Last year saw us achieve our best ever GCSE results and we are delighted to say that it looks as if we have managed to maintain that level of performance this year. At least 81% of students have met the government’s ‘basics’ measure of 9-4 grades in both Maths and English, with 61% managing to secure 9-5 grades in both subjects.
At the top end, a very impressive 27% of students gained at least five 9-7 grades (equivalent to the old A*-A grades) with at least forty five students gaining 9-7 grades in eight or more subjects.
Amongst so many success stories, special mention goes to those students who gained the very top grades of 8 or 9 in at least eight subjects. They were: Imogen Walsh, Jade Carlin, Amy Wright, Cameron Green, Lewis Hindle, Ella Hoskinson, Amber Heckstall-Smith, Tom Davenport, Jada Moses, Jordan Jones, Marcus Mackay and Finlay Williams. Hats off to all of them!
I cannot speak highly enough of the staff and students for the way they approached all the challenges presented by the new, tougher GCSE specifications. It has taken a huge effort over quite a period of time and we are really pleased to see this effort being reflected in the final results.
