Another record-breaking set of GCSE results Posted - 23/08/2018Back
We are thrilled to be celebrating another record-breaking year at GCSE and IGCSE with the number of A*, A and 9-7 grades at 71%. An outstanding 47% of all grades were at A*, 9 or 8 – this is the best ever set of GCSE results by this measure, beating 2017’s previous high. Moreover, the proportion of students awarded ‘9s’, the top grade for the very highest achievers under the new grading structure, is exceptional: 23% of exams taken in the “reformed” GCSEs achieved grade ‘9s’. The proportion of these grades awarded nationwide is 4.3%.
Thrilled Headmaster, Mark Hoskins, commented, “I am simply delighted with these tremendous results in such a broad variety of subjects and I’m incredibly proud of our pupils. Their determination and hard groundwork, coupled with outstanding teaching and incredible parental support, have made this possible. When considered alongside the huge contribution they make in so many other areas of school life, this success shines even brighter. Our pupils now have the perfect preparation to thrive in the Sixth Form and I look forward to their further success here at Reed’s at A-Level.”
A quarter of the year group achieved straight A*- A (9-7) grades in their examinations and there were some truly exceptional performances: Rob Mason and Ryan Moss achieved straight grade 9 or A*s in ten subjects; Max Edmondson, Tom Faulks, Chris Woodthorpe, Zac Svarovsky, Rory Millar and Paul Brown achieved straight A* (8/9) grades, with the latter achieving a distinction in Additional Maths as well.
There were also some exceptional results in individual subject areas. History achieved an incredible 92% of grades at A*/A (9-7) and Maths, Physics, Latin, Music and Religious Studies all exceeding 80%.
