Exam Results 2018

Phenomenal Results Propel The Hamble School to the Top

The incredible journey that The Hamble School has been on has been well documented; and today with the publication of the GCSE results of our 2018 cohort, results have soared to an all-time high.

Everyone at the school is delighted to have achieved another set of exceptional results.

In a year where the majority of GCSE entries were in the new, more challenging form with more difficult content and based mostly on final examination rather than coursework, we are thrilled that our students continue to excel.

Outstanding success has been achieved by students with huge increases in top grades achieved across our all areas of our exciting curriculum.
