Boys at Isleworth & Syon School continue to out-perform students nationally, as GCSE examination results improve to record levels. 63% of students gained the benchmark of 5 or more A*-C grades including English and mathematics, surpassing the school’s previous record.
Euan Ferguson, Headteacher, said: “At a time when national results continue to show turmoil, with top grades in decline, we are delighted that our boys have continued to excel. It is equally important to know that our boys are out-performing boys nationally and in mixed settings. We congratulate them on their results.”
This year’s cohort had some outstanding individual results, with more than 10 students achieving 8 or more A*/A grades. The top-performing student in Year 11 was Maxwell Omondi, who gained 9 A*s and 1 A grade. Gurpreet Sagoo received an outstanding 8 A*s and 2 As, while Joe Barnes achieved 8 A*s and 1 A. Rounding out the top five were Adhiyan Jeevathol and Tobias Maddock, who both received 7 A*s and 3 As. We are delighted that the boys will be continuing their education here in September by taking a place at our Sixth Form, which has placed in the top 10% for value-added for each of the last ten years.
In the core subjects of English, mathematics and science, students continued to out-perform national scores. Notably, results in English were 19% higher than boys nationally, while in science the results were a staggering 35% better than the national mark. With so many students enrolling into the Sixth Form, we look forward to celebrating their continued success on Advanced Level courses.
