GCSE Results Summary

The cancellation of the GSCEs examinations led to teacher assessments determining the results awarded this year.  The internal process for this was rigorous and it was helpful to liaise with other Sabden schools in determining and moderating our approach to this. The results below are for the 9 pupils who attended Y11.

Three pupils achieved 10 GCSE grades with our most successful pupil achieving 7 grade 4/5 qualifications. The remaining pupils in the year group achieved between 2 and 9 passes, all with English and Maths GCSE passes. The average number of qualifications per pupil was slightly down when you compare the figures above to previous years and this reflects the diversity of the year group with some pupils sitting a lower number of qualifications due to their needs.
