25 Aug Year 11 GCSE Results 2016. Record A/A* grades
We have had a fabulous morning celebrating our Year 11’s successes at GCSE. We’ve seen a significant rise in the number of top grades with the percentage of A*s more than double the previous record.
In a highly competitive examination framework, students need to work extremely hard to achieve the top grades and we are thrilled to see so many of students reaching these standards. As a fully comprehensive school with over 70% of students in receipt of the pupil premium, we’re pleased to have made progress on our outcomes from last year.
The key outcomes using the new measures are as follows:
The percentage of students gaining grades A*-C in both Eng and Maths is 45%; the percentage of students securing A*-C in all five EBacc subjects (English, Maths, Science, Languages, Humanities) is 25%, a significant jump from 11.5% last year. Our Attainment 8 grade is C-; this represents the average of the best 8 grades for every student. Progress 8 is still being calculated nationally; we will add this in as soon as we can provide an accurate figure.
Our A/A* grades have increased significantly and we have achieved more than double the previous record for A* grades . Our strongest individual results include the following:
- Daisy Corder 9A*s, 3As
- Ivy Rogers 9A*s, 1A
- Sahar Seidl 9A*s, 1A
- Delilah Sykes 8A*s, 2As
- Ruby Kay Dalwood 7A*s, 3As
- Iqra Finiin 3A*s, 7As
- Carlos Valero 3A*s, 7As
- Savannah Acquah Storey 2A*s, 8As
- Hana Sanei 3A*s, 5As
- Abi Crowther 8As

We’ve seen superb outcomes in various subjects include Music GCSE (100% A*-B and 70%+ A*/A)which is testament to our development as a specialist music school. There have been strong outcomes with the top grades in English, the Sciences, History, Geography, French and Spanish and excellent A*-C rates in PE GCSE, History and the Sciences overall.
It is wonderful to see so many of our students returning to join the Sixth Form. Congratulations to everyone for all your hard work!
