Record breaking GCSE Results
Year 11 has achieved the best GCSE results (in terms of % A* and A grades) for many years. 70% of all GCSEs taken by this year group have achieved an A* or an A. This is a significant increase from last year and even beats the summer 2015 total by more that 3 percentage points. Well done Year 11, this is an exceptional achievement! Within this total, nearly a quarter of students (35) achieved all A* or A grades (or 9, 8 or 7 for English and Maths). National predictions for the elusive grade 9 suggested that only a few per cent in each cohort will achieve this gold standard of GCSE in English and Maths (the nicknamed A**). Well, Year 11 bucked this trend by achieving 26 grade 9s in English Language (18%), 16 in English Literature (11%) and 23 in Mathematics (15%). Well done to those students and these departments for delivering these marvellous results. In other benchmarks their success continues, they have achieved 100% 5 A-C grades (or 9-4) including English and Maths and have scored an average grade of an A per GCSE.
