Congratulations to our Year 11 GCSE students on their successPosted on: 22nd Aug
Congratulations to our Year 11 students on their well deserved GCSE and vocational examination success.
The Sixth Form common room was filled with a mixture of excitement and nerves this morning as students came in from 9am to collect their exam results. A fantastic number of results were at grade 9, with 14% of all examinations taken resulting in grades 8/9 (A* and above) and 25% grade 7-9 (A and above).
Achievement across vocational courses was also stunning, with nine subjects delivering a total of nearly 22% of entries at grade Distinction*; the highest possible grade, and another 30% of entries at grade Distinction/Distinction*.
In all, 81% of students achieved at least the standard pass 4-9 (C to above A*) in English and Mathematics, and some 56% achieved the strong pass 5-9 (B to above A*) in both subjects.
Headteacher Chris Prosser said: "I am delighted and proud of our students' achievements this year. They have shown much resilience and determination to achieve so well in an examination system which has become so challenging in many respects. Congratulations also to the teachers who have expertly taught and supported them, and as ever, the excellent support given by parents."
"As a school community we feel a huge sense of achievement because we know that our Year 11 students now have the skills and attributes to achieve success in the next stage of their careers. We are also delighted that the majority will remain with us in our Sixth Form."
