Significant progress as Orchard continues to improve

Published on 23/08/18

GCSE results at Orchard School Bristol have shown significant progress this year, and demonstrate the improvements the school is making.

There are many personal success stories and the school was pleased to celebrate these results with their hard-working students on results day. 

Headteacher Julia Hinchliffe said: “I would like to thank our committed staff who have helped our students make strong progress this year.

“We are particularly proud of the number of students achieving grade 9s in Spanish, Geography and RE.  Two students achieved 9-9-9 in Biology, Chemistry and Physics and seven students achieved 9s in Maths GCSE. 

“Orchard students are leaving us to go onto exciting courses in sixth forms, colleges, independent schools and apprenticeships across Bristol and we wish them all the very best for their future.”

Among the top performers at Orchard School was Max Grant from Horfield, a former pupil of Filton Avenue Primary.

Max, who was offered a scholarship to Bristol Grammar School, is also in the England Under 16 handball squad.

He said his aim was to go on to university to study biochemistry or maths.

He said: “I always had so much encouragement at Orchard for my sporting and academic ambitions.

“My family have also been incredibly supportive and I am looking forward to the next chapter in my academic life.”

This summer Max spent a week at Cambridge University, experiencing life as an undergraduate.
