Congratulations to all our Year 11 girls who collected their GCSE results this morning. We are so proud of you all. 14 girls achieved an amazing five or more GCSEs at grades A and A*. Fantastic!

 


 

GCSE Results 2014

Girls at Wykeham House School are celebrating an excellent year of GCSE results, with 91% of pupils achieving five or more A* to C grades including Maths, English and Science and 14% of grades being A* and nearly 30% of grades at A* and A. Lynn Clarke Headmistress at Wykeham House School said; 'We are very proud of our girls and all the hard work they have carried out to achieve this high standard of GCSE results. Teachers and pupils have worked hard at the School and we are delighted with our excellent results particularly with the changes to the GCSE exams over the last few years.'

 

Girls arrived at School with their family and friends throughout the morning to pick up their results. Mrs Rush whose daughter Emma achieved an outstanding 10A*s was delighted with her results and said, 'Wykeham House has been amazing, Emma has been at the School since she was two years old. She has been able to grow up at her own pace. She is going to King Edward School for her A-levels and is considering pursuing a career in Medical Research.'

 

Ms Astbury whose daughter Jemima also had very good results is very proud of her daughter's achievements and said; 'Jemima has done fantastically well I am so proud of her she has worked really hard and Wykeham House has helped her such a lot we are very happy.' Jemima is going on to study Textiles, Media and Graphics.

 

 


Mia Price who was Head Girl at Wykeham House is pursuing a dancing career at the Brighton Academy and has been offered a fully funded scholarship for three years said; 'Wykeham House is a great school, it has enabled me to juggle my dancing with school work and get to where I am now. I have been at Wykeham House since I was two, it has been like a second home to me.'

 

Mr and Mrs Borwick are very pleased with their daughter Rebecca's results. Rebecca achieved mainly A*s and As, her parents said; 'Wykeham House is a lovely school and Rebecca has really enjoyed her time here.' Rebecca is going to Bay House for her A-levels.

 

 


Girls from the School are continuing their education at a range of colleges and sixth forms following a wide range of options and career choices. The study skills and the positive attitude to work they have learnt at Wykeham House enables them to continue with their academic and working careers successfully. This excellent foundation from Wykeham House enables girls to achieve excellent results at sixth form and university.

 

It has been a busy and exciting year for the School with the successful opening of the Junior Boys' School in September 2013 and with the new Senior Boys' School opening in September 2014. The Junior Boys' School will be moving to new premises on the High Street in Fareham, where they will be joined by the Senior Boys' School, a short walk from the Girls' School, offering parents the unique opportunity to have their children educated separately whilst leaving and collecting them from the same site.

 

 


Wykeham House School is a well established School and has been part of Fareham for over 100 years. It has a very high academic standard, offering pupils individual attention and excellent pastoral care. The School is committed to single sex education and has always enabled girls to progress and fulfil their potential. It is wonderful to be able now to offer this opportunity to boys too.

Wykeham House School celebrates another year of excellent GCSE achievements 2013.

Lynn Clarke Headmistress at Wykeham House is very pleased with the girls’ achievements. ‘Congratulations to all the girls who took their GCSE Examinations this year. We are very proud of the hard work and effort they have put into achieving their grades. I thank the staff for their dedication and hard work in helping the girls achieve the very best results they can.


We have looked carefully at the statistics provided by the examination boards which show that there has been a marked change in standards since last year and this has impacted upon the grades achieved Nationally as well as by our girls. Ofqual, the qualifications regulator, tells us that ‘the standards in some subjects with new qualifications, which have been examined for the first time, have significantly higher standards than the previous qualifications’. Ofqual have also issued a statement telling schools that ‘When this summer’s results are published it will be important to consider the impact of the entry patterns and other changes discussed as they mean that year-on-year comparisons may not be comparing like with like’.

 

Whilst many educators may feel that this is positive others will argue that this is nothing other than political intervention and manipulation. My own view is that the impact of this is that girls who have worked as hard as those in previous years would appear to have achieved lower grades. This does not appear to be fair or just.

 

We have a long-standing and excellent academic record at Wykeham House, this year the School celebrated 100 years of providing education in Fareham. It is also a very exciting time for the School, with the opening of our brand new separate boys’ school in September. This will provide parents in our area with the unique opportunity to drop both their sons and daughters at one site whilst receiving an excellent education in separate Schools.’

 

Girls arrived at the School throughout the morning with their parents to collect their results. Miss Pickering whose daughter Tess has achieved excellent results said, ‘We are very, very pleased with all Tess’ hard work it is a fantastic end to the summer. She has really enjoyed her time at Wykeham House and there will be a big Wykeham House size hole in our lives.’

Sasha Ford who was Head Girl at the School was also very pleased with her results, ‘I am completely relieved that all my hard work has paid off. I had a great time at the School and it is very sad that it has now come to an end.’ Mr Ford said ‘I am really proud of Sasha, the School has made a huge difference and I am really pleased she came to Wykeham House.’

Ms Rowlinson, whose daughter Alice achieved excellent results said ‘I am absolutely thrilled, Alice did really well. Her results are very good especially with grade boundaries changing for this year. Alice has been at the School for two years and a term and it has given her lots of confidence, especially in Science.

Mrs Clubley who came with her daughter Charlotte to pick up her results said ‘I am highly delighted with Charlotte’s achievements, she has worked very hard and I am very pleased. She has been at Wykeham House since the age of two years and three months, she has really spent most of her life here it was definitely the right decision.’

Mrs Zaki whose daughter Hattie has spent the summer volunteering in Tanzania is also very pleased with her daughter’s results. ‘Hattie has done really well, particularly with the change in grade boundaries this year. Hattie is going to Havant College and hopes to pursue a career in paediatric nursing.’ Girls from the School are continuing their education at a variety of colleges and sixth forms following a wide range of options and career choices.
