GCSE Results 2017
A total 78% of students gained five or more GCSEs at grade 4 (the new C) and above, including English and Maths, with an impressive 28% securing A*/A or equivalent (up 7% on last year’s results)
Of particular note this year are the strong results in the core subjects of English, Maths and Science, which were all significantly above national average. In English 33% gained 7 (A) or above, 32% achieved 7 and above in Maths and more than 1 in 4 students secured an A*/A in Science.
This year was the first year of the new grade 9 at GCSE which is designed to identify the very highest achievement, so staff are delighted that in Maths alone students recorded 19 grade 9s – equating to almost 1 in 10 results.
Headteacher Mr Weaver said: “Hard work, dedication and determination are needed to secure good results at GCSE. Every year we ask a lot of both students and staff and so I’m delighted for all our young people who have shown great strength of character and worked to achieve these excellent results.”
There were significant individual successes for 2017 including Isabelle Murray who secured 3 9s, 3 A*s and an A* with distinction and Bilaal Khan who achieved 5 A*s, 3 9s and 2 A grades. Also celebrating great results was Laura Deliu, who got 4 A*s among her eight GCSEs despite receiving treatment for cancer during the course of her studies.
