GCSE RESULTS, August 2019

A record figure of over 85% of all GCSE grades were at grade 4 or higher and nearly a third of all grades were at 7 or higher. Over half of all students in the cohort achieved the EBacc standard and 83% of students gained at least a grade 4 in both English and Maths, ensuring that they can smoothly progress to further study, with all doors open to them.

A total of 42 students achieved at least 8 GCSEs at grade 7 or higher, with twins Harry and Jack Clarkson, Sanskriti Sahoo, Alex Jordan and Will Freer achieving an extraordinary total of 38 grade 9s between them.

Most importantly, initial analysis suggests that the progress made by all students from when they started with us in Year 7 is once again extremely high. This cohort deserves to be immensely proud of their achievements. Once again, the hard work and dedication of the students, supported by their parents and their teachers, has paid dividends and the vast majority of these students will be joined by a record number from other schools in starting their sixth form studies here in two weeks’ time.
