Congratulations to our Year 11 and Year 13 students for their tremendous GCSE and A Level results. All their hard work and resilience was well rewarded with two excellent sets of results, which will allow them to progress to the next important stage of their education or training.
At GCSE, results were over half a grade up on average compared with the previous examined year in 2019. Students achieved well across the full range of subjects with half of all students gaining a pass across the full suite of EBacc subjects. Over 80% of students gained a pass in Mathematics and over 90% in English. We look forward to welcoming the majority of students back to our Sixth Form in September.
Year 13 students recorded our highest ever attaining examined set of post 16 results. A third of A level grades were at A or A* and well over half were at A*-B. Approximately two thirds of Applied or Technical grades were at Distinction or above. Over 30 students achieved straight A or A* grades. Students go on to a wonderful range of university courses, apprenticeships and other employment or training opportunities. This includes a very large number of Russell group institutions including Oxbridge. Prestigious courses such as Medicine, Dentistry and Veterinary Science were very well represented amongst the successful applications.
