Millfield pupils are celebrating record GCSE results across 34 subjects, with 84% of grades being 9-5 (A*-B). 94% of grades achieved by our pupils were 9-4 (A*-C), again another record. The national average is 67%. Outstanding achievers Lily De Lacy, Alexander Knox-Jones and Emily Paterson received an amazing 9 GCSEs at grade 9, the highest mark possible.

The fantastic GCSE outcomes follow last week’s record high 12% A* or equivalent grade at A Level, Pre-U and BTEC, and 84.6% A*-C or equivalent grade at A level.  Millfield Sixth Form pupils make up the largest independent school Sixth Form community in the UK. 
Millfield Headmaster, Gavin Horgan, said, “These fantastic results are a testament to all of our pupils’ hard work and dedication and the quality of teaching at Millfield. I’m delighted to see so many multitalented pupils amongst the names listed in our top achievers; not only have they done well academically, but they have also excelled in music, sport and co-curricular activities as well. Amongst our top achievers are a pianist, chellist, singer, a Hickstead Championship winning horse-rider, a representative for the UK team at the European Girls’ Mathematical Olympiad, an England age-group hockey player, a nationally ranked tennis player and a county academy female cricketer. On behalf of the school, I wish all Year 11 pupils’ success as they embark on the next stage of their education.”
