GCSE Results 2015: Outstanding number of A and A* grades for The Harvey Grammar School’s pupils

Boys at the The Harvey Grammar School celebrated another successful set of results this morning.

Kenneth Gainsford and Ethan Pyott lead the group with 12 GCSE’s each all at A* and A grades.

Head Teacher Scott Norman said: “A year of very hard work from our boys and staff has delivered another outstanding set of GCSE results.

“It’s also very pleasing that all 14 of our Y11 students who are from disadvantaged backgrounds and for whom we receive additional pupil premium funding performed extremely well and gained the 5A*-C including Maths and English benchmark.”
