Tim Lello, Headmaster of Babington House School, was delighted to announce the recent examination results, stating, "Results are up, numbers are up and the new Sixth Form is thriving. I am very proud of all the pupils and staff; they put in an extraordinary amount of work to achieve some outstanding results."
The percentage of all GCSE grades from A* to C was 91% with almost a quarter of those grades being A* or A. The percentage of five A* to C grades was 93%, which is an increase of 18% on last year.
Delighted parents commented, "Babington has A* teachers who have turned it around." Bryanna, a Year 11 student, said, "I knew I could do it, but did not think I could do this well; the hard work has really paid off."
Many pupils commented on how their Maths results exceeded their expectations, something echoed by Natasha, who collected her GCSE results today, "When you actively go above expectations: Wow!"
Babington House Upper Sixth leavers were also delighted to achieve a 100% pass rate at A Level and every student managed to secure the grades they needed to attend their first choice of university. Our A Level students who have deferred their university places are also lining up work, as one delighted parent commented about her daughter's opportunities as a result of Babington's provision, "I particularly want to thank you for the great idea of the 6th Form having an element of work experience, which has helped her get a second interview tomorrow for a role in a private equity firm near Covent Garden."
