Blue blazers ready: GCSE Success for Class of 2023

It was a case of ‘so-long Senior School, salutations Sixth Form!’ when CHS’s Class of 2023 collected their GCSE results this morning – sharing the moment with their family, friends, and teachers, all standing by to offer congratulations and support.

Looking forward to the new experiences awaiting them, the GCSE pupils will soon swap their green uniforms for blue blazers as proud members of CHS’s Lower Sixth and many spoke of their excitement for the journey ahead.

Chatting with friends whilst sampling the delicacies of Ginger’s Ice Cream Emporium, one pupil said: “I can’t wait to start in Sixth Form, it’s such a different experience to Senior School; you have so much more independence, we have our own building, and I really can’t wait to spend time in the common room and café.”

Once again the School’s Year 11s were awarded an exceptional set of results, and this year a large number excelled in Classics, Religious Studies and Sport Science, among other subjects.

In the second year CHS has offered the HPQ (Higher Project Qualification), all 14 candidates from Year 10 are also celebrating, each achieving top grades after showing commitment to their studies and attending weekly HPQ sessions during lunchtimes and after School.

Whilst enjoying a Worker Bee coffee from local independent suppliers The Coffee Bean Dream and soaking up the atmosphere, CHS Head Of Year 11, Mr Peter Thorn said; “I’m feeling nervous for the students! Hopefully they all receive the results they deserve and get to do what they want to do next. It’s gone well so far and has been lovely seeing them all arriving on site this morning with their loved ones, some of who haven’t been able to visit recently because of the national restrictions… it’s a good day!”
