On Thursday 24 August, students at Mary Hare School celebrated as GCSE results were announced.
Lots of our students have been celebrating results from their homes across the country.
This year’s results are a great demonstration of all their hard work, with 72% of GCSE grades achieved at Grade 4 and above and 74% of students taking both English Language GCSE and Maths GCSE achieved Grade 4 and above.
Jack Jennings, whose results include an 8 in English Language and 7 in Food Technology, says:
"I am so relieved to have passed all nine of my GCSEs and, in particular, I am delighted to have achieved an 8 with Merit for English Language. I truly believe I could not have achieved these great results had I not moved to the Mary Hare School in Year 8. I would like to thank all my teachers and I am looking forward to Sixth Form at Mary Hare, studying A Level Economics and Media Studies, along with a BTEC in Business Studies plus AS Core Mathematics."
Another student, Eleanor Davis, achieved a 7 in Fine Art and a 6 in Textiles, shared how she felt leading up to results day:
“I felt nervous and scared before my results but I knew I had worked hard. Today I feel good, especially about my art and textiles, and also happy and proud of my friends.”
Tilly Moutrie achieved an 8 in Mathematics and 7 in French, Chemistry and Performing Arts and shares her next plans for Sixth Form:
"I am extremely pleased with my results and would never have gotten here without the amazing teachers at Mary Hare.
I am now going into Sixth Form and will be studying Maths, Chemistry and French A Levels. I am especially proud of my French grade as this was always my favourite subject and I am now planning to get an A!"
Congratulations also go out to those students that have received additional specialist support during their time at Mary Hare and are now in an excellent position to gain their Level 3 qualifications within their chosen provisions, including at Mary Hare Sixth Form as well as other local mainstream provision in the student’s Local Authority.
Sarah Strudley, Vice Principal of Curriculum and Achievement at Mary Hare School, says:
‘Well done to all our students as these results are a true testament to all their hard work, in particular the results for English Language. Thank you to all of the staff and the families for their support to our students, who should be proud of these results today. They are all inspiring deaf young people and we very much wish them the best of luck as they venture on their next steps and look forward to welcoming many of them back in September as they return for Sixth Form.’
Congratulations to all of our students, and we look forward to welcoming lots of you back as you start the next chapter of your educational journey with us, whether it is with A-Levels, BTEC or Vocational Qualifications.
