Bishop Luffa students have had an incredible year – they have raised almost £50, 000 for charity, learnt some Ukrainian, produced a number of stunning music and drama performances, won a debating conversation and played MCC at cricket – oh, and they produced a sparkling set of GCSE results to cap it all off!
Overall, 84% students passed both English and Maths, with an average grade of 5.6 for the whole year group. 62% students achieved grade 5 or higher in English and Maths. There were some outstanding individual results, including:
- Iona Hamilton, who got grade 9s in all of her GCSEs, and is now studying at the International College in Costa Rica
- Euan Campbell, who also got 9 GCSEs at grade 9, and is staying at Bishop Luffa Sixth Form to study Maths, Further Maths and Computer Science.
- Lucy Campbell (no relation to Euan!) who made it three students with a full set of 9s. Lucy is also staying at Bishop Luffa Sixth Form and will be studying Chemistry, Biology and Maths.
Head Teacher Austen Hindman said: “we are so proud of this year group. There are so many incredible achievements in this set of results. Many students struggled with lockdown and have had to dig deep to be able to sit these exams. We are celebrating so many individual achievements with the students and their families. We all share a relief that the disruption is over and these students are now able to move on with their lives.
“We are so pleased to be celebrating all of the hard work that these students have put in. They are quite a year group!”
