We are pleased that provisional results indicate a good performance by the Year 11 cohort as a whole, and some fantastic individual achievements. Impressively, over 58% of Springfield’s students achieved a strong pass in English and over 51% of students achieved a strong pass in Maths; a strong pass is a grade 5 or above (equivalent to the former grade B). 12% of students achieved the highest grades of 9/8 in Maths, and 10% of students achieved the highest grades of 9/8 in English. 65% of students achieved a standard pass (grade 4 or above) in both English and Maths, which is the minimum entry requirement for the majority of A Level/Level 3 courses. Well done to all of the students!
Other notable successes this year include students’ performance in Science: over 90%, 84% and 87% of students achieved a grade 5 or above in Biology, Chemistry and Physics respectively; of these students, 14 achieved a grade 9 in Biology, 16 achieved a grade 9 in Chemistry and 16 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 and last year grade 9 made up only 4% of all results in England1. This year, overall, 100 grade 9 GCSEs across the subjects (6% of all grades) were achieved by Springfield’s students - an excellent achievement!
