Congratulations go to this year’s GCSE students on an excellent set of exam results. 93% of GCSEs and IGCSEs awarded in 2012 were at grade C or above with 52% of all grades at A* and A. 75% of all grades were awarded at A*, A or B. This success represents a great deal of hard work and is a worthy tribute to the students and their teachers. A special mention must go to Ehsan Ghaffari who took his GCSEs a year early, achieving 5A*s and 2As. It has been especially satisfying to see that all GCSE students who applied to stay on at Brampton for A level have achieved this goal and are able to study their chosen subjects.
