Academic Success

Senior school > Curriculum > Academic Success

At Gresham’s we strive to educate the whole child with an emphasis on their intellectual, spiritual and physical development. Happy pupils are successful learners and our broad curriculum delivers a tailored approach to each pupil’s education whether through GCSEs, A levels, BTECs or the IB Diploma. We welcome children of all abilities and our exam results are excellent.

In 2021, our IB Diploma pupils achieved an average score of 37.5 points, 4.5 points above the worldwide average and our A level pupils gained a 100% overall pass rate.

Our GCSE results are consistently high and in 2021 our pupils gained 81% at A*-B (or equivalent).

We pride ourselves on the personalised level of support given to each pupil, many of whom have secured offers from Oxford, Cambridge, Bristol, York and Edinburgh and many other prestigious universities in the UK and abroad.
