Hillview Students Celebrate Impressive GCSE Results
20 August 2015 – Staff and pupils at Hillview School for Girls are once again celebrating a year of impressive GCSE results with 80% of students gaining five or more GCSEs at grades A*– C.
66% achieved 5 or more GCSEs, grades A*– C, including English and Maths, far exceeding the national average figures, whilst 61% achieved the English Baccalaureate (EBacc).
Kate Aplin, Head of English, was thrilled with 87% of Year 11 students gaining an A*– C grade. “I’m delighted with this fantastic, well-deserved success”, she said. There were particularly strong results in French, Dance, Drama, Textiles and Art and Design, where very high percentages of students achieved the top A*–A grades, whilst Music was among the many subjects achieving 100% of A*– C grades.
Headteacher Elaine Buchanan said “Students and teachers have worked incredibly hard to achieve these results and I’m delighted that we have been able to help set them up for their future careers, whatever their chosen path. We are so pleased for our Year 11s and look forward to hearing about their future successes”.
Top performers included Leonie Luck, who achieved four A*s and seven A grades, Alice O’Connor and Florence King, both with ten A*– A grades, Kelsey Sowerby, Ruby Sandell and Rachael Mills, who each achieved nine A*– A grades.
Year 11 student, Rachael Mills said “I’m really pleased to have achieved these results! I couldn’t have done it without my teachers, who have been very supportive”.
Hillview School for Girls is a creative school, renowned for its specialisms in the Performing and Visual Arts. These subjects are integrated into the curriculum alongside EBacc subjects to provide a rich learning experience for its students. The school is delighted to be welcoming many of its students back into its mixed Sixth Form, which celebrated a record number of A* grades just last week.
