Welcome back to 2019/20!
I hope that you had a restful and enjoyable summer.
A warm welcome to our Year 7 parents and the parents of Year 12s who have joined us for their 6th Form.
It has been a very purposeful first week back and I would like to thank you for your support in preparing our young people for their return to school.
Year 7 have settled well, Year 8 have returned with a spring in their step because they are no longer the youngest, Year 9 and 10 have settled well into their options and Year 11 and Year 13 are taking their studies seriously in preparation for their exams next summer! We have welcomed back a fantastic number of Year 12s and they are settling well into life in the 6th Form.
The hard work, determination and resilience of Year 11 at Hardenhuish has been rewarded with a set of GCSE results to be very proud of. There are many individual success stories with 72% of pupils of pupils achieving the 9-4 basics measure (grade 9-4 in English and Maths) and 52% of pupils achieving a strong pass (9-5). Of these entries across a broad and balanced curriculum, 27% of entries achieved grades 9-7 with 54 pupils (21%) achieving at least 5 9-7 grades and 8 pupils achieving at least 10 9-7 grades. The majority of pupils achieved their challenging academic targets, making better than the national average rate of progress under the government’s Progress 8 measure, and 100% of pupils entered for our range of vocational qualifications passed, with many achieving merits and distinctions.
