You won’t find The Christian School (Takeley) in any league tables; we are too small. And yet this tiny independent school, with pupils from across the region has excelled again. Last week we celebrated A-level results from two pupils who sat them in Year 11 and gained all A grades at AS and A2-level. The school does not have a sixth form, but has a tradition of allowing pupils to sit AS and A-levels if they are ready.
This year, six pupils were entered for GCSEs in Year 11. Two of the pupils have been at the school from the Juniors, while the others joined in Year 7 or just to do their GCSEs. The results were fantastic with everyone achieving their best.
The statistics will not be available through the league tables but everyone celebrated.
54% of the GCSE grades gained by our six pupils were As or A*s and 90% were C or above. 83% of the pupils gained five A* to C grades including Maths, English and Science. Four of the six were awarded the English Baccalaureate.
