GCSE RESULTS 2023
It has been wonderful to celebrate with our Year 11 students this morning as they received their GCSE results - the culmination of five years of hard work.
Although this cohort experienced considerable disruption to their in-school education in their formative years, it is clear that the need to work more independently has spurred them on because this summer's results have exceeded all expectations and predictions.
Notably composed and resilient in their approach to sitting their exams this summer, this cohort has been rewarded with half of all their results achieving the top A/A*/A** grades, three quarters achieving A**-B and with several students achieving a clean sweep of top 9-7 grades (A**-A) across all their 10 or 11 subjects. In English over three quarters of the year group achieved 9-7 grades with over two thirds of grades in History and Geography also achieving these A grade equivalents.
Whilst it is clear that grade boundaries have risen - this year’s results are higher than those of the pre-pandemic years and we are very proud of this cohort. Interestingly almost every student in the year secured an A grade in at least one of their GCSE subjects which will give them a great foundation for their A Level studies.
We congratulate all students for their resilience throughout their GCSE courses as well as at Keystage 3 and we look forward to seeing them thrive as they move on to their A Level courses and as leaders and role models at the top of the School.
