Eight students from Worth School have scooped 80 International GCSEs (IGCSE) between them – all at grade A*.

Gurdip Ahluwalia, Olivia Wilson, Natalie Riley, Alex D’Amario, Barnaby Elwes, Sarena Bhargava, Madeleine Chamberlain and George Townsend were the high-flyers at the school in Turners Hill.

In addition to the 80 A* grades, none of them scored lower than an A in any of their exams.

The rest of their classmates, though, were not far behind.

More than 50 per cent of all grades were at A* or A and 77 per cent were at A* to B.

Anne Lynch, deputy head (academic) said: “We are delighted with these IGCSE results, which are a real tribute to the determination and perseverance of our Year 11 students.

“In addition to the success of our boys, these results are the first set of IGCSE results from girls who joined Worth in Year 7.

“They achieved very highly and are true ambassadors for academic excellence at Worth.”

Headmaster Gino Carminati added: “I am delighted for the students and the staff who taught them. It is the result of hard work by all concerned.”
