We are excited to announce another year of excellent GCSE results from our students, who have achieved highly both in the grades they have achieved and in the progress they have made. In a year with new courses and grade structures designed to increase academic expectations, we are particularly proud to have sustained our track record of high achievement.
Overall, 40% of grades achieved were at Grades 9-7 (or the equivalent A or A* which still operate in a few subjects). and 82% were at Grades 9-4 (or the equivalent A*- C). Amongst the new qualifications, over a quarter were at Grade 8 or 9 (the old A*), and 12.5% of grades were Grade 9 which is reserved for the top 2% of students. In French this figure was over 20% of grades, and in History and Chemistry over 23%.
A quarter of students achieved at least 8 GCSEs at Grade 7 (A) or better, and nearly two-fifths achieved at least 5 at Grade 7 (A) or better.
Among many outstanding individual performances are those of:
(NB: Grade A** in the list above is an exceptional A* grade in Further Maths GCSE)
We rejoice at these excellent raw grades, and also at the many students who have far exceeded personal goals and school targets. Some of these are in the list above, and we salute also the huge achievements of Amy Woloski, Noa Taylor, Louis Rogove, Miri Goodlink, Noa Ben-Menahem, Edouard Hirsch, Lia Avigdor and Joseph Lever among many others.
Headteacher, Mr Moriarty commented: ‘We are delighted by another set of fabulous GCSE results – now the 4th in our collection and sustaining consistent high standards despite the challenges of new specifications and grade systems. They are testament to the exceptional hard work and dedication of our staff and students alike.’
