Year 11 GCSE Results
Students at Hutton CofE Grammar School have once again achieved excellent GCSE results, with exceptional progress being made by students across the year group.
Nearly 90% of boys achieved the important benchmark of achieving 9 - 4 grades in both English and Mathematics. The proportion of strong passes in both subjects (9 – 5) is also pleasing with 70% of boys reaching this threshold.
As GCSEs have become even more rigorous, we are proud of the performance of all our students. 27% of all grades awarded were at A/A* or 9 – 7. 11 students achieved 4 or more ‘gold standard’ grades of 9 or A*.
Narrowly leading the way are Lewis Hamer and Harvey Noble, both with a total of 8 top grades. Both boys achieved 9s in Mathematics and all three Sciences, with Lewis’s other highlights being in Computing, IT, English Lang and Lit. Harvey excelled in Further Maths, RS, PE and Design Technology.
Archie Urey, James Fowler and Max Ormesher all passed 12 full GCSE’s with 7 at the highest possible grades. Archie gained 7 grade 9s in Maths, English Lang and Lit, German, History and 2 Sciences. James gained 5 grade 9s in Biology, Chemistry, Eng Lit, Maths and RS with A*s in Further Maths and Economics. Max achieved 9s in 2 Sciences, History, Maths and both English GCSEs as well as an A* with distinctionin Further Maths. Gabriel Deady-Alston also achieved this accolade – along with a 9 in his GCSE Maths.
Other outstanding performances came from Jack Campy, James Mercer, Marshall Hunt and Lateef Kamal – all of whom achieved 4 grade 9s as well as three other subjects at A/A*
Head teacher Mark Bradshaw said: “I would like to congratulate all Hutton students on their excellent GCSE results this year. Amongst many areas of success, we are particularly pleased to see the very strong results in the core subjects of English and Mathematics and Science. Students have worked extremely hard and these excellent results are a tribute to their commitment and hard work. I would also like to thank their teachers and all my colleagues who have taught and supported students so effectively, and also parents who have nurtured and encouraged students throughout their school lives. Last year students sat reformed GCSEs in English and maths for the first time, while this summer’s cohort are sitting a wider range of reformed subjects. These new exams are the most difficult since the end of O-Levels and all our boys have coped extremely well with the rigours these courses have demanded – as shown by their fantastic results.
“Although today we are, of course we focusing upon celebrating our students’ GCSE results, it is important to remember that Hutton students gain a fully rounded education. Our commitment to developing our students’ character, values, grit and determination, all within a Christian ethos helps to make these achievements possible.”
Head of Sixth Form, John Hill adds, “These excellent results are the platform for students to continue their educational careers in the Sixth Form. These high achieving students have a wealth of talent and proven academic ability. We are very excited about the next steps for these students and supporting them as they prepare for their further studies and future success.”

Year 13 A Level Results
Hutton C of E Grammar School is pleased to announce another excellent set of A Level examination results, maintaining our long standing tradition of examination success. We have also prepared our students for the next stage of their lives – many of whom will be continuing their education at some of the top Universities in the country, including, once again, Oxbridge colleges.
Nearly half of the grades awarded to our A Level students were the top grades of A* - B and 1 in every 5 awarded was either an A* or A.
Effie Roberts is Cambridge bound – her 2 A* in Biology and General Studies and 2 A grades in Geography and History mean she will now move on to read Geography at Corpus Christi College.
Michael Browne also achieved the same outcomes with his top grades in Maths and Further Maths and his A grades in Computer Studies and Physics, He will now continue his studies of Computer Science at Manchester
Olivia Aurangzeb will be joining Michael at Manchester. She will be studying Medicine after scoring 2 A*, an A and a B, her top grades being in Biology and Chemistry.
Another student moving to study Computer Science, this time at Warwick, is Owen Poole. He achieved an A* in Maths and A grades in Further Maths, Computing and Chemistry.
Our Head Boy, Tom Kenyon is off to Nottingham to study Mathematics after achieving an A* in Maths and A grades in Further Maths and Biology.
Richard Jones was successful in gaining the ‘gold standard’ of an A* in both Maths and Further Maths, with an A in Economics which is what he will be reading at UCL.
Special mention must be made of other students too:
George Robinson achieved3 A grades in Biology, Maths and PE and will study Physiotherapy at UCLAN.
Haydn Farrelly is off to study Psychology at Lancaster having gained A* in the subject as well as an A in Biology and a B in Chemistry.
Rachael Green is off to study midwifery at UCLAN and her grades include an A* in English Language and Literature and an A in Psychology.
Ben Martin will be going to Stirling to study Mathematics after achieving AAB grades in Maths, Physics and Product Design.
Joe Pym achieved AAC in Maths, Chemistry and Physics but also gained an A grade in his EPQ, a qualification which provides an opportunity for students to exercise their abilities beyond the A-level syllabus on a largely self-directed project and in their own time. Joe spent his time studying Aviation Technology and the future of supersonic travel.
Joanne Raj also achieved an A in her EPQ which focused on the barriers facing children who have complex needs.
Head teacher Mark Bradshaw commented: ‘The school has a proud tradition of academic excellence which we continue to maintain; once again we are delighted with the accomplishments of our students. There have been some exceptional results with many achieving top grades and successfully progressing to the next stages of their careers, be that at prestigious Universities or the world of work. Students and staff have worked incredibly hard over the last twelve months, supported as always by dedicated parents and carers, and we are very proud of all they have achieved. Our Year 12 students have also laid excellent foundations for the coming year and I am sure they will continue to push themselves in trying to emulate or surpass those who have just left.
I would like, once again, to thank the staff for continually going the extra mile for the students, parents and carers for their continued support and all of our Year 13 students for always giving of their best; their hard work and dedication has clearly paid dividends.’
