Once again, many of our Year 11 students demonstrated good or outstanding attainment in their GCSE and IGCSE examinations. This year more than half of the passing grades were at levels 7, 8 or 9, which are the new equivalents of A and A*. The overall results showed an 87% pass rate by subject.
Some individual students in the group obtained as many as ten or eleven IGCSE passes with up to nine of these at A* level.
The ‘AS’ and ‘A’ level results from Years 12 and 13 were very positive. A very small Year 13 group took a total of 18 ‘A’ level examinations between them, with 17 passes, the majority at grades A, B or C. They are now successfully moving on to higher education.
The tracking of our students’ academic progress also includes them taking external diagnostic tests in Years 3, 6 and 9 and the results of these have, once again indicated that our cohorts are performing (on average) higher than the age-related expectations and this raises high expectations for future success stories in the GCSE and ‘A’ level examinations.
I’d like to take this opportunity to congratulate all of our students and teachers for all the dedication and hard work that makes these results happen.
