HGS Ranked 7th in The Sunday Times Parent Survey for the North of England 2020

At Heckmondwike Grammar School we are delighted with our 2020 exam results and being ranked one of the top schools in the North of England. At GCSE, the government’s progress 8 score showed that on average, in all subjects, students ‘overachieved’ by at least half a grade compared to what was expected of them given their starting points. All of our Year 11 students secured at least five good GCSE grades and 79% of our students achieved five or more GCSEs graded 9-7. In addition, 58% of our Year 11 students secured an impressive eight or more graded 9-7.

At A level, we had similarly impressive results with 78% at grade C or better and 72% of these grades were either A*, A or B. We had over 40 students achieving all grades at A*/A with high proportions of students going on to high calibre Russel Group universities including Oxford and Cambridge.
