Top 2 GCSE students in England!
Katie and Kylie are officially two of the top 10 GCSE achievers in England. News Shopper report here.
Katherine Henderson and Kylie Li achieved straight 9 grades in all 12 of the GCSEs they sat. We knew these were exceptional achievements but information released by Ofqual places them in the top 10 GCSE students in England!
According to Ofqual data, 1,350 students (0.2%) of nearly 600,000 students in England took 12 or more GCSEs. This means that BGS Year 11 students accounted for about 14% of those students. Of those 1,350 students, only 10 achieved straight grade 9s. BGS is delighted to celebrate two of these top students.
Mr Elphick is delighted. "What Katie and Kylie have achieved is stunning in so many ways. Like the rest of the Bexley Grammar Year 11 cohort, their 12 GCSEs included two languages, all three separate sciences, a humanities subject and RS (on just one lesson per week) - about as challenging a curriculum as is possible. Katie and Kylie have demonstrated perfection and deserve to be two of the top 10 GCSE students in England. All the staff who have worked with them over the years are so proud of what they achieved. We are in awe of them and their future prospects! Congratulations!"
