Pupils at King Edward’s School Witley have celebrated a year of record GCSE results

Bucking the national trend, the mixed-ability day and boarding School, which was graded as Excellent in every area by inspectors last year, saw virtually all its Year 11 pupils gain at least 5 A*-C grades, with over 90% of subjects taken achieving the A*-C benchmark, and its best ever haul of the top grades A & A*. Among many personal triumphs, Ching Ya (Yahoo) Ho, from Berkshire, celebrated an outstanding 9 A*s and one A in the exams, which included several IGCSEs, often regarded as more rigorous than the national GCSE. Yahoo, who also captained King Edward’s U16 football team to become National Schools Champions last May, will study the IB Diploma at King Edward’s in the Sixth Form. Also celebrating 9A*s, an A and a B was local student Remi Trovo from Wormley, Godalming, while Albury’s Jasper Whitefield gained 6 A*s, 3 As and a B, and Scarlett Thornton, from Bramley, was delighted with her 9 As and one B. Commenting on the results, the Headmaster, John Attwater, said: “I am so delighted with the year-on-year improvement our GCSE results are showing, but in particular that this year’s cohort have had the success they deserve: as a group they worked and played hard and got the balance between all-round learning and preparing for the exams just right. A lot of hard work and great teaching lies behind their success today; they can be very proud and I look forward to welcoming them back into the Sixth Form in a couple of weeks!”
