Another very strong performance at GCSE level!
The College has achieved another very strong set of results, all the more noteworthy, given the uncertainty of further changes to the examination system this year. The percentage of students who gained 5 good passes at GCSE was 74%. 73% of students passed both English and Maths. There were a number of excellent subject performances including particularly strong results from the core subjects of English, Maths and Science.
- 86% of students gained a good pass in English
- 77% of students gained a good pass in Maths
- 34% of students gained 3 good passes in Biology, Chemistry and Physics
- 71% of students gained 2 good passes in Combined Science
Once again the outcomes for our higher ability students were outstanding with 10% of all passes graded at 8 or 9
“We want to congratulate all of our students on their successes. This year we have seen another excellent performance with so many students achieving well in the core and in their option subjects. Those subjects that achieved over 75% of good passes were Computer Science, Drama, Food, Geography, Electronics, Textiles, Graphics, Resistant Materials, Media Studies, Sociology, ECDL, LAMDA and Higher Project,
We know that everyone has worked incredibly hard to achieve these results. We want to acknowledge the excellent teaching and pastoral care provided by our dedicated staff as well as the encouragement and support of parents.
A significant number of these students will be staying on into our Sixth Form and we look forward to welcoming them back in September!”
