Orchard School Bristol is delighted to be celebrating its best ever GCSE results today.  

75% gained at least a C in English – a 10% increase on last year’s results – and 50% of our students gained an A* - C in English and Maths.   

Exceptional grades were also achieved by our Year 9 and 10 students who undertook their Maths GCSEs early, and also three Year 10 students who were awarded AS Levels in Creative Writing.

Our outstanding results are a testament to the hard work put in by students and staff, and are in addition to receiving a ‘Good’ Ofsted rating in October last year.   

Students, staff and family celebrated at the school today with balloons and ice cream.

There have been many personal successes among our school leavers.

Holly Kaur achieved 2 A*s, including Punjabi and Geography, 9 As, an AS Level in Punjabi and a Distinction. She will be heading off to Redland Green in September.

Holly said: “I’m really pleased with my results – I think they’re really good.” Holly’s family also commented how proud they were, and that they knew Holly would do well.

Emily Mortimer, who achieved 6 As, 4 Bs and 2 Distinction* grades, has been accepted to study at St Bede’s in September. She commented: “I’m so happy – I wasn’t expecting these results at all. But I’m really happy with them.”

Luke Winn, who will be attending Redland Green in September, achieved 2 A*s, 7 As, a B and a Distinction *. He was extremely happy with his results.

Year 9 student Max Grant took his Maths GCSE early and gained an A. He said: “It feels so crazy to get an A in Maths – I was hoping for something high as I did well in my mocks, but I wasn’t expecting this.”

In addition, fantastic progress was made by school leaver Mohammed Aldomo, who came to OSB in Year 7 at Level 2. The school is incredibly proud of his achievement.

Headteacher Dr Helen Holman said: “We’re absolutely delighted for our students, staff and of course the school with yet another year in which results have surpassed previous years.

“Our students in Years 9 and 10 have also produced some stunning results and is a taste of what’s to come in the future.

“We wish our students the best of luck on their chosen pathways.”
