GCSE results 2015— Amazing!!

exams 2Following on from the incredible successes at A Level last week, Bishop’s Hatfield Girls’ School students and staff were overjoyed at this year’s GCSE exam results which continue the improvement trend and are the best ever recorded by the school.

An astounding 77.68% of girls achieved 5A*-C grades including English and Maths which shows incredible success and progress in the core subjects alongside optional GCSE choices. Overall, 30% of all the GCSE grades were either A* or A, with, in addition to excellent English and Maths achievements, there was exceptional success in Biology, Chemistry, Physics, French, Geography and History.

We are particularly proud of our EBACC score of 52.68% which measures the percentage of girls achieving 6 A*-C grades in English, Maths, 2 Sciences, a Modern Foreign Language and either History or Geography. This is particularly significant as neither Modern Foreign Languages, nor History or Geography are compulsory at GCSE but girls recognise them as valuable subjects and choose them as options.
