Excellent GCSE results

Our Head Teacher, Dr Earps, said she was “absolutely delighted” with the 2019 GCSE grades.

“The results are excellent across our wide range of subjects and we’re so pleased that our students’ hard work has paid off.

“We’re particularly pleased that the effort we have put in to improve our academic offering has seen another increase in top grades with a 100 per cent pass rate in ten subjects.”

Speaking on results day, Dr Earps said Queen’s – which also reported outstanding 2019 A Level results – was looking forward to introducing a raft of changes to its provision for students from September 2019.

“We’re certain these will produce yet another improvement in our exam grades next year,” she added.

Individual success stories in 2019

Isobel was among the top performers at Queen’s in 2019 with nine top grades (nine) and one eight.

“I’m very pleased and was only one mark off a top grade in Maths,” she said.

Isobel is now going on to take A Levels in Biology, Chemistry and English Literature and then hopes to study Medicine or Biology at university.

Rohan is taking his A Levels at Queen’s after an outstanding set of results.

He achieved nine passes at the top grade nine and also earned an A* in Further Mathematics.

Rohan is planning to study Maths, Further Maths, Chemistry and Physics from next month and may also take Computing.

“It’ll be nice not to study so many subjects when we come back,” he said.

Twins Oliver and Toby will continue their studies together as they move on to A Levels.

Oliver achieved 11 passes, including five nines, with Toby passing ten subjects, including two top grades.

So is there any rivalry between the pair?

“There used to be,” said Toby. “But now we concentrate on setting our own targets.”

Oliver would like to eventually become a research scientist or doctor while Toby has his sights set on becoming an actor or working in the media.

He has starred in numerous Queen’s production and already played a leading role in the film ‘We Can Be Heroes’ alongside top names such as Alison Steadman.

Jo, who earned 11 passes, is looking forward to taking her A Levels at Queen’s and is planning to study Geography, Biology and one other subject, yet to be decided.

Emma Stock starred at Crufts in March and it was no surprise that her faithful friend Athena was alongside her on results day.

At Crufts, the pair came first in Graduate Agility in the 12-17 age group and then won overall - coming first against all competitors in all age groups and all heights of dog. They have already qualified for the 2020 event.

After receiving her GCSE results today, Emma is going on to study Animal Management and would love to eventually work with animals in some capacity.
