GCSE Results - 20th August 2015
Hinchingbrooke School is celebrating a bumper year of results at GCSE, with 65% of all students achieving 5 or more A*-C grades including English and Maths, improving on last year’s performance by 9%. 72% of students got 5 or more A*-C grades, and 99% of students achieved 5 or more A*-G grades including English, Maths and Science – our highest ever score in this measure. 30% of students achieved the English Baccalaureate, the government’s ‘flagship’ suite of qualifications. Progress measures are also significantly improved from previous years  - we expect our value added score to be well above national, at 1013. 
27 students scored 8 or more grades at A* or A, a truly outstanding achievement by any measure. Another 20 scored at least 5 A* or A grades. Particular mention must be made of 2 students who secured 11 A* grades each – Bethany Heath and Jordyn Perry. In addition to their A* grades, both girls sat the A Level equivalent Maths exam (the FSMQ) and scored an A grade. Other students performing extremely well include Joshua Clarke (10A*s, 3As), Lucille Corby (9A*s, 3As), Ashleigh Drakard (8A*s, 3As), Jessica Ng (7A* grades and 5As), Alex Clayden (6A*s, 4As), Jennifer Macey (6A*s, 6As), Lucy Waller (5A*s, 5As), Alex Dachs (4A*s, 8As), Jossie Palmer (4A*s, 8As), and Robert Burton (4A*s, 6As) - these figures include FSMQ and any short course grades. There are many other students scoring high numbers of the very top grades, and their hard work has certainly paid off this Summer.
We have been delighted with the diligence, enthusiasm and determination exhibited by students in this particular year group, and they fully deserve the excellent results they have achieved and the firm footing this has given them for their future. Our sincere and heartfelt thanks to all of our staff who have shown unfailing commitment to helping our students achieve their potential. We would also like to thank the parents of these students for their continued support both of the school and their children. 
A2 and AS Results - 13th August 2015
We are so proud of all of our students who have worked unbelievably hard this year with great determination and spirit.  We wish to congratulate all of the students whose results have met or exceeded what they hoped for, and we look forward to their next steps.  
Overall 44% of the grades received were A*B and our average points per student improved from last year (648), as did our top grades at AS (37% A-B, our highest for several years).  98% of our A Level grades were passes, which led to many happy faces when results were collected and opened.

It's a time to hunt for insects, master handstands, practice swimming strokes, conquer trees, explore nooks and crannies, and make new friends.' (Darell Hammond). Go and enjoy your lazy, hazy summer days.
Have a fabulous summer holiday, and recharge those batteries.
