I am writing to report another excellent set of GCSE results. These are the first GCSEs to have been seriously toughened up by Michael Gove, with all exams taken at the end of two years as opposed to the modular system of recent years. In addition, easier elements of the English Language GCSE (such as speaking and listening) no longer count towards the final grade. It is all the more impressive, therefore, that our boys and girls have done so well.

The number of GCSEs passed at each grade is as follows:

  • A* 811
  • A 792
  • B 208
  • C 13
  • D 1
  • E 0

The following subjects saw at least 90% of grades at A*/A (a huge achievement):

  • Art and Design
  • Biology
  • Chemistry
  • Drama
  • Dutch
  • French
  • Further Maths
  • Geography
  • German
  • Greek
  • History
  • Japanese
  • ICT
  • Mathematics
  • Music
  • PE
  • Physics
  • Russian
  • Spanish

Just as we recognise the successes of our top sportsmen, actors and musicians during the academic year, so now is a good moment to celebrate the achievements of our very best academics – the 68 boys and girls who obtained at least 6 A* grades:
