GCSEs: Kibworth School has its first results


Students at Holyrood Academy in Chard are again celebrating after a successful results day.

Although the percentage at the 4-grade is relatively steady, there is a difference of 18 per cent between that pass rate and the pass rate at the 5-grade.

Farnham Heath End School is thrilled with their preliminary GCSE results. Pictured are Eleanor Havershon, Lucy Ramsay, and Emma Arguile.

Ms Robinson said: "These results are a testament to everyone's hard work, talent and dedication and our students fully deserve their outstanding grades".

52 of the 90 pupils, almost 60 per cent and up from previous year, gained at least one A* grade and 20 per cent gained six or more A*s.

In English Literature 74 per cent of students achieved a "standard pass" while overall, taking both English qualifications together, the figure rises to 82 per cent. Pictured are Jack Turgoose and Autumn Usher.

Nationally, only 2 to 3 per cent of students were anticipated to achieve this special award on their papers. Pictured are Amber Hutchinson and Sophie Leighton.

Head Teacher, Ms Elaine Purves said: "The results are tribute to the tremendous amount of work our students and staff have put in over the last two years".


The results this year are in a very different format as GCSE English and Maths are Grades 9 - 1 whilst all other subjects are still A* to C, therefore a direct comparison to last year is not possible. "I'm overwhelmed with my results and looking forward to starting my studies to become a doctor".

Students said they were "speechless" and "in shock" as they opened their results.

The A*-G GCSE grades in these subjects are now replaced with a grade scale of 9 to 1 with examinations "designed to assess a more demanding curriculum".

The number of A* equivalent grades in English Literature tripled this year and doubled in English Language.

Isaac, 16, said: "I was very nervous but it has been good".

"I am so pleased for them and I am of course very lucky to have such an incredible group of teachers who are so committed to inspiring their potential".

Grades 8 and 9 are similar to an A*, but only the top two per cent of students in the country receive a 9.
