A QUICK calculation showed four maths students had four A grades at The Bishops’ High School.

Josh Richards (chemistry, maths, further maths, physics), Ben Stenhouse (chemistry, maths, further maths, physics), Lee Williamson (biology, business studies, maths, general studies) and Ruben Wolff (chemistry, maths, further maths physics) all counted maths among their four A grades.

Four students achieved three A and one B, who were Sarah Griffith (French, geography, German, general studies), Jack Mecklenburgh (chemistry, French, maths, general studies) and Carolyn Wilson (biology, chemistry, French, German, general studies, Elen Gwynne (physics, chemistry, maths, further maths - she will now study Physics and Astrophysics at Edinburgh).

Two students took three As (Zack Coates in theatre studies, English, fine art, and Chris French in product design, fine art, applied science).

Ten top students achieved a total of 35 grade As among them.

Head of Sixth Form Yvonne Blackburn said: “We were delighted with the results, not only of our high attainers but of all our students. This year’s results are the best ever and are a result of the hard work and commitment of teachers and students.

“The percentage of top grades has risen yet again this year with 71% of them being A, B or C grades.”
