Pupils at Bede’s in Upper Dicker are celebrating after achieving their best ever GCSE results.

It is the fifth year in a row that the school has achieved more than 80 per cent of pupils achieving at least one A or A* grade.

Almost one in ten pupils achieved straight A or A* grades.

90 per cent of all grades were at A*-C and 40 per cent of grades at A*-A.

Individual triumphs included Jack Rickard, Emilie Stone, Chris Bowe, Georgina Callaghan, Will Churcher, Jonathan Connell, Chloe Durrant, Beth Giddings, Alice Potter and Jasmine Sayed, all of whom achieved straight A and A* grades.

Bede’s Headmaster Dr Richard Maloney said: “By enabling young people to pursue passions personal to them, while working with teachers operating creatively and at the very highest level, Bede’s and its pupils have once again shown that our philosophy of holistic, personalised education consistently delivers success.”

John Tuson, Bede’s Academic Deputy Head, said: “I am extremely proud that ours is a school where exceptional individuals can achieve outstanding results while all pupils find an area in which to specialise.”
