Millie Crewe is the toast of Framlingham College having scored a breathtaking 10 Grade 9s and one A* during the 2018 GCSE Examinations. Her highly impressive achievement is all the more laudable when it is considered that only 732 students across the UK received straight 9s in 7 or more subjects when results were released in August. It is worth also keeping in mind that more than 590,000 students sat GCSE examinations in 2018 – this places Millie in the top 0.12% of the country.
Millie’s performance included an impressively diverse range of subjects: English Language, English Literature, Mathematics, Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Geography, Latin, French, Spanish and Art and Design. Her breadth of approach to her studies was also reflected in Millie’s whole-hearted commitment to the College’s extensive Co-curricular programme, where she takes a full and leading part in the sporting, musical and theatrical life of the College.
The final position of Millie’s impressive grade haul only emerged in the past week due to a successful remoderation of the College’s Art and Design coursework and examination work with all 31 grades restored to their original standing. This now means that 65% of the College’s Art and Design grades are 9 – 7.
Millie’s results continues the College’s fine record at GCSE with last year’s top student, Zay Mills, scoring an outstanding 8 A*s and two Grade 9s.
The Headmaster, Paul Taylor, says: “ We are immensely proud of Millie. The biggest compliment that we can pay her is that these results came as no surprise to us! They were thoroughly deserved, and it is lovely to see yet another Framlinghamian achieving in the very top national academic echelon, while also continuing to enjoy the full breadth of co-curricular opportunity on offer here.”
