GCSE Results Summer 2018

Pupils achieve strong GCSEs in the face of tougher exams

92% of Shoreham College pupils gained 5 A*-C grades including English and Mathematics in 2018, in spite of the courses being 30% heavier and tougher. These results place the College's results significantly above national averages and the state sector.

Matthew Sharp, Lucas Atherton, Lilia Erskine and Rebecca Hemingway all achieved a pleasing number of 8s and 9s, and we wish them well as they take up their places at sixth form colleges to pursue the academic pathways of their choice. Matthew, who is now taking Mathematics, Chemistry and Biology at A-level was thrilled and Lucas who is now studying for the International Baccalaureate said he was on 'cloud ten'. Head Girl Lilia's mother said her daughter was 'smiling from ear to ear' when she opened her envelope. Ethan Highwood was overjoyed and said 'I never thought I could do it' and he has now secured his place at Sixth Form College taking A-levels in PE, Psychology and Sociology. In keeping with the College's breadth, our pupils are also going on to study a wide range of courses like Animal Management with Science at Plumpton and Creative Media BTEC.  

Shoreham College is not academically selective which means the results are impressive and clear evidence of the hard work of both pupils and staff.

Richard Taylor-West, Headmaster said: 'I am very pleased for the College, our pupils and the teachers who support them so well. There is always nervousness in the air when there are changes in examinations driven by the government, especially when the changes rarely disadvantage, in my view, the more able in selective schools. Our results have opened pathways for our pupils for the future. We feel very confident about our continued success as a school that challenges and supports pupils, enabling them to achieve academically and in terms of their wider personal development, which is equally important in our view.'
