what's happening at Chesham Grammar
Students, parents and staff of Chesham Grammar School are celebrating excellent GCSE results, despite all the talk nationally of harder GCSEs and lower grades. Almost two thirds of all entries resulted in A*/A grades (or grades 9 - 7 in English and maths) with 70% of students gaining at least 5 A*/A grades and around 30 students notching up a 'clean sweep' of ten or more A*/A grades. Headteacher Annmarie McNaney said, "I am absolutely thrilled for our students. In a year where there has been so much uncertainty and a good deal of negative press about GCSEs, our students have amassed a tremendous set of results with which we are delighted. Their achievements are well deserved and I would like to congratulate the students and thank the staff for all their hard work." In maths and English where the new 9-1 grades have been awarded for the first time, there were some superb individual performances. Oliver Brady and Lottie Hylton are two students who gained three grade 9s in English language, literature and maths, along with A* or A in everything else too. Annmarie McNaney said, "No-one quite knew what to expect in terms of results in English and maths because of the new courses and the new grading system but our students and staff have risen to the challenge and we are really pleased."
