Examination Results

Once again we are delighted to report a set of excellent A Level results. Although it is too soon to have a final picture, the majority of our candidates have achieved places at their chosen universities.

The new A Levels were intended to be significantly tougher for candidates so we are delighted that our 2018 leavers have more than equalled the achievements of recent years, with the most common grade once again being A* (over 35% of examinations) and with nearly 70% of examinations graded at A* or A.  Well done to the twenty-eight pupils of the cohort of 127 who achieved 3 or more A*.

A radical shake up of GCSEs , leading to a new grade structure together with tougher exams, meant that pupils and teachers alike were not quite sure what to expect this year.   We were delighted,however, by the performances of our Fifth Form which saw some really excellent results across the board.

With the new grade 9 representing the very top level of the A* band, we were pleased that overall 41.1% of GCSEs examined under the reformed system were awarded a 9.  Some subjects, notably Modern Foreign Languages, have retained the “old” grade bands and we have seen a total 84.9% of exams sat by the Fifth Form (year 11) being awarded 9/8/7 or an A*/A.   Thirty-nine of the year group of 125 pupils received a total of nine or more 9/8/A* grades, with eleven of them being awarded a superb clean sweep of ten top grades. A very commendable 98.3% of all exams were graded 9-5 or A*-B, well inline with previous years’ results.
