There were smiling faces all round at Chatham Grammar School for Boys (CGSB) on Results Day as students celebrated another record-breaking set of GCSE results. Around half of all students achieved at least five A*/A grades, and many gaining over ten top awards.
Whilst strong results were enjoyed across the board, some of the most outstanding individual success stories include Erion Ukas, with 12 A*s and 2 As; Oskar Wrightson, 9 A*s and 5 As; Isaac Watson, 9 A*s and 4 As; Harry Cawe, 8 A*s and 6 As; David Blair, 6 A*s and 6 As; Sebastian Janssens, 8 A*s and 4 As; Alexander Wood, 7 A*s and 5 As; Phillip Ivory, 7 A*s and 5 As; and Max Green 6 A*s and 6As.
CGSB staff have expressed their delight at this year’s results, which continue a pattern of year on year improvement, after record GCSE results were achieved in 2014 and 2015.
The school will become known as Holcombe Grammar School from next month and forms part of Thinking Schools Academy Trust, a school-based, cross-phase Multi-Academy Trust that operates in two hubs, Medway and Portsmouth.
Principal, Juliet Diaz, said:
“It has been great to see this group of students mature and develop over the past five years. They have been a very able group of students throughout their time at the school and we had hoped for a superb set of exam results. The boys certainly have not disappointed, managing to achieve the school’s best ever GCSE results even exceeding the outstanding performance of 2015. I am so pleased that their efforts have been rewarded and am so excited to see what they make of their A-Level studies, which commence in under two weeks. My congratulations to the students and also my grateful thanks to the teachers who have given unstintingly of their time to support them. “
