The Oratory School has once again celebrated a successful set of GCSE results, with 18% of grade 9s, 35% of grades in the 9-8 category, 53% at 9-7, and 99% at grade 4 or higher.
There were some excellent results at the top of the cohort and the highest achievers included: Ben Machin who recorded an impressive eleven grade 9s; Mayaz Shabab with nine 9s and one 8; Eustache Lamort de Gail who attained eight 9s, two 8s and one 7; Tolu Awoniyi with eight 9s, one 8 and two 7s; Ryan Iweze with two 9s, seven 8s, one 7, and one 6; Harry Blair who achieved four 8s, five 7s and one 6.
The Head Master, Mr Joe Smith, said in reaction to the results: “I am delighted with these results, which are testament to the hard work of the young men, which in turn enabled us to submit strong Centre Assessment Grades to the exam boards. For over half of the results to be graded 7 and above (A - A*) is a fine achievement for a school with a broad ability spread. These young people should be congratulated for their efforts and achievements as they look forward with excitement to their 6th Form studies.”
