North Bridge House Senior students celebrate GCSE achievements
27 August, 2019
Students from North Bridge House Senior Hampstead are celebrating excellent GCSE results , with over 97% achieving a “good pass” at the new Grade 4+ and, most impressively, 54% achieving a Grade 7 or above (the equivalent of an ‘A’ or higher).
Overall, 31% of all grades achieved were an 8 or 9, the latter being the equivalent of an A** to show exceptional performance.
While a significant 15% of all grades achieved were a 9 – compared to 4.5% nationally – a remarkable number of grades were awarded at 7+ in the sciences, totalling 95% in Biology, 85% in Chemistry and 90% in Physics. An impressive 45% of students achieved the top Grade 9 in Physics, continuing to build on the school’s outstanding performance in this field.
The school’s impressive number of high grades continued in Maths, with 40% of students awarded an 8 or 9. 81% of students achieved a “strong pass” at Grade 5+ in both English and Maths.
NBH Senior Hampstead also saw particularly high results across languages, with 69% of grades awarded at 7+ in French and 62% in Spanish.
Star student Anders Erlandson (pictured centre) particularly excelled, gaining a complete set of nine Grade 9s across a range of subjects, including Geography, History, Latin and Spanish.
Anders is one of very few pupils to score so highly across the country and is looking forward to continuing his education with A Level studies in Biology, Chemistry, Geography and History.
High performers also included Head Girl, Francesca Peluso, who achieved an entire set of Grades 7 to 9 in addition to the A* she was awarded in Italian last year.
Brendan Pavey, Head of North Bridge House Senior School, said, “It is a pleasure to celebrate with our staff and students who have worked so hard to achieve these results.
“My congratulations go to all of our GCSE students and I wish them every success as they take their next steps into A Levels and beyond.
“I look forward to welcoming a number of our students to our sister school, North Bridge House Senior Canonbury, for Sixth Form in September.”
