GCSE Success at Uckfield College


Once again, students at Uckfield College responded to the challenge of the new, harder GCSEs and performed exceptionally well. The headline figure of 9-4 (previously grades A*-C) in English and Maths rose to 75% and the new headline of 9-5 in English and Maths was 50%. The year group also achieved a greater number of the very top grades with 11.3% attaining 9-8 (previously grade A*).


Hugh Hennebry, Principal, said, “The new exams are tougher and we are so proud that our students have worked so hard for so long to achieve personal excellence. They have done so well because they have studied, done homework or revised every day throughout their GCSEs. Our students have shown real resilience and determination and what has marked this year group out is their positive attitude and desire to do their very best. Staff at the College have put in huge amounts of effort to inspire and help them and I am also very grateful for the tremendous support all our parents have given each of them. What great teamwork!”


Dan Wynne Willson, Deputy Principal, added, “It was a delight to see so many happy students collecting their results today. The year group undertook the challenge of their exams with such enthusiasm in the summer term and these very good results are a reflection of the hours of hard work and dedication the students, staff and parents have put in over the years. We are, as always, so proud of our students and wish them all the best as they move into the 6th form with us or other routes they may decide to take.”


Exceptional Outcomes

Only 837 students nationally attained grade 9s in every subject and we are extremely proud of Jess Molesworth who also achieved this fantastic feat in all her subjects. The new grade 9s were introduced to be above the A* (which is now a grade 8). Jess joins a very elite national group of brilliant young minds.
