With 33% of all grades awarded at 9-7, it is difficult to single out individual students.

We are also tremendously proud of Sadie Edmeads, Stephanie Hughes, Grace Jolliffe, Tuesday Lovegrove, Dylan Smith and Archie Prime who topped the value added charts, achieving well above their individual target grades – a fantastic achievement.

The school also recognises the performance of the following students who achieved 5 or more Grade 9s – Joshua Brennan, Jack Faulkner, Anna Mitchell. Guildford County School Head of School Steve Smith welcomed the exam successes of County’s students: "we are absolutely delighted with the results that once again remind us how talented are the children that we serve here at County.  Early indications suggest that rates of student progress are well above national averages and we are very pleased that so many have elected to stay on and study with us at A level for the next two years.  Staff, parents and the students themselves have worked tirelessly over the last 5 years and the results achieved are a fitting recognition of these endeavours.  Most pleasing for me is that it is possible, every year, to achieve such excellent results, whilst still enjoying a rich school experience, an experience that places high value on study alongside co-curricular activity”. Jack Mayhew, Executive Headteacher commented positively on the results. “Many congratulations to the students on their fine achievements and to the staff who have worked tirelessly to help them achieve such successes. The reputation of the school builds still further as one of academic excellence in a caring community”.
