  • 68% gaining a strong pass in both English and Maths (grade 5 to 9) – up from 61% last year

  • 39% of all grades gained this year were 7-9 or A*/A this year

  • 36% of pupils achieved five 7-9 (or A*/A) grades in their GCSEs, up from 35% in 2017

  • 51% of pupils gained the English Baccalaureate (45% in 2017)

  • 77% of pupils gained at least one 7-9 or A*/A grade (74% in 2017)

Headteacher Christian Hicks said today; “These fantastic results are the result of our Year 11 students’ hard work and determination over the past two years. We are extremely proud of all of our Year 11 students for their perseverance and commitment to excellence that has led to this success.  Once again, in line with Ofqual advice, we are advising that these results cannot be compared directly with previous years due to the new grading system, but we are very confident that they will once again put us among the very top performing non-selective state schools in the country.  We are also very grateful to our teachers and support staff for their contribution to these excellent results.”

Notes:

New GCSE Grading System: A new grading scale of 9 to 1 was introduced last year, with 9 being the top grade. This will allow greater differentiation between students and will help distinguish the new GCSEs from previous versions. Last year the new system applied to Maths, English language and English literature, and this year includes science, computing, geography, history, art, French, Latin, Spanish, drama, music, PE, religious studies and citizenship. All other GCSE courses will introduce the new grading system by June 2019.
