Students at Bohunt School in Liphook, part of Bohunt Education Trust (BET), celebrated receiving their GCSE results, enabling them to embark on the next stage of their education journey.
Students and staff joined together to mark the achievements of the 2022 cohort, who have shown great commitment, determination and hard work over the past few years to secure such strong results.
Overall, 86 per cent of students at the school achieved a Grade 4 or better in English and maths, with a 4 being the grade set by the government as a standard pass.
Furthermore, almost 90 per cent of all subject entries were graded at 4 and above.
There were strengths across the board, particularly in the core subjects – results in English, maths and science were particularly impressive, with 94 per cent of students achieving at least a Grade 4 in English and 86 per cent of students in maths achieving a Grade 4 or higher.
A fantastic 86 per cent of students achieved two Grade 4s or better in science.
More than half the cohort took triple science with amazing results: biology 99 per cent, chemistry 97 per cent and physics 99 per cent all at Grade 4 and above.
Economics, dance, ancient history and statistics all achieved 100 per cent grades 9-4.
Bohunt School’s innovative CLiL programme, which saw the current cohort take GCSE Mandarin or GCSE Spanish two years early, also achieved fabulous results.
Spanish achieved a 100 per cent pass rate with 80 per cent at Grades 7 and above. Mandarin achieved a 97 per cent pass rate with 65 per cent at Grades 7 and above and 100 per cent of students who sat GCSE statistics in Year 10 also gained a grade at 9-4 with 90 per cent achieving Grade 7 and above.
These impressive results follow an outstanding set of A-level results for Bohunt Sixth Form when 51 per cent entries were at grades A*/A, making them the top state provider of A-levels locally.
