Oundle School pupils have produced the school’s best ever results at GCSE level.
The proportion of grades awarded at A*/A is 86 per cent, which is a school record.
The proportion of A* grades is 54.4 per cent, also a school record.
Boys have scored above 50 per cent for the first time ever (50.9 per cent).
Performance was strong across all subjects with mathematics (62 per cent), the sciences (64 per cent) and RS (68 per cent) all topping 60 per cent for A* grades.
Twenty-six pupils achieved straight A* grades, a 30 per cent increase from 2011: Natasha Ayton, Clementine Bailey, William Barrell, Eliza Burgess, Bronwen Chan, Sophia Christopoulos, Eleanor Cook, Charlotte Cundell, Hannah Day, Christopher Gilmartin, Andrew Ginns, Alexandra Hodgson, Heidy Kang, Richard Lane, Nigel Leung, Frederica Martin, Charlotte O’Dea, Virenkumar Pandya, Henry Scott, Eliza Shepherd, Rohesia Vince, Lucy Wakeford, Gabriella Wassell, Matthew Willis, James Wimpenny and Abby Wong.
Headmaster, Charles Bush, said: “These results are outstanding and represent tremendous achievement across the whole curriculum. I am particularly pleased that well over half the grades awarded were at A*. This cohort of pupils worked extremely hard and fully deserve these record-breaking results. Coupled with the excellent performance of Oundle’s A-Level candidates last week, these results confirm Oundle’s position as an academic leader within the independent educational sector.”
