Students at Reigate Grammar School are celebrating a 100% pass rate at GCSE with a big jump in the number of A* grades awarded.
The school saw three quarters of all grades awarded at the top A* or A, with 59 students achieving ten or more A* or A grades. The number of A* grades awarded jumped up to 43%.
Biology, Chemistry and Physics were among the 17 academic departments which were celebrating a 100% pass rate at the top A* to C grades when GCSE results were announced last Thursday (August 22).
Twin sisters Emma and Lucy Findlater broke school records by each achieving 11A*s and an A grade in Advanced Level Maths.
Emma and Lucy were among 14 students who achieved a minimum of 10 A* grades, including Sacha Lee, William Saward and Evangaline Scott, who also gained at least 11 A*s.
The GCSEs sweep followed the school's record-breaking A Level results and Oxbridge places secured of the previous week.
Reigate Grammar School headmaster Shaun Fenton called the results “phenomenal,” praised his team of teachers and said: “It’s wonderful to follow last week’s record A Level results with chart topping GCSE results, including a jump in the number of top grades awarded.”
He said: “The future is bright for these wonderful young people who have worked so hard.”
