A Level 2017

Students at The Bishop’s Stortford High School have achieved some excellent results in this year’s A-Level examinations with the vast majority now heading off to their chosen university destinations.

We also saw some brilliant individual performances at A-Level this year, including 13 students gaining A* and A grades in every subject, with the vast majority of all students gaining places at their chosen university, many at some of the country’s top universities like Cambridge, Durham, Imperial and St Andrews. 55% of all grades were achieved at A*-B, with five high-flying students now taking up places on prestigious courses to study medicine.

Some individual highlights include:

Jakub Porzycki (A*A*A*A*)

Henry Stuart-Turner (A*A*A*) Head Boy

Anirudh Suresh (A*A*A*)

Joshua Weight (A*A*A*)

Robert Avontuur (A*A*A*)

TBSHS Headteacher, Dale Reeve, said, “We are extremely proud of the whole year group’s achievements, with some incredible individual performances, and to see so many students taking up courses in medicine next year is particularly pleasing. These outstanding results represent a fitting reward for all the hard work put in by students and teachers alike and the fantastic parental support that we continue to enjoy. I would like to pay tribute to Mark Brunker, Assistant Headteacher – Head of Sixth Form, an excellent leader who has done so much to sustain high academic standards and enrich the life of the school, who now leaves to take up a new post as Deputy Headteacher in a Lincolnshire school.”

Robert Stark, our new Assistant Headteacher - Head of Sixth Form, added, “I am delighted to see that our students have achieved a really positive set of results. It is extremely pleasing to see hard work translated into exam success and I congratulate the students for upholding the school’s traditions of excellence in their extra-curricular endeavours as well as in their studies and wish them the very best of luck for their future endeavours. I would like to thank the Sixth Form Pastoral Team and Tutors for the outstanding support they have given the students.”


GCSE 2017                             

Students at The Bishop’s Stortford High School have achieved excellent standards at GCSE Level with many outstanding results.

Although the mixture of letters and numbers used for GCSE grades this year makes comparisons slightly more complicated, 84% of Year 11 students gained the equivalent of 5+A*-C grades (including English & Maths) in their exams, with 34% of all grades being achieved at A*/A (or equivalent) and 82% at A*-C. Given that boys nationally are significantly outperformed by girls at GCSE, these really are an impressive set of results including:

Max Hadley – 9, 9, 8, 7A*s, A

Stephen Bates – 9, 8, 8, 7A*s

Adam Hussain – 9, 8, 7A*s, A, 6

Kaiya Kiyosawa – 9, 7A*s, 3As, 7, 6

Thomas Parkin – 9, 8, 6A*s, 2As, 7

Daniel Beer – 8, 7A*s, 7, 6

Isaac Mendel – 9, 9, 5A*s, 3As, 7

Headteacher, Mr Dale Reeve, said “This excellent set of GCSE results is a fantastic follow-up to last week’s A-Level performance. Congratulations to all our Year 11 students who have worked so hard to achieve this success. This is a group with many talents outside the classroom, including sport and music, who have contributed wholeheartedly to the extra-curricular life of the School and they’ve managed to produce brilliant academic outcomes as well. I’m particularly impressed with how well they’ve coped with the new English and maths curricula; gaining so many of the new grade 9s and 8s is a huge achievement. I would like to thank all the staff for the excellent support they have given to the boys, and to their Head of Year, David Sadler, for keeping them on track. These students will form part of a very promising sixth form cohort for the next two years.”
