GCSE LEVEL RESULTS 2019

Students have rightly been celebrating another great set of GCSE results at Bishop Stopford School. After two years of very hard work in challenging programmes of study, students’ results show continued high performance.

Initial figures indicate that 88% achieved a standard pass in both English and Maths (grade 4 or above), and an impressive 74% achieved a strong pass (grade 5 or above). 64% of students achieved the EBacc – a challenging range of academic subjects (English, Maths, Science, History or Geography and a language), with over two thirds of them achieving a strong pass in this measure. An amazing 46 students – over 20% of the year group - achieved grades 7-9  in at least 8 of their GCSEs (equivalent to the old A/A*).

It is wonderful to see our students so happy today after two years of incredibly hard work. We are thrilled with the performance across all subjects, and initial indications suggest progress has strengthened even further from a strong performance last year. We are particularly proud of those students who have special educational needs and those from disadvantaged backgrounds, who have made significant progress. We cannot underestimate the challenge of the new GCSEs, and it is fitting that we celebrate students’ successes today after two years of dedication to their studies. We wish them all the best as they move on to the next stage of their education.
