Michael Thompson gained an excellent list of results with a distinction* for ECDL, a 6 in English language and five further subjects at grade B.

Hannah Sharman’s results were above target in seven subjects including English, maths and science. Hollie Hipkiss and Marcus Miller also demonstrated consistency across a range of subjects, with Hollie being awarded a 7 in English Literature and maths, in addition to an A, four Bs and a 5. Marcus’s results are above target in all subjects – and significantly above expectation in maths.

Sophie Dickinson’s accomplishment covers nine subjects, including a distinction, 6 in maths, four Bs, two 5s and a C.

Susan Dench, executive headteacher for the West Grantham Academies Trust, said: “These students demonstrate what can be achieved with good teaching, sustained effort and a determination to achieve excellence. Improvements in discipline and a culture of high expectations have enabled these students and other students to achieve success in their examinations.

“We wish all our outgoing Year 11 students luck and happiness for the next stages of their lives, knowing that they have gained so much more than their GCSEs during their time at St Hugh’s.”
