We hold Open Mornings at regular intervals during the academic year. In addition to our Open Days, we are very happy to provide individual tours of the School.
Claremont Senior School GCSE Results Improve for a Fourth Year in a Row
Claremont Senior School, which was inspected in May 2016 and judged to be outstanding in all areas, added further weight to these judgements by recording their best ever GCSE results. The school surpassed even its 2015 results which saw Claremont topping the league tables in East Sussex. 94% of this year’s results were A* to C grades (including English and Maths) and an astonishing 46% of all their grades were an A*/A grade. Nearly half of all their students achieved five or more A*/A grades and 76% of all grades were A* to B.
Headmaster Giles Perrin was understandably delighted:
‘This is the best crop of GCSE results we have ever had and I am incredibly proud of all the students and staff involved. We are a non-selective school yet our results measure up against any selective school in the county. Tom Dixon achieved eleven A* grades; a third of all our students secured eight or more A*/A grades and we also have students who passed all of their GCSEs with A* to C grades, many of whom would have never thought it a possibility before they arrived at the school. Our attention to detail in preparing our students for public examinations is second to none. It really is astonishing that 46% of our grades were A*/ A. We have been determined to ensure that the very top students are able to secure the top grades and each year we have delivered”
Claremont, on the back of some impressive A Level results last week, has become a centre of genuine academic excellence. Amongst the high flyers were Thomas Dixon, who achieved eleven A* grades; Isabella Walsh with nine A* grades; Harry Gasson secured nine A*/A grades as did Lydia Dunham. Other top performers included: Leo Levinson, Alexandra McKenzie-Sanchez, Sophie Nye, Guy Vernon and Anya White.
Claremont, founded in September 2011, is East Sussex’s youngest secondary school and yet success has followed it since Day 1 . It’s rapid growth and achievements continue to surpass expectations.
Claremont’s Founding Students Fly High Again!
The founding students of Claremont Senior School received their A Level results today and celebrated the latest success in the school’s extraordinary development.
Claremont Senior School, recently rated by Ofsted as Outstanding in every department, has year by year delivered some of the highest examination results in East Sussex and this year is no exception. Many of the school’s founding students, along with their peers in Year 13, celebrated a fantastic crop of A Level results, with 99% of all students securing places at universities of their choice throughout the UK, a 99% pass rate across all A Level subjects and some outstanding individual performances.
Headmaster, Giles Perrin, was understandably delighted. “Our first crop of A Level results marks a significant landmark in the school’s development and I am so proud of all the students and staff involved. Our pledge to the parents and students, who put faith in the school when we first opened, was to deliver an outstanding educational experience and set them up for the next stage of their lives and that is exactly what we have done. We feel that, in all respects, they are ready to move on and such excellent A Level results, right across the board, are the icing on the cake. Since we opened the school, we have been determined to deliver the very highest in academic standards. Our examination results at GCSE and now at A Level have demonstrated that not only do those with the highest academic ability achieve the very top grades and secure places at leading universities, but the value that we add to students of all academic abilities is truly exceptional. Congratulations to all the students and staff involved!”
A number of student secured straight A grades, including Will Bilton, who will read Applied Medical Science at UCL, Guy-Louis Rongier who will read Engineering at Bath and Alex Hoad will read Aerospace Engineering at Surrey University. 75% of all A Level grades were A* – C and a quarter were A*/A. Results in the Performing Arts, including Art and Drama, were particularly high.
