GCSE Students Celebrate Excellent Results
Sudents have been celebrating an excellent set of GCSE results this morning:
- 77% of all students who sat their GCSE exams achieved at least a Level 4 or above in both English and Maths;
- 69% achieved Level 4 or above in 5 or more subjects, including both English and Maths;
- 52% achieved strong passes (Level 5 or above) in both English and Maths;
- 96.8% of students will have certificates to show they gained 5 or more GCSEs (Grades 9-1).
From their starting points on entry to the school, we expect to find that this cohort of students will have made strong progress when the official data is released by the government later in the year.
- 76% of all GCSE grades achieved were at Level 4 or above, compared to the national figure of 67.8%.
- 22% of all grades were achieved at Level 7 or above.
All of the students have performed well and can be very proud of what they have achieved. Our three top performers were:
Annie Dunbar who gained an incredible 8 GCSEs all at Level 9 (including Further Maths) and two more at Level 8; Edward Huntriss achieved a fantastic 6 GCSEs at Level 9, along with two Level 8’s and a Level 6; and Maisie Hodgson achieved a very impressive 5 GCSEs at Level 9, with three more at Level 8 and a Level 7. Apart from these three, two further students, Ella Hoste and Lincoln Walsh, achieved 3 or more GCSEs at Level 9; and there were another 18 students who gained at least one Level 9.
An equally important way of looking at the results is the progress made or the value that has been added and this year a number of students exceeded their already ambitious targets. Ella Hoste, Lily Kemp and Madeline Mallinson were above target by at least one grade in every one of their nine subjects. Other notable successes include Annie Dunbar, James Metcalfe, Isah Page, Sarah Simpson and Charlotte Unsworth, all of whom scored on average at least one grade above their targets.
Headteacher, Rob Williams, commented,
“This is a tremendous achievement by this cohort of young people. I am very proud of each and every one of them and wish them the very best for the future. The staff team also deserve much praise for their skill and commitment in supporting the students to do so well.”
A record number of students are joining the Sixth Form at Malton in September, with many of our Year 11 students returning and being joined by students coming to us from other local schools.
