Holmewood Celebrates Record Number of Achievements in the 2022-23 Exam Series

The Holmewood School is delighted to announce their best set of GCSE results to date!


  • 60% of the A-level results were A*-C. 

  • 100% of our A Level Psychology results were A*-C. 

  • 68% of students achieved GCSE 4-9. 

  • 100% of students passed BTEC Creative Digital Media Production.


    This year three students took A Levels in two subjects, which is the highest amount of A Levels taken onsite at Holmewood so far. Eleven GCSE subjects were run at Holmewood this year, and students took different subjects depending on the qualifications they require for their next steps, as well as choosing subjects specific to their interests. 19 students in total took GCSE qualifications this year. 


    Staff at Holmewood are very proud of all students taking exams this year. The barriers faced by Holmewood Students should be acknowledged alongside the dedication required to mitigate them. 


    A special mention goes to Chris who passed all of his A Levels and to Livia who received a B in Psychology. 


    A special mention also goes to Reuben who managed to secure 8-9-8 in the three GCSE sciences, Sophia who received 8’s for GCSE English Literature and German, Thomas B who received 6-5 in GCSE Double Science and Thomas W for his excellent 7 in GCSE English Language. We would also like to mention Henry, who has persevered over several exams series and as a result has passed GCSE Maths. 


    Headteacher Bridget Young said, “I wasn’t sure what to expect this year, as there has been much talk in the media about higher exam grade expectations. I was therefore blown away by the results this year. These results are a testament to the hard work of our students and the dedication of our staff and parents. These results prove that our students are capable of great things with the right support. I would like to take the opportunity to thank the amazing staff at the Upper School under the leadership of Mr Lamb and Ms T Young. I would also like to mention Mr Hardwick who led a calm and effective 2022-23 exams series.I couldn’t be more proud to be the Headteacher of such an amazing school.”
