Hove Park pupils outperformed the national average in their GCSEs, with head teacher Jim Roberts praising their hard work and determination.

In particular, students excelled in Mandarin, the most commonly spoken language in China.

The school said: “All the staff at Hove Park School would like to congratulate students on their GCSE results this summer.

“We have had another year of improved outcomes across a number of key measures, including a rise in the proportion of students gaining a strong pass grade (grade 5 to 9) in both English and maths.

“The proportion of students who achieved a pass in the EBacc (gaining GCSEs in English, maths, two sciences, a humanity and a language) is once again significantly above the national average.

“At Hove Park 35 per cent of our students achieved a pass grade for the EBacc compared with the national average of 24 per cent.

“Our students’ success here once again demonstrates our commitment to a broad curriculum where the majority of students continue to study a language at GCSE.

“For the second year running, the school’s Mandarin Excellence Programme continues to flourish.

“And this year’s Chinese results reflect our continuing strength in this area with a 100 per cent strong pass rate.

“There were also many individual success stories to celebrate, including an increased number of students achieving the top grade 9 in at least one of their subjects.”

The school congratulated a number of individual students including Mohammed Al-Ameeri, Ava Smith, Lorena Puscas, Jacob Alexander, Luca Ellis-Nash, Lyla Amin, Alfie Jukes, Varsha Traynor, Harry Tugwell, Milly Bell, Tyler Connor, Maisie May, Edwyn Wilson-Verrall, Patrick Galvin, Eleni Salli, Farah Choudhury, George Cooper, Grace Maclean, Veronica Tadross, Vale Henin, Alessandro Ishak, Andro Kaldas, Will Preston, Milo Edmond, Antonio Mvelle, Zach Lee, Hidayet Sen and Fidel Arzola.

Mr Roberts said: “Once again our year 11 students have demonstrated what hard work and determination can achieve.

“These results show the school continues to grow, develop and support student success.

“I am very proud of their achievements and wish them all the very best for the future.”
