GCSE Students buck national trend
Gordon’s students have bucked the national trend, recording excellent results in both A Level and GCSE exams. Almost half of those taking their GCSEs this year were awarded the highest grades; nearly all made the pass rate, the vast majority gaining the historic ‘gold standard’ of five or more GCSE grades, including English Language and Maths. BTEC students also excelled, averaging a merit grade.
Today’s GCSE results, which saw 96% of papers marked for Gordon’s students with a pass or better (Grades 9-4), far outstripped the national average of 73%.
Ninety four per cent of students gained five or more GCSE grades, including English Language and Maths and the percentage of students achieving the highest grades (Grades 9-7) was 48% - over 20 per centage higher than the national average of 26%.
Headmaster Andrew Moss has paid tribute to the students for displaying resilience, determination in what has been a difficult time for them. He said: “I am delighted that the efforts of both staff and students have been reflected in this year’s results.” For a full break down of the results, please click here.
