GCSE Results Success 2019

Students at Nicholas Chamberlaine have been celebrating great successes in their GCSE studies. For the third year in a row, the pass rate across the range of subjects has climbed significantly: now reaching their best level in recent memory.


The number of students with 5 standard passes (including English and Maths) has risen an impressive 10% in two years – reflecting a climb in students’ achievement in English (61% at Level 4 in 2019 up from 53% in 2017) and Maths (66% at Level 4 in 2019 from 59% in 2017).


Likewise, the school saw particular successes this year in Art (95% 9-4), Business (72% 9-4), French (80% 9-4) and Computer Science (74% 9-4). In the vocational subjects, key highlights were the significant pass rate in PE (94%) and Health & Social Care (83%) and the 77% Distinction to Merit rate in Catering.


These strong results now free students to pursue their education into the Sixth Form and beyond.


We are extremely proud of all our students and wish to celebrate some superb personal success:
• Bethany Loonam 10 9-7s
• Charley-Ann Morton 6 9-7s, 2 6s
• Maia Finnerty 2 9s, 4 8-7s, 1 6

• Michelle Alessio – 5 As, 3 Bs
