GCSE RESULTS: Hitchin Boys’ School
THE headteacher at Hitchin Boys’ School has put the best ever GCSE results down to the hard work of teachers, students and parents.
Pupils recorded a 10 per cent improvement on last year, with 84 per cent of students getting five or more A*-C grades including English and maths.
Notable successes included Remy Campbell, who got five A*s, 10 As and one B, and Jonathan Mcallister who got four A*s, eight As and two Bs.
“I’m very happy with my results,” said Jonathan.
“I think they are slightly better than I expected, which is good. It was down to hard work.”
