    Story by Harry Sutcliffe, Year 12.

    Over this Christmas period, while many have been enjoying themselves and indulging in nice food, not everyone has had this luxury. This is why a small group of Sixth Form students have been busy planning and organising a food bank donation appeal to help support those in the local community who have been struggling in recent times to ensure no one will go hungry this Christmas.

    We are all incredibly proud of our Year 11 students at Prince Henry’s, who, with the support of their teachers, have achieved an excellent set of GCSE results in the return to pre-pandemic standardisation.  They have shown remarkable perseverance since their education was first interrupted by the pandemic early in their secondary education in Year 8, to be rewarded with some extremely strong outcomes, particularly at the higher end.

    KS5 Results "We are all incredibly proud of our sixth form students in navigating through the past few years of exam uncertainty, securing outstanding results and demonstrating tenacity and resilience in their journey towards their chosen pathways. A huge congratulations and well done goes to all of our students – your school, community, and families couldn’t be more delighted and proud of you all. The vast majority have secured a place at their first choice university, apprenticeship or workplace. We wish all of them the very best for their next steps whatever their destination.” Sally Bishop, Headteacher, Prince Henry’s Grammar School

    Comparisons to previous years understandably remain difficult in light of the considerable disruptions faced with exams more recently and the fluctuation of methodology and tolerance. However, overall, our excellence in academic performance is retained with an overall pass rate of 99.3%. The percentage of higher grades awarded remains strong with 77.3% of all grades awarded at A* - C, which is an increase from the same set of grades awarded just prior to Covid in 2019, and above national, and the average points score increasing to 34.89.

    There are some amazing individual success stories across the full range of academic achievement. At the top end a number of students gained straight A or A* grades. Three students secured an impressive suite of A* grades and go on to their first choice of university with Rhuaridh Turner taking up a place at Nottingham to study Veterinary Medicine, Harrisen Crowder gaining his place to study Design Engineering at Imperial College, London and Jake Powell going on to study Medicine at Sheffield.

    Eleven students achieved a mixture of A* and A grades and also progress to their first choice. Among them are Patrick Timmins, Sam Finney and Tom Macauley who have each secured their place at Durham to read Geography, Engineering and Maths respectively, Lia Chew who will progress to Manchester to study Zoology, Josh Carter who heads off to Warwick to pursue a degree in Maths, and Jake Greenwood who will take up his place at Sheffield to study Electronic and Electrical Engineering. There were a number of other high-achieving students collecting straight A’s who included Harvey Nicholson who will read Spanish at Oxford, Isobel Heap who will read Music at Cambridge and Tia Tinkler who moves on to Queen’s University, Belfast to study Psychology.

    Also of note were top achievers in our vocational programmes, many of whom will go on to take up places at university or on apprenticeships which are rapidly gaining in popularity. In addition to the more traditional courses, the eclectic variety of destinations and subjects for our students this year is testament to the forwardthinking advice given to our sixth form, where new opportunities are increasingly promoted and taken up. These include subjects as various as Marine Zoology, Forestry, Cybersecurity, Journalism, Digital Marketing and Financial planning as well as a growing number choosing gap years.

    We are particularly proud of a number of our students who have faced challenges around special educational needs and disabilities and of course there are many more personal success stories too numerous to mention. It should go without saying that we are proud of each and every one of our students for their endeavors and hard work whatever grades are achieved or destinations are being embarked upon.

    “I’d like to take this opportunity to sincerely thank and congratulate the sustained efforts of our committed and dedicated staff at Prince Henry’s who continue to go the extra mile to ensure that our students can really flourish and achieve, fully equipped both academically and personally. The continued success of Prince Henry’s is due to their hard work and the commitment of our amazing students. Well done to all!”
