Year 10 pupils achieve A* Maths IGCSE a year early

For the third year in a row, a top set of Middles (Year 10) pupils have sat their Maths IGCSE exam a year early and all achieved A*s.

A big well done to: Lizzie, Defne, Louis, Eva, Charlie, Imogen, Millie, Morgan, Saveliy, Francesca, Annabelle, Lily, Amelia, Max, Juliet, Angelika, Jake, Theerat, Mia, Aryan, Valerii, Jake, Thomas, ChengZhi and Zihe.

Niall McCarthy, Teacher of Mathematics said: “Congratulations to everyone in Set 1 – it is a brilliant achievement and a new school record. Your results reflect your hard work and dedication and we are very proud.”  

These pupils will now study for an Additional Mathematics qualification, which looks at topics such as trigonometry and mechanics. It will help extend their knowledge and understanding of Maths, and is a good bridge to help with the transition to A Level or International Baccalaureate Diploma Maths in the Sixth Form.

Along with many other schools, Haileybury offers both GCSEs and IGCSEs (the international version of GCSEs). IGCSEs are independent of Government changes and seen by many as being more rigorous.
