Excellence for All

Charter School pupils rise to the challenge of new GCSEs

Pupils at The Charter School are today celebrating another year of outstanding GCSE results.

 

This year is the first year where new GCSEs in Maths and English together with the new grading system of 1-9 appear in the results following government reforms to the exam system.

 

  • 76% of all students in Year 11 gained a standard pass or above in both English and Maths (grade 4 to 9)
  • 61% gaining a strong pass in both English and Maths (grade 5 to 9).
  • 39% of all grades gained this year were A*/A or 7-9 this year
  • 35% of pupils achieved 5 A*/A (or 7-9) grades in their GCSEs, up from 28% 5 A*/A in 2016.
  • 45% of pupils gained the English Baccalaureate (43% in 2016)
  • 74% of pupils gained at least one A*/A grade or equivalent (64% in 2016).

Head teacher Christian Hicks said today; “These are a great set of results, and we are extremely proud of all of our Year 11 students for the hard work and commitment that has led to this success.  Although, in line with Ofqual advice, we are advising that these results cannot be compared directly with previous years, we are confident that they will once again put us among the top performing state schools in the country.  We are also very grateful to our teachers and support staff for their contribution to these results, particularly at a time of great upheaval, uncertainty and change in education”.
