Year 11 students have once again done us all proud.  Not only have they coped with all the uncertainty of the pandemic but have gone on to triumph in their GCSEs, leaving them well-prepared and ready to embrace the challenges of A Levels and Level 3 BTEC qualifications.

Whilst headline data is not being published for schools this year, their individual successes should certainly be recognised. Amongst our cohort of 157 students, 13 managed to achieve straight 9-7 in every subject they sat.  What an incredible achievement, so well done to Emily Baron, Matthew Bentley, Lottie Gaylard, Zoe Iden, Maddie Lewis, Matilda Lysaght, Seamus McCormack, Daniel Sergeant, Saffron Taylor, Sofia Giannitti, Oscar Mason, James Murray-Brooks and Mabel Perceval. Lottie and Sofia pulled off the incredible feat of achieving a grade 9 in every subject they sat – what superstars!

David Carter, Headteacher, commented “There have been many consequences of this global pandemic, including the cancellation of public examinations. This however should in no way take away from the achievements of these very special young men and women, who have worked so hard during their school careers. Their education is far more than just learning how to sit exams. No one can take away their love of learning, the knowledge and understanding acquired to date and the wonderful characteristics that make them the people they are today.  We couldn’t be prouder of them all.”

Matt Bonner, Head of Year 11, said “It has been wonderful to see our students again after so many months away from school. It has been a tremendous privilege to be their head of year and witness them grow and develop into such kind, capable and compassionate individuals. Congratulations to them all on their results today”.


The Sixth Form at SPH is open to all students in the local area, regardless of whether they have previously studied at SPH or not. Those wishing to apply should go to the website www.sphcs.co.uk, email nmcneil@sphcs.co.uk or come visit the school on Thursday 3rd September to enroll.
