GCSE RESULTS 2018

Following last week’s excellent A Level results, Bishop Stopford School is delighted that Year 11 students have also achieved very highly in their GCSEs.

Initial headline figures indicate that, 91% of students achieved a standard pass (grade 4 or above), and 71% achieved a strong pass (grade 5 or above) in both English and Maths.

Also, 90% of students achieved at least a standard pass in five or more subjects, including English and Maths (equivalent to C or above).

An impressive 30 students achieved top grades in at least 8 of their GCSEs (grades 7-9, equivalent to A/A*).

Jill Silverthorne, Headteacher, said, ‘It is a real tribute to students and staff that our GCSE results are so strong this year when so much of the curriculum has undergone significant change. Our students responded very positively to the changes with their hard work, and the staff’s professionalism ensured that Year 11 were extremely well prepared for their final examinations.

‘What is particularly pleasing is that students of all abilities continue to make very good progress at Bishop Stopford - whatever their starting points. We wish all of them the very best as they move into the next phase of compulsory education.’
