Outstanding GCSE Results!

There were many smiling faces this morning as Upper Fifth students collected their GCSE results. They have every reason to celebrate, given their phenomenal results with 92% grades at 9-7 (A*/A equivalent) a particularly impressive outcome in the year when reformed GCSEs and numerical grades were introduced for virtually all subjects.

Remarkably, over 1 in 5 results was awarded a top grade ( i.e. Grade 9 or A*), 34 students out of 74 achieved at least eight top grades and 15 girls achieved top grades across the board. Results in the STEM subjects (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) were outstanding with 96% of the Mathematics examinations awarded Grades 9-7, and 43 students out of 74 achieving the elusive Grade 9, while in the challenging Additional Mathematics examination, 77% were awarded the top grade. Students also excelled in creative subjects with 100% of the Art, Drama and Music exams receiving 9-7 grades.

We are really proud of all the pupils who have worked so hard to achieve such excellent results in a year of unprecedented change. These results are a tribute to their strong work ethic, determination and tenacity in the face of brand new specifications.
