Exam Results

Statement following our 2018 GCSE results:

I am delighted to share with you good news about the excellent exam results secured by students at the school, well above national at GCSE at every measure, continuing to build on already impressive achievements. These wonderful results were gained despite the many changes to assessment and content in the exams. It is important to pay tribute to the hard work of staff and students and the support of the parents in achieving these fantastic results. Many of our students secured results at the highest grades. These grades are a testament to the hard work of all involved in the school and I am delighted that all our efforts have paid off.

Nationally the percentage of grade 9-4 (the new A*-C grades) were 67%, here at St Aloysius they were 71%. Our most able students also secured better against other students nationally with 31% securing the top grades 9-7 (previously A*A) against 15%.GCSE Maths results at 72% C grade equivalent (Grade 4) were very pleasing and above national. English results continue to be well above national at an outstanding 86% C grade equivalent (grade 4) and I am delighted that the science results improved significantly to two sciences at 62%. Other subjects also secured continued success, exceptionally with eleven departments all securing over 70% A*-C grades under the old grading system, including RE, Art, Graphics, Biology, Chemistry, History, Computer Science, Design Technology, English, Maths and Media Studies. There were some outstanding individual student results including:

Jackie Lee: 7 grade 9, 3 grade 8, 1 grade A*
Tyler Thornton: 1 grade 9, 4 grade 8, 4 grade 7
Mohammed Hussain: 5 grade 9, 2 grade 8, 2 grade A*
Anthony Akinola: 4 grade 9, 1 grade 8, 1 grade 7, 4 grade 6 and 1 grade A*

Congratulations to all of them.

We look forward to welcoming the class of 2018 back to school in our Sixth Form so they can share their success and inspire others. A Level results continue to provide students with fantastic opportunities for progression to university, apprenticeships and employment. Our students on vocational courses also continue to flourish, securing excellent outcomes and progression choices including gaining admissions to competitive courses such as Midwifery, Nursing and Primary Education.

These results will enable our students to face the future with the confidence based on academic excellence, as well as a wealth of experiences, opportunities and skills.
