GCSE results on World Book Day marks double celebrations for Beech House School

Date published: 13 March 2019

World Book Day on 7 March was a double celebration for Beech House School’s Year 11 students, who also received their English and mathematics GCSE results that day.

It was a surreal experience for Mr Sartain and Ms Savazzi to hand over the awards to the likes of Marshmallow Man, Alice in Wonderland, Shrek, Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum.

Ms Savazzi was delighted that 92% of her students obtained a Grade 4 or higher in English, already a school record for the subject.

Similarly, Miss Patel was proud of the mathematics results her students achieved. Special mention must go to Nick Dodd – Marshmallow Man – who achieved two grade 9s.

Hiba Javed should also be congratulated for her grade 9 in English.

World Book Day winners were:

  • Senior first place – Samina Rashid (Edward Scissorhands)
  • Senior second place – Maisie Greenwood (Shrek)
  • Senior third place – Joe Bingham (Phantom of the Opera)
  • Year 6 – Zidan Illahi (Nelson Mandela)
  • Year 5 – Charlie Cornell (Mr Stink)
  • Year 3/4 – Sarim Khattak (Fantastic Mr Fox)
  • Nursery – Eleanor NDlovu (Little Red Riding Hood) and Muhammad Rayyaan Shah (Woody)
  • Key Stage 1 - Eesa Tahir (Harry Potter) and Laya Karunanandarajah (Oompa Loompa).

Miss Parkinson won the staff competition in the Lower Prep, whilst Dr Hudson won in the Upper Prep and Senior teachers.
