Congratulations to our 2021 Year 11 cohort on their fantastic set of GCSE results.
Students have been unbelievable in the way that they have handled their studies and exams through the pandemic. They have shown resilience and determination and worked incredibly hard to make sure that they are personally ready for the next stage of their education.
We are very proud of them all and the results reflect their hard work and dedication and that of their highly skilled teachers and all other staff who have worked with integrity and professionalism to ensure that the Teacher Assessed Grades were reliable and valid.
As always, there were some exceptional individual performances with four students achieving grade 9s in all of their subjects! Nine students achieved a remarkable grade 9 in both English and maths.
With regard to the EBacc suite of qualifications, 129 students achieved a grade 5 in English, maths, science, languages and humanities and 53% of students achieved a standard pass in the EBacc suite of subjects.
When compared to national averages, the vast majority of subjects exceeded national results at both 9-7 and 9-5 grade boundaries.
Overall, 12.8% of students achieved Grade 9 in maths, 4.2% achieved a Grade 9 in English Language and 6.9 achieved a Grade 9 in English Literature, with many more grade 9s were celebrated across all subjects.
Thirty-three students achieved 5 grade 8s or equivalent across a range of subjects (equivalent to the old A* grade).
In terms of overall performance, we are proud to report that 74% of students achieved a standard pass in English and maths (grade 4 or above) and a remarkable 57% achieved a strong pass (grade 5 or above) in these two core subjects.
This is an excellent set of results and a testament to the enthusiasm, ambition and sheer hard work of our students and staff, and unwavering support from parents.
Many of our students have so successfully balanced their academic studies with wide-ranging participation in the arts and sport, including competing at national level, this is an absolute credit to them.
Congratulations to our 2021 cohort.
We wish them all the best for the future.
Be Kind, Work Hard, Develop Your Whole Self
