Thomas Pereira scored 7 A*s and two As, and Ronan Joyce had 6 A*s with 3 grade As. Ana Mendes De Sousa had 11 passes, 6 at A* and 5 at A. Year 9 student Gabriella Emery was able to celebrate passing Mathematics with an A*, and nine Year 10 students all achieved A*s in Mathematics, having been entered early for this examination.
Louis Desa, Headteacher at Bishop Thomas Grant, reflected on this year’s GCSE results: "I would like to congratulate our Year 11 students. Their outstanding GCSE results are testament to their hard work throughout last year and the inspirational teaching and dedication of our staff. I would also like to take this opportunity to thank our parents for their significant contribution to these fantastic results. Once again, attainment is very high across the vast majority of subjects and with students of all abilities. The levels of progress of the students for both English and Mathematics are truly amazing. Well done and thank you to everyone."
