RESULTS DAYS 2022 (Y11 & Y13)
EXAMS ARE BACK AND RESULTS ARE BETTER THAN EVER AT CRANFORD
25 AUGUST 2022
Cranford students have achieved another set of fantastic GCSE results, despite all the challenges they have faced over the past two years.
Executive Headteacher, Kevin Prunty said: “We are absolutely delighted by the brilliant GCSE results our Year 11 students have achieved today. We knew they wouldn’t let a pandemic hold them back!
Progress is phenomenal with two thirds of students performing well above national expectations.
This is particularly impressive given that 89% entered all EBACC subjects which is more than double the national average and testament to our outstandingly broad and balanced academic curriculum.
There are so many Cranford students who have done exceptionally well it is hard to pick just a few. Some particular stars include:
- Nancy Harkous who achieved an incredible 10 grade 9s, including the top grade 9 in all her attainment 8 subjects, resulting in an attainment score of 90 which cannot be beaten anywhere in the country!
Nancy will continue at Cranford Sixth form and is intending to study Maths Further Maths and Spanish at A level – well done Nancy.
- Tegh Kang, Abdulkhaliq Powell and Prem Pun gained six grade 9s each averaging well above 8 across their subjects. All three intend to remain at Cranford for A levels.
- Ahmad Ahmadi, Hanan Benaissa, Tamana Qadari, Musa Raza, Alia Samad and Ifrah Shehzad managed an amazing 22 grade 9s and 23 grade 8s between them.
- Mafee Ehsan obtained an incredible Value Added score of 4.4, meaning he secured on average well over four grades better than other students nationally from his starting point across every subject. Juan Molano Repollo also scored a Progress 8 score of above 4!
- Sameiksha Sharma who has only been with us for one year after arriving in the UK in September 2021. She didn’t let that hold her back though and her hard work and the support of her teachers have helped her secure an unbelievable 4 grade 9s and 2 grade 8s.
Congratulations to all our students and staff on a truly tremendous set of achievements

Cranford’s tremendous A level success stories this year are even more remarkable when we remember the disruption this cohort suffered in Year 12. For many of these students, this will have been their first ever series of national exams and it was a bumper year for the top A*/A grades which jumped 10% from 2019 to represent 20% of all grades.
Cranford’s results saw significant rises across the top grades and the proportion of students achieving A*- B grades has doubled to 44%.
"We are delighted with the fantastic performances of our A level students this year" said Executive Headteacher Kevin Prunty. "The students have worked extremely hard, in particularly challenging circumstances, and we are very proud of their results.”
“We are also very pleased with the performance of our first cohort of T Level students who have done brilliantly.” Many of these students will now progress directly into employment as Early Years Educators or Digital Production, Design and Development professionals whilst others take up graduate apprenticeships and university offers.
Amongst the many students heading off to Russell group universities, there are some real stand out high fliers:
