Hampton High GCSE Results Summer 2019
It was a real privilege to spend the morning with our year 11 students as they came in and collected their exam results today.
65% students secured grades 9-4*, with 38% securing grades 9-5*, in line with targets set at the beginning of their GCSE course. 11% of our students achieved grades 9 – 7*. For the second year in a row, this cohort of students beat the targets set them. 35 grade 9s were awarded to our students this year. This is an increase on last year, with a smaller cohort sitting the exams.
Several students stand out for particular congratulations.
Tom Park secured grade 9 in all 9 of his subjects. Last year, only 732 students achieved this nationally. Marcel Holowienko, Jacob Muncey, Reea Soz and Romando Sula all achieved high total and average point scores across their subjects.
Other students with outstanding attainment are Annalee James, Andre Wheeler, Ibtihaz Shahid, Sami Nawab, Abi Fisher, Levan Mastrocola, Elliot Mitchell and James Wood.
As an inclusive comprehensive school, it is important to celebrate how much progress from original starting points our students make. Students who made progress well above their targets are Elliot Mitchell, Niole Caldas Missi, Sanaz Akhlaghi, Annalee James, David Leonjev, Andrei Filipas, Marcel Holowienko, Reea Soz, Loic Wood and Ben Chester. Joel Ampaire and Jiahua Lui both secured good grades across their subjects, despite moving to Hampton High from abroad in Years 11 and 10 respectively.
We also have a group of students who showed outstanding resilience in the face of adversity. These students continued to study, despite grappling with very challenging circumstances. It is testimony to their strength of character, the year group around them and the support of staff and families, that these students have been able to celebrate today.
All of these success stories sum up what Hampton High is about. We are aspirational for our students and will leave no stone unturned in supporting them to achieve. Our students learn to support each other and not give up when things become challenging.
This is the year group which had to cope with the most change during their time with us. It is to their credit that they have been able to succeed and now embark on the next stage of their education. Many of them will be staying with us for their sixth form studies and we look forward to them building on the fantastic success of the year 13 cohort in their A levels last week.
