The Hampstead School has once again seen its GCSE results improve today, with nearly a quarter of all grades receiving an A* or A grade.

The school saw a rise in every area of its results, including a 5 percent rise in students achieving the English Baccalaureate, which measures the percentage of students in a school who achieve 5+ A*-C grades in English, mathematics, two sciences, a foreign language and history or geography at GCSE level.

And headteacher Jacques Szemalikowski spoke of happiness for the students:

“I am so pleased for the students that achieved such success today. I am once again, so proud of our staff that made it happen,” he said.

“In today’s tough climate these results mean so much to young people in terms of prospects and progression opportunities.”
