Just a week after announcing its best ever A level results, Lytchett Minster School is celebrating record-breaking GCSE results. 73% of the 220 students achieved a standard pass (9-4) and 51% achieved a strong pass (9-5) in both English and Mathematics. A grade 4 pass was achieved by 83% of students in English and 80% in Mathematics and a grade 5 pass was achieved by 71% of students in English. Headmaster Andrew Mead said, “These are absolutely fantastic results which reflect the tremendous hard work of our students and the high quality teaching and tireless support of our teachers.” In addition to the record-breaking results in English and Mathematics there were outstanding performances across a wide range of subjects from the school’s broad curriculum, notably RE, Art, French, PE, Food and Nutrition, Sciences, Music, Resistant Materials, Dance and Drama.

Andrew Mead said, “There are a significant number of students whose final tally of results do not make the headlines, but whose grades represent a magnificent achievement based on the progress they have made since they joined the school. These students also deserve recognition for their hard work and endeavour”.
A large majority of last year’s Year 11 cohort are planning to continue their studies into the school sixth form following A level and/or BTEC Level 3 courses. Andrew Mead said, “We are very proud of all our students. They have been a great year group and we look forward to working with them and supporting them further on the next stage of their educational journey in 2018-2019 at Lytchett.”
The school will be welcoming prospective students and parents to its main Open Evening on Thursday, 20 September (6.00pm) and Sixth Form Open Evening on Thursday, 1 November (6.30pm). More details can be obtained from firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com.
