Abbeyfield Year 11 students perform strongly in their GCSE exams.
Headteacher Ian Tucker says: “Once again, the Year 11 students at Abbeyfield School have performed strongly and we are all delighted with their outcomes.”
“This has been an unusually small cohort of students with only 88 students being entered and we are delighted that 66% of our students achieved Level 4+ in Maths and English and 72% achieved grades 9-4 including A*-C in all subjects. Over 20% of entries were graded 9-7 or A*-A in all subjects. English and Maths continue to be high performing subjects with nearly 1 in every 4 students achieving grades 9-7 in English. A notable mention needs to go to Kira Jeffries who achieved 9 grade 9’s and an A* in Further Maths. Strong performances in terms of the very top grades were achieved in the Sciences, English, Maths and Humanities Departments, each of which produced some outstanding results for their students. We look forward to seeing many of them return to join our flourishing sixth form in September. ”
“At a time when we have even more reforms in place with nearly all subjects requiring much more to be taught and learnt and by being based entirely on exams and trying to achieve the new 1-9 grades, students know just what ‘high stakes’ are attached to the exam season. It is a credit to all our students that they have performed so well and that they have shown just what progress they can make.”
“We are all very proud of what our students and staff have achieved – they look set to have made some very strong progress across the board.”
