Excellence in the Heart of the Community
Wade Deacon Trust
It has been another year of excellent results at Hillside for our Class of 2018. The top ten performers achieved 65 top 9-7 grades in the new 9-1 GCSE system.
There were outstanding individual performances, including Jude Evans, who achieved ten 9 – 8 grades, six of which were grade 9s! Sam Zhen achieved eight 9-8 grades, six of which were also grade 9s. Both boys also scored a hat-trick in the separate sciences with grade 9s in Chemistry, Biology and Physics – a stunning academic achievement!
Over a third of Hillside pupils achieved at least one of the top grades across their subjects, with 130 top grades achieved overall. Performance in English and Maths continues to improve and across the curriculum a number of subjects have produced excellent results, including strong performances in English Literature, Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Sports and Art. A quarter of all Hillside pupils achieved the challenging English Baccalaureate qualification, which is a fantastic achievement.
Principal Amanda Ryan said “We are so proud of all of the achievements of our Year 11 pupils this year. They have worked extremely hard to achieve their results with the support of their parents and teachers. The whole school community is proud of their successes and I wish them all of the best as they pursue new courses in the future.”
