We are very proud of our Year 11 students, who have achieved some remarkable results this year in the new, tougher, GCSE examinations.
- A fifth of all GCSEs were top grades 7-9 and 5% were the highest grade 9
- 10% of students achieved at least 8 grades 7 or above (equivalent to A grade)
- In Biology, Chemistry and Physics, more than a third of grades were 7 or above
- In Spanish, 55% of grades were 7 or above
We would like to celebrate the exceptional performance of some of our individual students, including:
Hal Bishop who achieved eight grade 9s, two grade 8s and an A
Elizabeth Neri who achieved seven grade 9s, two grade 8s, one grade 7 and an A*
Deniz Clarke who achieved 3 grade 9s, 2 grade 8s, four grade 7s and 3 A*, including a double A* in Further Maths GCSE
Reyhanissa Haji who achieved four grade 9s, four grade 8s, two grade 7s and two A*
Fatim Kamara who achieved three grade 9s, seven grade 8s, one grade 7 and an A
Our overall headline figures in English and Maths and the English Baccalaureate are broadly in line with last year, with small incremental rises of 1-2% in each.
This has been a year of uncertainty for all schools with the introduction of new qualifications. The exams have increased content and make greater demands on students’ knowledge recall. We are so proud of the way our students rose to the challenge and we look forward to implementing new methods to support students with memorisation and knowledge retention such as knowledge organisers and quizzing.
