Star performers included Zchenelle Antoine (two 9s, five 8s, two 7s and an A), who was extremely pleased when she saw her results because it proved that “as long as you believe in yourself and put the work in with passion, you can achieve anything you want”

She is looking forward to continuing her studies at Capital’s Sixth Form choosing A-levels in maths, biology, chemistry and history.

“I feel really comfortable here and know that I will do well,” she said.

Principal Marianne Jeanes said: “We are really proud to celebrate the fantastic achievements of our 2018 Y11 Capital students. They have produced the best results ever in English and maths and the highest number of GCSE passes in all subjects.

“This will be a fantastic preparation for A-level and BTEC courses in Capital 6 and beyond. It is remarkable to see students like Jessica Bossom who achieved the top grade 9 in all three sciences plus two more 9s and Zchenelle Antoine, who while taking 10 GCSEs both managed to achieve two 9s and five 8s.

“We thank all involved for their expertise and hard work and know that it was the dedication of both students and staff that ensured these excellent outcomes.”
