GCSE Results 2022

Year 11 pupils at Hill House achieved stunning GCSE results this week, despite concerns that the effects of COVID and harsher marking would lead to much lower results than in the previous two years.

The pass rate at grade 4 and above at Doncaster’s independent school was a massive 98%, with 51% of GCSEs earning the top grades of 9 to 7.

Star performers included Eleanor Case and Ella Joshi who both achieved a clean sweep of nine grade 9s, with Alfie Atack and Sophie Tang gaining eight grade nines each.

Head of Senior School Caroline Rogerson was delighted with the pupils’ successes, saying ‘this cohort worked very hard through 2 years of COVID and all the disruption it brought. For them to emerge from this difficult time with such fabulous results is a testament to their resilience and commitment, and to the marvellous support of their teachers and families. We are thrilled that a third of all grades were 9s or 8s, and that only 9 individual results came in below grade 4, out of over 500 GCSEs taken.’

Headmaster David Holland added ‘what is especially pleasing is to see how well rounded our pupils are, which is key factor in a Hill House education. For example, this year has Yorkshire rugby players

Isaac Sprenger and Nate Close getting 13 grades 7 -9 between them, while our county cricketers Nathaniel Wilkes and Henry Holland managed 11 at the same level.

Well known, award winning musicians Poppy Bazlinton and Olivia Willis also claimed 13 between them, and Goalkeeper Maisie Ayton Nicholls earned 7 top grades while also representing Doncaster Hockey Club Ladies 1st XI.
