GCSE Results Make Significant Jump
The School continued its improvement in GCSE with a 10% increase in how our students performed with the percentage of students achieving 5 A*-C including English and Maths rising to 36%. Overall 53% of students achieved C grades or above, an increase of 14% on last year. The school's provisional ‘Progress 8’ measure shows we have made significant progress from well below national average to above national average with our progress 8 score standing +0.13. The shift from last year's -0.36 score is a significant jump in progress.
The school is delighted with the results and can build on this great improvement next year with the strong team of teachers we in place. The results for the most able students were particularly pleasing with 29% achieving A*-B grades and many achieving results in line with grammar school students.”
Among the very top performers are: Kate Palos 3A*/ 6A, Sarah Quirk 3A*/ 6A, Lauren Ashenden 9 ‘A’ grades and Myrtle Goldsmith 2A*/6As/2Bs. There are many more with superb grades - well done to all of those students that worked hard towards this success.
