2017 GCSE Results
Building on the success and continued improvement of recent years the quality of results have been maintained in a summer examination season which has seen students sitting the new Grade 9 – 1 GCSEs for the first time in Maths and English. Staff and students worked hard to prepare for examinations that no one had seen or previously taken.
The new examinations are more challenging and rigorous containing different content and examination style questions. As a result, a direct comparison with results from previous years is meaningless.
