GCSE joy for Merchant Taylors’ pupils
Pupils at Merchant Taylors’ are celebrating after achieving an outstanding set of GCSE results.
Of all GCSE grades awarded to boys and girls, 54% were at grade 9 to 7, the equivalent of a former A or A*, while more than a third of all examinations were awarded grades 9 to 8 and 82% of all pupils recorded at least one of those highest grades.
There were strong performances across the school in a variety of subject areas. Among the incredible individual success stories were Varshaa P and Manhita D, who both achieved a remarkable ten grade 9s, alongside Sajay J and Mayukhi M, who also achieved an additional grade 8.
Kevin Z and Lily A achieved nine grades 9s and one grade 8, as did Adam B, who also recorded an additional grade 8 within his 11 examination subjects. William C attained a spectacular eight grade 9s, two grade 8s and one grade 7, whilst Amelia H achieved an impressive eight grade 9s, one grade 8 and one grade 7.
In total, 17% of all pupils recorded 100% of grades at 7 to 9, including Drew H (seven grade 9s and three grades 8s), Douglas F (six 9s and four 8s), Kei H (seven 9s, two 8s), Lucy R (six 9s, four 8s) and Charles L (four 9s, six 8s).
Bridget Ward, Head of Merchant Taylors’ Girls’ School, said:
“Our girls can be incredibly proud of their achievements at GCSE this year and we are thrilled to see their hard work reflected in the grades they have been able to attain today.
“In the national context, where there has been a return to pre-pandemic grading and an expected reduction in the numbers of higher grades, it is especially pleasing to see that our results have not followed the national trend and that many of our girls have continued to achieve the highest grades, above the levels we saw in 2019.”
Deiniol Williams, Head of Merchant Taylors’ Boys’ School, said:
“The boys have once again done incredibly well in their GCSEs this year, the culmination of their passion for learning over the past two years and beyond.
“Their success across a wide range of subjects reflects the collective commitment to academic excellence that our pupils and staff hold dear at Merchant Taylors’ and we are pleased to see each of them maximise their individual potential.”
Claire Tao, Executive Head at Merchant Taylors’, said: “GCSEs represent the first taste of external examinations for the majority of pupils and our boys and girls have displayed tremendous resilience and character to focus on their studies and demonstrate their abilities.
“I must give special thanks to our talented teams of staff across both schools, who have offered educational and emotional support to pupils throughout, and they can be proud of their impact on pupils’ lives both now and in the future.”
