  • Outstanding 2023 GCSE Results!

    Published 24/08/23

    Today we have celebrated absolutely sensational results from our 2023 Year 11 students.

    • Indicative Progress 8 of +1.1 - (placing Gunnersbury in the top 3% of schools nationally)
    • Fantastic results in both English & Maths with 94% achieving grades 9-4
    • 7+ grades - 46%

    Gunnersbury boys have yet again surpassed national expectations and achieved phenomenal results.  An impressive 46% of students achieved grades 9-7 totally bucking the national trend this year of declining grades.  In addition, 94% of our students achieved 5 or more GCSEs including English and Maths

    We are incredibly proud of all our Year 11 students who yet again have shown that hard work, teacher support and of course the love and care of their families are a winning combination.  Our students are now able to embark onto their next stage of education and to the fantastic opportunities these grades have provided.  Many congratulations to our Year 11 students!

  • Incredible GCSE Results 2022!

    Published 25/08/22

    We were thrilled to welcome back our Year 11 students today to receive their GCSE results.  The nerves, tension and apprehension could be clearly seen on their faces as they tentatively opened the envelopes to see the grades they had been awarded. 

    Very quickly the sounds of laughter, cheers and excitement were filling the school as our Year 11 celebrated the fantastic results they truly deserved! We were ecstatic for all our students who have achieved yet again a set of amazing results.  

    Our 2022 headlines are:

    30% 8-9 grades

    50% 7-9 grades

    87% 5-9 grades

    95% 4-9 grades

    The Year 11s of 2022 have worked hard throughout the last two years to ensure they were successful today and the consistent work in lessons, at home and through the exam period; supported by teachers and parents was worthwhile.  Our Year 11s now have doors wide open on their very exciting futures.
