Hard work and commitment paid off as students at Seaford Head celebrated the school’s best ever GCSE results.
An impressive 71 per cent of pupils achieved five A*-C grades including Maths and English. This represents an improvement of nine per cent on the results of 2013. This set of outstanding results is even more remarkable when you consider the changes made to GCSEs nationally.
The school is especially delighted with the performance of many individual subjects and students. At GCSE, 100 per cent of students achieved an A*-C grade in French, Biology and Chemistry, with more than 90 per cent achieving an A*-C grade in Physics, Religious Studies and PE.
Four out of five students gained a C grade or above in GCSE English Language and Maths.
The number of top grades awarded was especially pleasing, with 215 A* grades and 449 A grades in total across subjects, which means 27 per cent of all grades awarded were A* or A.
Many individual students did exceptionally well with 38 students achieving eight A*-A grades.
Two students from the school also achieved top student awards from Plumpton College for their vocational qualifications; Luke Harman for Motor Vehicle Studies and Nick Jenner for Agriculture.
The staff and governors are absolutely delighted with these results and would like to congratulate all Seaford Head students on their achievements this year.
In the year that Seaford Head School is launching its Sixth Form, these GCSE results provide a great platform to start from and the school expect fantastic results in two year’s time.
