We are delighted once again with an excellent set of GCSE results, in the year when the new, harder GCSEs have been introduced across a wider range of subjects. 90% achieved a Grade 4 in English, 87% achieved a Grade 4 in Maths and 82% of our students achieved at least a Grade 4 in both English and Maths (equivalent to the old grade C).
We are very proud that 42 students (19% of the year group) have achieved 8 or more grades of A or A* or equivalent across their subjects, despite the fact that the new GCSEs are considerably more demanding. Enabling all our students to achieve the best results they can, while encouraging them to develop a wide range of skills, is one of our key aims, so we are extremely pleased with their performance across the range of subjects. As well as English and Maths, there have been particularly strong results in Sciences, French, Geography, Food Technology and ICT.
Many congratulations to all our students, who have worked really hard, with the support of their teachers and families. We look forward to welcoming many of them into our sixth form shortly.
