GCSE results 2011: Sacred Heart
Friday August 26, 2011
Sacred Heart High School students maintained their consistently high results with a number of teenagers achieving top grades, writes Aanchal Clare.
Students at the Hammersmith school arrived bright and early on the wet Thursday morning to collect their results.
There was a buzz of excitement as the girls scrambled to find out how they did and the hall soon filled with squeals, hugs, and smiling faces.
Leading the pack of A* students is Chevaz Clarke, 16, of Ealing, who achieved an impressive 12 A*’s and an A in AS critical thinking.
She said: “I’m really excited. It was predicted that I would do well, but I was still feeling nervous before I picked up my results.” The 16-year-old plans to attend St Benedict’s Sixth Form in Ealing to study English Literature, biology, chemistry, and maths.
Friend and fellow bright spark, Christina Tran, 16, of Fulham, shares her delight in achieving nine A*’s and two A’s. “I’m quite stunned at the moment.” she said. “I was quite nervous before picking up my results. I really didn’t expect to do so well and my mum might collapse when I tell her my results.”
Hoping to attend a university in London, Stephanie will go on to study maths, further maths, chemistry, biology, and economics at Cardinal Vaughan Memorial sixth form.
A total of 94 per cent of Sacred Heart students achieved a grade A*-C in five or more GCSEs.
Headteacher Dr Christine Carpenter said: “I’m very happy to see so many overjoyed students. The results are good and we have managed to sustain a similar outcome to last year, which is excellent. I would like to say a big well done and thank you to all the teachers who have helped the students achieve such excellent results.”
