Gcse Results


Record Results at St Philip Howard School

Students, staff and parents are celebrating the best ever GCSE results at SPH, surpassing all previous achievements, despite the more rigorous examination curriculum.  Everyone’s hard work really paid off with 86% of students gaining at least 5 GCSEs at Grade 4 (C grade equivalent) or above.  91% achieved a Grade 4 or above in English and 88% in Maths.  Grades 7 to 9 are the equivalent of the old A, A* and now A** (which is achieved by just a very small percentage of students nationally).  An amazing 28% of grades were 9-7, with more than half the year group getting at least one Grade 9-7.  Twenty-two students achieved a remarkable 8 or more GCSEs at the top grades.

Particular commendation goes to the students who made a ‘clean-sweep’ of top grades.  Nia Edwards who achieved the very top Grade 9 in every subject she took!  Lucy Owen with nine 9’s and Jess Rayner and Tyler Edwards gaining eight Grade 9’s and two Grade 8’s.  Mollie Finniear, Ben Lewis, Paddy McGreal, Georgia Hunt, Alyssa Castillo, Millie Folkes and Charlotte Zanger all achieved 10 GCSEs at Grade 9-7 – highly impressive!

Government measures now place real emphasis on the progress that students make whilst at school and this is an indication of how well a school supports all students regardless of their starting point.  These measures show that students at SPH are finishing their GCSEs at least 5 grades better off than they would have done compared to the national average.

David Carter, Headteacher, commented, “We are so proud of all of our students regardless of the numerical grade they achieved because they all worked so hard and achieved their very best.  More importantly they are also great people, being kind, caring and confident individuals.  We look forward to charting their success as they move into the Sixth Form and wider world.  An enormous thanks must go to the staff, who again have walked the extra mile to enable the students to fulfil their potential and parents who have continued to be wholeheartedly supportive.  Both A Level and GCSE results this year have surpassed all expectations.  Our school was ranked top in West Sussex for both GCSE and A Level last year and we look forward to welcoming both our current and new students in September.”
