GCSE and BTEC Results 2018

Following the success of the A Level results announced last week, there were many students and staff eagerly waiting for the publication of the GCSE and BTEC results at 10am on Thursday morning. There were ‘happy tears’ from many students as they opened their results to find that they had achieved or surpassed their target grades.

Principal, Kevin Patrick, said, “This year has been another year of great change. There has been the introduction of numbers rather than grades for most of the Foundation subjects with student performance now being determined by a rigorous Y11 examination rather than coursework. This has created much stress for students, staff and parents alike. Today the dedication shown by students has been rewarded. Congratulations and well done to everyone involved."

Outstanding GCSE results were achieved by many students. We are proud of the performance of the whole year group, however the following students should be particularly commended for achieving some of the top grades at GCSE or the BTEC equivalent:

Grade 9 is the very best performance and is only given to the top 2% of entries, this reinforces the fantastic outcomes achieved by the students.

The staff at Chiltern Hills Academy are looking forward to seeing many of last year’s Y11 students, together with students from other schools, as they enrol for their Sixth Form courses.  The Sixth Form at Chiltern Hills has a range of course opportunities for both traditional A Levels and vocational courses.  With a relatively small Sixth Form, students are nurtured and encouraged in small teaching groups to achieve their very best, whatever their interests and aspirations might be.

The enrolment for Y11 students who wish to join the sixth form at Chiltern Hills is 10.00am-12.30pm on Thursday 23 August (today). Alternatively applicants can contact the Director of Sixth Form, Mrs Jones, using her email: mjones1@chacademy.co.uk
