Letter from the head


Dear Parents and Carers,

Our Year 11 students have done exceptionally well and I am very proud of all their achievements. This success demonstrates the strength of the partnership between the school, our students and parents/carers, as well as showing what hard work, high quality teaching and determination can achieve. We wish all our students the very best for the future.

Best wishes, Jim Roberts


GCSE results 2018


All the staff at Hove Park School would like to congratulate students on their GCSE results this summer!

There has been a second consecutive year of improved outcomes across a number of key measures, including a 5% rise in the proportion of students gaining a pass grade in both English and maths.

The proportion of students who achieved a pass in the EBACC (gaining GCSEs in English, maths, 2 x sciences, a humanity and a language) has also improved by 5% to 37%. The national figure last year for this measure was 24% and our students’ success here once again demonstrates our commitment to a broad curriculum where the majority of students continue to study a language at GCSE. The school’s Mandarin Excellence Programme continues to flourish and this year’s Chinese results reflect our continuing strength in this area with a 100% pass rate.

There has also been a significant improvement in the attainment of students for whom we receive pupil premium funding, reflecting the effectiveness of the comprehensive support we provide at Hove Park.

There were also many individual success stories to celebrate, including the following 22 students who all achieved the top Grade 9 in at least one of their subjects. Well done to:

Harriet Brown, Jess Brown, Keke Bungay, Carter Carey Poynting, Ruby Cooper, Noemi Costa, Rosie Cresdee-Brace, Siena De Antonis, Jack Fussey, Maia Holland, Elsie Houghton, Holly Howard-Fegan, Will Kennett, Kit Kniveton, Mia Lavaccini, Joe Law, Jonah Mitchell, Eben Roddis, Stanley Scott, Daniel Simpkin, Louis Smith and Wilson Toy.


Celebrating achievement


I’m really pleased with the results of the 2018 cohort. The hard work and dedication from the students over the past five years has been rewarded with some fantastic results. Overall the school results have improved from last year and we have some remarkable success stories. We have also seen improvements across key groups such as our PP and HPA students. Huge credit goes to the amazing teaching staff at Hove Park who have supported the students in their learning journey. It has been so lovely to see so many happy, smiling faces on results day – a true reward for the hard work that has been put in. Good luck to the HPS cohort of 2018 in all of their future endeavours.

Steve Frimpon, Head of Year 11, 2017-18


A-level results


Hove Park School is delighted that so many of our A-level students have deservedly done so well. They have worked hard and their superb accomplishments will enable them to progress into their chosen next steps which range from higher education courses to employment and apprenticeships.

In year 13 the sixth form had lots of success with excellent results coming from Maths A-level and Product Design A-level where all students achieved a C grade or higher. This is also testament to the hard working staff at Hove Park School and Sixth form.

This year’s results have maintained our excellent standards and in terms of student progress (VA) improved on the outcomes from last year.

Individual success stories include:

  • Olivia Eckworth, who achieved A, Distinction*, and a B in Travel, Level 3 BTEC sport and Geography respectively. Olivia will now go on to study Sport Media at the University of Chichester.
  • Sian Reilly, who achieved B,B,C in Sociology, English Literature and History. She will now go on to study Politics and International relations with a year in North America at the University of Kent.
  • Rafi Ali who achieved A,C,C grades in Psychology, Biology and Maths. Rafi will now go on to study Accounting and Finance at the University of Sussex.
  • Richard Chan, who arrived at the school in year 11 from China and spoke little English, has had fantastic success. He achieved a B in Maths and a B in Physics in August 2017 and has now completed his third A-level in Further Maths achieving a C. Whilst studying this year he has also been applying to become a commercial airline pilot.

Head teacher Jim Roberts was pleased with the results and praised the hard work of both the students and staff. He said “We are very proud of all our students and what they have accomplished. Our results this year once again show what hard work, high quality teaching and determination can achieve. We wish them all the very best for the future."
