Batley Grammar School GCSE level results 2018
Despite the increasing range of examinations that attracted the new 1 – 9 grades for the first time this year we are, once again, delighted with the achievements of our Year 11 students and congratulate them on some really excellent GCSE results.
These results reflect the dedication and hard work by both staff and students alike and, as our Year 11 students leave us, we wish them well in the next stage of their education. There were many exceedingly happy students leaving us having collected their results this morning, with an increasing number having achieved the top grade 9 in a range of subjects, knowing that they had secured the grades to make the transition to the next stage in their education.
The top performing students this year in terms of attainment were E Soimaru (5 grade 9’s; 3 grade 8’s 1 grade 7); L Nicholls (5 grade 9s; 2 grade 8s; 2 grade 7s); L Walton (5 grade 9; 2 grade 8s; 2 grade 7s); O Hullah (4 grade 9s; 5 grades 8s); S Seedat (2 grade 9s; 4 grade 8s; 2 grade 7s). Other students attaining a high proportion of the higher grades and at least six grades at either 7, 8 or 9 include; B Costello; A Ikhlaq; R Khan; U Mahmood; A Seedat and K Whitfield. Students who made significant progress compared with others include; R Maila; Z Lunat; Z Khan; A Gorji and H Adeem.
We always say that exam results are always only part of the picture and this academic success has also been matched by equally good performances outside of the classroom. Our students regularly make the most of all the opportunities on offer here at Batley Grammar School. This might typically include being a member of the Combined Cadet Force (CCF), undertaking the Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme, or enthusiastically participating in the vast array of extra curricular activities alongside the volunteering, enterprise and fund raising projects on offer; no mean feat alongside studying for GCSE exams.
We pride ourselves in helping to develop confident, rounded individuals and enriched young citizens that will contribute to the community and are well prepared for life in modern Britain today.
