As students collect their GCSE results today we are delighted to announce a 10% improvement on last year’s results.
In last year’s ‘top achievers category’ the girls beat the boys but this year we’re pleased to see the gender split is almost even with individual results including a large number of A* and A grades.
Well done to all our students and we wish them every success as they progress on to our Sixth Form at GBHS or College.
Congratulations to all our sixth form students collecting their exam results today. It has been an exciting morning for our students, their parents and of course the staff at GBHS as results were opened to find out the grades that had been achieved and whether their University place had been obtained.
We are delighted with the results this year with a 99% pass rate and 47% achieving A* to B, reflecting their incredible hard work as well as that of their teachers. It is a very exciting time for them and we all wish them every success for the future.
On 24th/25th June Great Baddow High STEM (Science, technology, engineering and maths) project students competed in the National Finals for the UK Rocketry Challenge, held at Charterhouse School, Godalming.
Over many weeks two teams designed, built, tested and modified rockets to try to gain a height of 825ft and a flight time of 48-50 seconds.
They needed to safely carry a payload of 2 uncooked hen eggs.
Both teams’ rockets flew well and they achieved 7th and 8th positions. Details and additional photos can be seen at www.ukayroc.org.uk.
