Once again, the Misbourne School, located in Great Missenden, has had immense success in recent modular examinations, with forty one students achieving one or more top grades.


Thursday 7th March provided much to celebrate as students from years 10, 11, 12 and 13 received results from exams taken in January. Three year 11 students achieved a perfect score of 100% in one of their modules and another five pupils from year 11 obtained all A/A*s in their modules. Five students from year 10 also achieved A*s in their first science module with one student achieving 2A*s in their two modules.


Charles Turner, a year twelve pupil who achieved two As in Physics and Maths spoke of his delight:


“I’m thrilled with my results. I was really worried about my Physics and Maths score, so it’s such a huge relieve to get two A’s”.


He added:


“I can’t celebrate for too long though, I have another five science exams to revise for in summer. It’s going to be a stressful period!”


Success at The Misbourne School is becoming a new trend following the mammoth level of accomplishment in last year’s GCSE results. In August 2012, an outstanding 86% scored A*- C grades, with achievements including the Art Department securing 13 A*s and six As and the Photography Department getting 13 A*s and nine As. The Physics Department achieved five A*s and four As. the Mathematics Department secured five A*s and 13 As.


There was a similar level of success at A-level with students achieving an overall pass rate of 98% A* - E with 72% of students achieving grades A*- C of which 39% gained A* - B. Twenty-six subject areas achieved a 100% pass rate and in art and photography 63% of students achieved an A* with nine of these students achieving 100% in their final exams.
