Once again Bishop Fox’s School has delivered impressive examination results this year with many students achieving their potential in the ever-changing world of GCSEs.
Over 73% of students achieved a standard pass in English and 70% in maths, these grades being the new standard to support progress to post-16 study. Many other subjects delivered impressive outcomes with students achieving high proportions of A*-C pass rates, these include Biology 100%, Chemistry 100%, Physics 100%, Health and Social Care 100%, PE 95%, Drama 88%, Computer Science 87%, Media 84% and BTEC Sport 83%.
Headteacher, Kerry Tonkin offered congratulations to both staff and students adding that ‘This is an important landmark in young people’s lives and I am delighted that so many of our students have performed so well. This is further evidence of our continuous improvement and recognises the staff’s commitment and hard work to ensure that our students get the best possible outcomes’.
Whilst it is difficult to mention individuals, there are a number of students deserving a special mention for having recorded 8 or more GCSE results at A*/A (or equivalent grades 9, 8 and 7 in English or maths) Marceli Potocki, Abigail Bailey, Samuel Cunningham, George Hogben, Emily Robinson, Rachael Bailey, Natasha Carter, Joseph Uff, Emmy Chu, Siyu Huang, Joshua Talbot, Wojciech Toczydlowski and Alice Vernon.
I cannot thank my staff and Governors enough for their commitment to the school. We do, of course, wish all our students every success in their future career paths. They were a delightful year group who were a pleasure to work with over the last 5 years and we hope that the have many fond memories of their time at Bishop Fox’s.
