GCSE Examination Results Summer 2019
Students at St Birinus School are celebrating a superb set of GCSE results, with boys at the school making fantastic progress and achieving a host of excellent grades.
The figure of 74% of students achieving at least a grade 4 (the equivalent of a C grade) in English and Maths is highly impressive within the context of boys’ achievement nationally. Equally, 53% of students gained at least a grade 5 in both English and Maths.
77% of boys achieved at least a grade 4 in English and 81% secured at least a grade 4 in Maths. At Grade 5 and above, students did brilliantly with 59% successful in English and 64% in Maths. At the very top grades, 24% of all grades in English and 25% in Maths were 7 or above – performances the school is delighted with.
In addition, 64% of students achieved at least a grade 4 in English and Maths and three other subjects – the measure of 5 “good” passes – and 47% of students gained at least a grade 5 in English and Maths and three other subjects – the measure of 5 “strong” passes.
In summary, for the 129 students in the cohort:
- 77% of students gained a grade 4 or above in English
- 81% of students gained a grade 4 or above in Maths
- 22% of students gained a grade 7, 8 or 9 in English
- 26% of students gained a grade 7, 8 or 9 in Maths
Progress measures are extremely strong and demonstrate the progress made by all students within the year group. The average total attainment 8 grade is 48.5 – again well above the national average for boys in 2018 – and the average attainment 8 grade is 4.85.
We are also delighted with the results achieved by the early entry Year 10 GCSE Maths group who achieved a large number of top grades and should be very proud of their achievement.
