Uckfield students achieve best GCSE results in college history

Students at Uckfield Community Technology College have achieved the best set of GCSE results in the school’s history.

Seventy-six per cent of students achieved English and Maths GCSE at grades 9-4 and an overall 5A*-C of 79%. This is the first year of the new, more challenging GCSEs in Maths and English and the first year with the new 1-9 grades.

Happy with their GCSE results are Lucy Deeprose, Ingrid Moore, Alexandra White and Jack Ball.

Principal, Hugh Hennebry said, “The exams were tougher and for this year group to rise to this challenge and do better than any previous year shows what an amazing year group they are.

“I must pay tribute to the incredibly focused and conscientious way our students worked each and every day.

“They had to learn more knowledge than previous GCSE students and they managed to do that by regular and effective study habits. Well done to them, we are all hugely proud of their well-deserved success.

“I also want to thank the staff team who made sure that they taught the new courses and prepared the students so thoroughly both with inspirational teaching and also individual support. Finally, I must say how well our parents supported each student on their tough, learning journey. Congratulations, everyone.”

Jasen Couttiguane, director of year, said, “I am delighted that the students’ dedication and hard work paid off with such an excellent set of results. They are a brilliant year group and it was a real privilege to work with them.”
