Successful A level and GCSE results – congratulations!
Our Year 13s and Year 11s are celebrating another very successful year of A level and GCSE examinations results.
Overall, 86% of A level grades were A*-C, 58% were A* – B and almost a third (32%) of the A level examination results were A* – A grades. 81% of the BTec results were graded Merit or above. Our leavers have, once again, gained places at a number of prestigious universities, including Russell Group, to study a diverse range of courses such as Medicine, Economics, History, Languages, Politics, Engineering and many others.
GCSE figures were also impressive: 29% of the grades were A*/A (9-7), 45% A*-B (9-6), and 81% A*-C (9-4). In Music 100% of pupils achieved 4 + pass grades. The English and Maths departments also enjoyed significant successes; the proportion of pupils achieving 9-4 grades for these subjects were 92% and 80%, respectively. The ‘Attainment 8’ measure stands at 53.9 across all subjects as opposed to 53.6 last year.
