As part of our international programme, last year for the first time, 3 students from a top senior school in Milan joined Gumley’s 6th form for their AS level studies. Not only did they all gain grades A-C in all of their subjects but they also excelled in Maths with all achieving an A grade and one student additionally gaining an A in Chemistry. More Italian students will be joining us in September for the next academic year.
We were delighted to welcome Councillor Sachin Gupta, Mayor of the London Borough of Hounslow, who spent time talking to and congratulating the students on their achievements which bucks the national trend in exam results. There is much to celebrate! Not only have 83% of our students achieved 5+ A*-C grades significantly higher than the national average, we have seen a 7% increase in 5+ GCSE including English & Maths to 71%. 57 of our students received 5 or above A*/A grades and despite the introduction of the tougher exams in the Sciences, 83% of Physics students and 82% of Biology students gained A*-B grades.
We are proud of all our students and recognize the success of each individual but special congratulations must go to the 16 girls who all gained 9 or more A*/A in all their exams. Particular congratulations go to our Maths students who achieved 82% 5 A* - C , a rise of 9% ; the 170 English Literature students of whom 96% achieved grades A* - C (81% A*-B) and the music students who achieved 100 % A* - A.

MFL students excelled across all languages but especially Italian with 95% of students gaining A*-B (& 76% A*/A).
