Excellence in the Heart of the Community
Wade Deacon Trust
We are delighted with the results at Hillside this year and congratulate the pupils for their hard work and efforts – they have been rewarded with excellent outcomes.
The top 10 performing pupils achieved over 80 A*/A grades between them. Shuyi Wu achieved 10A*/A grades and Sean Brennan achieved 9 A*/A grades! There were 223 A*/A grades achieved in total with 88 pupils achieving at least one top grade. Outstanding achievement at Hillside.
It has been another fantastic year for English Baccalaureate, with nearly a third of pupils achieving this academically challenging qualification. In the new English and Maths GCSE 9-1 qualifications more than 12% of pupils achieved the top 9 – 7 grades.
It has been another strong year for Modern Foreign Languages, with over 100 pupils achieving A*-C grades. In separate science, 44% of pupils achieved A*/A grades in Biology, 41% in Chemistry and 35% in Physics – outstanding achievement in these academically challenging subjects.
Principal, Amanda Ryan praised the dedication and hard work of pupils and staff in achieving these fantastic results. ‘I am so pleased with the performance of Hillside pupils this year. They worked so hard to achieve their qualifications. This year our pupils have risen to the challenge of the new GCSEs in English and Maths and the number of top grades achieved across the curriculum is testament to the high expectations we have for all of our pupils. I wish all of the pupils every success in the future and look forward to hearing about their future achievements.
