GCSE Results 2021: Nothing short of EXCEPTIONAL!
This year continues to show us the upwards trajectory of our results with year-on-year improvements across the boards.
Despite a hugely challenging year, the resilience and tenacity of the Y11 students complemented by the incredible support of experienced and passionate teachers has yielded one of the best set of GCSE results seen over several years. We are delighted that all our Centre Assessed Grades have been awarded to our students. This is a testament to the hard work of the staff in ensuring that all CAGs were decided in a professional and honest way using a range of students' work.
For the first time since the introduction of the new grading system and headline measures, we are proud to announce that our GCSE students scored an A8 figure of 6.1, implying that our students were averaging a grade 6 in their subjects. This continues the past 3 year upward trend seen for this measure. Another exceptional achievement is 39% of all grades achieved were grades 7 and above.
79% of our students achieved a grade 5 and above in both English and Maths, an improvement of 22% from last year and 33% from 2019.
85% of our students achieved grade 5 or better in English and 86% achieved grade 5 and above in Maths. Both these measures have increased by more than 15% compared to last year. Phenomenal success is seen in Science as well, where 76% of our students have been successful in achieving at least two GCSE Science grades at grade 5 and above. This measure is 14% better than last year and 20% better than 2019. 70% of our students achieved a grade 5 or better in a Humanity subject (History or Geography), 73% achieved a grade 5 or better in Religious Studies and 82% achieved a grade 5 or better in Spanish. We have see improvements of percentage students achieving grade 5 and above in most of our subjects compared to the last two years
