Top science GCSE scores at Brimsham Green despite disappointing English results
BRIMSHAM Green School did not escape the national downward trend in English although pupils held their own in GCSE science.
Just 54 per cent of students received A* to C grades this year.
Yet this unexpected dip was balanced out by impressive results in science.
Around 20 per cent of Brimsham Green students received an A* in the three sciences while a remarkable 98 per cent achieved A* to C grades in science.
It was also a bumper year for religious education with 98 per cent of pupils awarded an A* to C marks.
Overall 79 per cent of the 209 pupils taking their GCSE exams got A* to C grades.
Stand out performers were 16-year-old Leanne Hagger, from Yate, who was awarded no fewer than 11 A*, twins Jamie and Liam Challis, 16, also from Yate who received five A* and eight As between them, as well as Molly Jackson, 16, who scored 10 A* and one A.
Head teacher Kim Garland said: “We are really pleased. There’s been a lot of concern about science. Given what you hear in the press the students have done really well.
Speaking about the fall in English scores, she added: “That’s really disappointing for our students and it has such an impact on their future courses. We are committed to looking into the results and having them retake their exam if need be.”
