One third of students gain all A* and A grades.
Many congratulations to the current Year 11 students on a superb set of GCSE results. Just under one in four grades awarded was an A*, while over half were graded A* or A. Although the normal entry is ten subjects, three pupils achieved 11 A*s. The DfE performance tables base their data on the best eight subjects including maths, English and science. Ten candidates achieved all A*s in those best eight and over a third of all candidates gained straight A* and A grades. The student in the middle of the year gained the equivalent of straight A grades which shows how well Woodbridge School looks after the ‘average’ student. Almost all students (98%) passed their GCSEs in the key areas of maths, English and science.
The Headmaster, Neil Tetley commented that ‘This is a fantastic set of results for Woodbridge School students. Although one third of students gained A* and A grades in every subject, this is not just about the students at the top of the year group – all our students should be very proud of their achievements at GCSE. These Year 11 students not only work hard but find the time to enjoy all that the School has to offer whether it be rugby, netball, chess or music. I am delighted for them.’
