GCSE Results 2020
The school’s provisional results indicate a very good performance by the year group as a whole, and some truly impressive individual achievements. Notably, 52% of students achieved a strong pass (grade 5 or above) in English and mathematics; 74% achieved a standard pass (grade 4 or above) in both, which is the minimum entry requirement for the majority of A Level/Level 3 courses. 15% of students achieved the highest grades of 9/8 in Maths, and 11% of students achieved the highest grades of 9/8 in English (Lit.). Well done to all of the students! (Grade 5 is approximately equivalent to the former grade B, and grade 4 to the former grade C.)
Other notable successes this year include students’ performance in Science: over 92% of students achieved a grade 5 or above in Biology, Chemistry and Physics; of these students, 12 achieved a grade 9 in Biology, 12 achieved a grade 9 in Chemistry and 11 achieved a grade 9 in physics – outstanding!
The coveted GCSE grade 9 is designed to be more difficult to achieve than the former A* grade. This year, overall, 106 grade 9 GCSEs across the subjects (6% of all grades) were achieved by Springfield’s students - an excellent achievement, beating last year’s record of 101 grade 9s!
Headteacher, Sara Spivey, stated, “Our students have demonstrated remarkable resilience and optimism during what has been a very unsettling time for everyone. It has been delightful to be able to see them again today and to hand over their well-deserved GCSE grades. They should be proud of all their achievements at school. We wish them every success and happiness for the future. I’d like to thank the teachers and other staff who have supported the students throughout their time at the school. Well done to the whole Springfield community!”
