Third consecutive year of better performance
For the third year running students at Chiswick Community School have performed better at GCSE.
This year the provisional percentage of students gaining 5 plus passes at A* to C including English and Maths was 58% an improvement of 6% on last year. The overall 5A* to C rate was 74% an improvement of 10% on last year.
There were some staggering achievements by individual students led by three girls who all took the double Art and Design GCSE. Ellie Elks, Beth Archibald and Flora Ramsay all gained double A*s in this course. Ellie and Beth supplemented this with a further 5A*s and 4As totalling 11 GCSEs at A and above. Flora gained a further 2A*s with another 8As totalling 12 GCSEs at A and above.
Boys also achieved well. Louis Freeland-Haynes achieved 5A*s and 6 As, Pieter Oliver achieved 10 As and one A* as did Charles Mould.
Chiswick School has also supported students overcoming potential barriers which many students do not have to face. Sibi Thiruna joined the school from India in year 9 and has worked very hard to achieve 5As and 6Bs. Zeinab Yassin from Somalia has been speaking English for 4 years and gained a distinction in Health and Social Care equivalent to 4 GCSEs at A* as well as an A* in Maths, 5As including English Literature and 3 Bs.
‘Congratulations to the class of 2010 who have achieved record results’, said James Whiting, Deputy Head. ‘Well done to staff for all their hard work and to parents for all their support’.
