Students and staff are celebrating a further improvement in GCSE results at Meopham School. We are happy to report our highest ever results for the official Government measure of 5 A*- C grades with English and Maths. Furthermore, we have a record number of students achieving 10 or more GCSE passes at grade C or above, with a 16% rise since last year.

Top performing student, Harpreet Cheema, who achieved 11 A*-B grades with two A*s and 5 As said, “I am so pleased with my A* in English Literature, and my A grades in English Language, Maths and Statistics and double A in Science.” David Luchford, was similarly over the moon, “I am stunned by my 11 A*-Bs. My A*s and As in Maths, Statistics, English Literature, History, and Religious Studies are a great stepping stone for my future.” Ryan Brady, who also achieved an incredible 11 GCSEs at grades A*-B said, “I wish to pursue a career in Science and am overjoyed with my double A grades in Science.”

The school is a small rural school, with a focus on traditional academic subjects. To further increase its focus on academic subjects the school has successfully introduced GCSEs in English Literature and Statistics. Many students have achieved the highest possible results. All students sat the GCSE in English Literature, with 14% of students achieving A*-A grades in English Literature.

Deputy Head, Cat Taylor said “I am delighted that Meopham School continues to go from strength to strength, with the average number of A*-C passes rising to a record high.”

Headteacher Suzanne Dickinson said, “It is wonderful that so many students have achieved such excellent results this year, both at GCSE and at A Level.”

Students at Meopham School are enjoying another successful year of A Level results. Headteacher, Suzanne Dickinson, said, “We are delighted with these fantastic results which are a credit to both the efforts of the students and the dedication of the staff.” Manj Nijjer, Director of Sixth Form added, “It was incredible to see so many happy faces. We have a record number of students who applied to university this year, and every single one of them has had their place confirmed today.”

On Thursday 30th April 2015 the best Maths students in Years 7 and 8 took part in a National Junior Maths Challenge.

To receive a certificate, students had to be placed in the top 40% nationally. It is therefore very pleasing to report that our students achieved one Gold, one Silver and 8 Bronze certificates. In addition Nam Hai Bui achieved a score of 108 which means he has qualified for the Junior Maths Olympiad. This is only open to the top 1200 students across the nation. All of the students who took part deserve great credit as this competition involves a very high level of Mathematics and is quite a daunting prospect for students taking it for the first time.
