Students and staff at Hungerhill School celebrate another fantastic set of results, with the school sustaining its impressive Attainment 8 score of 5.11, despite the government commitment to raising grade boundaries and returning to pre-pandemic levels.
A total of 53% of students achieved the strong pass of grade 5 or better in English and maths while 75% achieved a standard pass in both. There were excellent performances from these individual departments; 88% of Year 11’s recorded a standard level 4 pass in English, with 77% achieving the strong grade 5 or above. In Maths, 78% reached level 4 with 55% achieving grade 5 or higher.
Mrs Pond, the Headteacher said ‘Congratulations to all our Year 11 students who have displayed resilience and perseverance, especially during the examination period. I am extremely proud of all that they have achieved. It has been a pleasure to watch them grow throughout their time at Hungerhill, and I am delighted that we are able to share such an excellent set of results with them today. I am confident that these results will allow them to be hugely successful in their next steps. I would like to take this opportunity to thank parents/carers for the support they have given to their child over the course of the last 5 years and I would also like to give a special mention to our superb team of staff, who have worked tirelessly to ensure each student has had the best chance to achieve success'. Mrs Pond also added that ‘Hungerhill’s results are especially impressive, given the ambitious GCSE courses we run at KS4, which demonstrates the value that we place on tougher subjects instead of their equivalences’.
Students in science did particularly well with 91% of the Separate Science cohort achieving a grade 5 or above in all 3 sciences and students studying Combined Science did equally as well, as strong passes were recorded by 53% of this cohort of students.
The English Baccalaureate average points score was 4.64, which is especially significant as 47% of the cohort study qualifications to meet the requirements of the more demanding EBacc route. Impressive results from Science, French and Spanish greatly contributed to this success.
There were many fantastic achievements across other curriculum areas; particular mention should be given to Food and Nutrition who secured 76% at grade 5 and above and 43% at grade 7 and above; French who secured 97% at grade 5 and above and 31% at grade 7 and above; Art and Design who secured 73% at grade 5 and above and 32% at grade 7 and an impressive 18% at grade 9 and RSL Music and Performing Arts with 100% Level 2 Merits and above.
There were a number of notable high attainments, including the following students who have gained an impressive set of results including four or more grade 9’s:
Particular mention should go to Brody, Carrie and Megan who achieved an outstanding seven grade 9’s each.
As a school, we are however extremely proud of all our students' successes - we all know that they have been earned, are well deserved and are a result of students significant and sustained efforts. We wish all our students all the best, these results will stand them in good stead for their future allowing them to achieve their hopes, ambitions and dreams.
