GCSE Examination Results Summer 2017
Students at St Birinus School have achieved a very impressive set of examination results at Key Stage 4 in the year in which students receive grades in the new GCSEs in English and Maths for the first time.
Headteacher John Marston said:
“This is a year of significant change to the examination system and we are delighted that our results have held up so well. It is early days but we are confident that these results will continue the trend of boys at St Birinus significantly outperforming boys nationally. Students and staff have worked incredibly hard to produce these impressive results and they are all to be congratulated. There are many students today who have achieved the very top grades and others who have fulfilled their potential or overcome significant challenges to achieve grades which they richly deserve. We are very proud of them all and wish them well for their futures, either studying at Didcot Sixth Form or elsewhere. We would also like to thank their parents and carers for their ongoing support of their sons and the school. These results are further confirmation of the direction in which the school is travelling and the quality of the broad, all-round education which we provide for students of all abilities and backgrounds.”
The figure of 59% of students achieving at least a grade 4 in English and Maths and at least three other A*-C grades in their other subjects was highly impressive within the context of boys’ achievement. In addition, 68% of students achieved at least a grade 4 in English or English Literature and 73% achieved at least a grade 4 in Maths.
Performances of particular note were the following students who all achieved a grade 9 – the new, deliberately very challenging, highest grade - in the new Maths GCSE: Corey Baillie, Ben Lockett, Jon Collins, Matthew Elkins, Ben Nimmo and Josh Soames (who also achieved a grade 9 in English Literature!). A special mention must also go to the Art Department for their outstanding results – every student who took Fine Art GCSE achieved at least a C grade and 96% of students who studied Photography got a C grade or better, both amazing achievements!
We are very proud of our Year 11 of 2017 and thank them for their contribution to St Birinus School.
