Congratulations and good luck to all Ash Green School students who collected their GCSE and BTEC Level 2 exam results today.
2019 saw more 7-9 GCSE grades and top level BTEC grades achieved than in any previous year – but whatever your results may be, we recognise the hard work that every one of our inspirational young people put into these examinations. Ash Green School is a vibrant and confident place of learning, but it’s more than that – it’s a community of people who care about and support each other, one we are very proud to be a part of.
From the 2019 GCSE exam results, nearly 10% more 7-9 grades were awarded to Ash Green School students – from subjects across the curriculum, including Maths, History, and English Literature. Further GCSE subjects that excelled were PE and Combined Science – with Combined Science showing significant improvements on the subject’s 2018 exam results.
Those students taking their BTEC Level 2 exams in Business Studies, Media, and Sport achieved over 25% more Distinction* and Distinction results – the highest number of top grades for BTEC Level 2 ever recorded at Ash Green School. This is an incredible result and one that reflects the dedication and determination of the young people who studied so hard for these exams.
Kieran Pickerill, Ash Green School Assistant Principal, says: “This is a nerve-wracking time of year for our Year 11 students, they work really hard to prepare for their exams and this is the first real time they are assessed in this way.
We’re delighted at the increase in top grades – across both the GCSE and BTEC courses – but we congratulate all our young people on the hard work, focus and camaraderie they have shown during their studies. They are a real testament to the positive school life we foster at Ash Green School, where we strive to make every day extraordinary, and we look forward to welcoming many of them into the Sixth Form in the next academic year.”
But whether you are starting this next exciting chapter of your life with us at Ash Green or heading off to new adventures and experiences beyond our school, we wish each and everyone one of you all the success and happiness you can find.
From all at Ash Green School, once again congratulations and good luck to all our exiting Year 11 students – you are capable of great things, make every day extraordinary. Have a happy and safe summer.
