Students at Seaford College are celebrating achieving their best ever A*-B GCSE results leading to a record number of pupils heading into the Sixth Form.
Headmaster John Green, who took up the post two years ago and has implemented various strategies to improve the school’s academic core, said: “I’m very pleased with the progress and academic strategy we have put in place this year enabling all our students to achieve excellent results. Harry Wheeler, from Wisborough Green, achieved 10 A*s, Callum Loeffen-Ames, from Bognor Regis, achieved 6A*s and 5As, Daniel Low, from Billingshurst, gained 7A*s, 2As and a B, Mairi Donaldson, from Haslemere gained 7A*s and an A, Daisy Hanbury, from Haslemere, achieved 4A*s, 3As and a B, Callum Easton, from Loxhill, gained 3A*s, 6As and a B, Alex Harry from Billingshurst achieved 3A*s and 6 As. We look forward to welcoming back a record number of Seaford students in September into the Sixth Form and wish them every success as they continue their studies at Seaford.”
“In addition to the best ever A*-B result at Seaford the A*-A pass rate has increased and our impressive A*-C pass rate of 80% has been repeated this year. In a current environment of an undoubted toughening up of academic standards these results are particularly pleasing. Many children have achieved academic personal bests spurred on by our new Challenge Grade system and our excellent teaching. Our English and English Literature results are particularly impressive, where many of our pupils have surpassed their Challenge Grade. As a proud non-selective school our results indicate that our academic core is strengthening year on year enabling pupils to gain their academic personal bests. In conjunction with the strong A Level results, this demonstrates that Seaford is continuing to gather academic momentum”.
