Box Hill School in Mickleham, one of Bright World's partner schools, has won the Good Schools Guide Award for 'The Highest Performing English Independent School for Boys taking Mathematics (Edexcel Certificate)'.
Headmaster, Mr Corydon Lowde said, 'We are absolutely delighted to be acknowledged in this way for our excellence in maths. This is a very proud moment for Box Hill School and we are sure it will inspire and encourage all pupils who are currently working towards their final examinations in maths.
For a few years now, we have been fast-tracking top set maths into early GCSEs and continuing with further maths at GCSE level. A*-C Pass rates at 98% in a non-selective school are testament to the hard work of everyone, both staff and pupils'.
Ralph Lucas, Editor of The Good Schools Guide, comments, 'Our annual awards scheme is designed to recognise and reward excellence in teaching in every subject area at both GCSE and A Level or equivalent. Our awards give individual teachers and departments, where teaching is at its very best, the recognition they deserve'.
The Good Schools Guide Awards are based on a series of calculations which take into account relative popularity and performance of the subject, absolute performance, and percentage of pupils taking the subject.
The Good Schools Guide is the largest independent guide to UK schools. The 20th Edition is available now and contains 1100 good schools across both the independent and state sectors.
Well done to Box Hill School for their fantastic achievement!
