Mayfield students have reacted to their excellent GCSE results.
Here's what they had to say:

Isabella, from Tonbridge, achieved eleven grade 9s, including Maths and Further Maths. She is both a Sport and Academic scholar at Mayfield and represents the School in Athletics and Netball.

Isabella said: "I worked really hard for these exams and I’m proud I've been able to achieve the grades I wanted. Through the pandemic it has been hard for all of us to stay motivated and focused, but thanks to my friends, family and teachers we made it through."

Cherrie achieved an oustanding nine grade 9s in her GCSEs. She only joined Mayfield a year ago after relocating to Tunbridge Wells, having previously attended school in Hong Kong. She is also an accomplished musician who plays the violin, piano, and ukulele, and has been awarded a Sixth Form Music Scholarship at Mayfield. She said: "Joining in Year 11 and adapting to a new life in the UK has not been easy, but I'm very grateful to have knowledgeable and helpful teachers, and supportive friends, to help me through this massive change. Thank you Mayfield for giving me a place to study in a lovely atmosphere, allowing me to discover my interests and meet lovely people."

Lizzie from Ticehurst achieved ten grade 9s and a grade 8 in her GCSEs. Lizzie, who plays cricket for Mayfield and is part of the Sussex County Cricket team for her age group, said: "Thank you so much to my teachers for all their invaluable help throughout my GCSEs. I’m extremely grateful for my results and can’t wait to continue into Sixth Form at Mayfield doing Maths, Further Maths, Physics and History." Lizzie will shortly be travelling to Poland as part of Mayfield's Model United Nations delegation.

Local girl Megan achieved eight grade 9s and three grade 8s. She is a keen scientist and regular attendee of our STEM Club, and has been awarded a Sixth Form Science Scholarship, where she will be studying Biology, Chemistry, Physics and Maths. She also enjoys drama, achieving the top grade at GCSE, and has recently taken her grade 7 LAMDA exam.

Megan said: "I am delighted with my GCSE results and grateful to all the amazing teachers at Mayfield, I am looking forward to Sixth Form!"
