Over 40% of the grades were at A*/A! Such fantastic achievement has enabled these students to secure places at the very best universities including Oxford, Cambridge, Imperial, UCL Warwick, to name but a few. They will be reading a variety of subjects including Medicine, Law, Economics, Philosophy, Politics & Economics (PPE), Mechanical Engineering and Aerospace Engineering, Economics and Mathematics.

Headteacher , Mr. Kevin Burke, commented: "These are an amazing set of results that our fantastic students have achieved. I am filled with pride having observed at first hand the talents, determination and application of our boys that have enabled such success. These GCSE results have once again placed Gunnersbury Catholic School amongst the leading schools in the country. This success is a testament to the hard work of our pupils, in conjunction with the teaching from Gunnersbury’s dedicated teachers and the constant support of our students’ families. In addition we also have a wide range of extra-curricular activities and empowering pastoral care which enabled our boys to achieve their best. In a year of huge examination changes Gunnersbury has continued to achieve the very
highest, Ad Altiora.”
