Following a strong performance in A Level results, pupils at Lancing College have celebrated a successful achievement in their GCSEs
2019 has seen Lancing students take the revised 9-1 graded GCSE examinations across all subjects with the exception of music. Considerable success has been achieved with nearly 20% of grades awarded at grade 9. Well over a third of all examinations in the new grading system were at Grades 9-8 and 42 pupils scored five or more Grades 9-7.
Commenting on the results Dominic Oliver, Head Master, said: "Firmly embedded into the new 9-1 graded GCSE for the first time, Lancing pupils have performed exceptionally well in this challenging qualifications environment and should feel proud of the results that they have achieved. We are especially delighted to see further evidence of our strengths in maths, music and the sciences.
There were some remarkable individual performances within this impressive year group:
- Isaac has netted an outstanding set of results. As well as being a very accomplished football player both for the county and in the England Independent Schools squad, Isaac has already represented Lancing's 1st XI for one season and will be a key player in the Sixth Form. He attained grade 9s in biology and chemistry GCSE with a further four grade 8s, two grade 7s and a grade 6
- Emily attained a clean sweep of grade 7s (the equivalent of the old grade A) or better, attaining one grade 9, five grade 8s and three grade 7s. She will go on to study politics and the sciences
- Stephanie achieved an excellent set of GCSE grades at Lancing College. An outstanding musician and academic, Stephanie achieved what in the old grading system would be a clean sweep of grade A/7s or better, with an A* in the exacting IGCSE Music qualification (the highest possible grade in that qualification)
- Kristina gained an outstanding sweep of GCSE results, netting the equivalent of straight As or better in all of her examinations. A talented scientist, Kristina has scored three outstanding grade 9s, four grade 8s and two grade 7s
