GHS Achievements


It’s official –  the Government’s Schools’ League Performance Tables have been published this week and we are very pleased to announce that Grittleton House School is the top performing non-selective school in the county – 81% of pupils gained at least five GCSEs graded A*-C (including English and Maths). Headmaster, Nathan Dawes commented, ‘I am really pleased because it allowed all of our leavers to go on to further studies and attend their first choice of college or sixth form. I am especially proud of the staff and pupils because, as a school, we exceeded our own target pass rate. This means that our added value is second to none – the pupils, in the time that they spent here, met their academic target or exceeded it.

We are delighted to celebrate the achievements of pupils throughout Grittleton House School. The school recognises individual’s academic, artistic and sporting success and qualities like determination, caring for others, thoughtfulness and reliability.
