Summary of 2016 GCSE results

This year's results were pleasing, with most pupils attaining their predicted grades and a number gaining a grade higher than expected. One pupil achieved 10 A* grades and four others achieved all A*-B grades. 12 out of 19 pupils made excellent progress towards the end of their course to achieve a 'B' or better in English, opening up a wider range of A-Level options. 79% passed English (C or above) compared to 60% of pupils nationally. 15 out of 19 pupils (79%) attained a 'B' or better in their Maths GCSE, an outstanding achievement for the class and way above the national figure of 33%.

11% of subjects taken were passed at A*, well beyond the national level of 7%. 28% of subjects taken were passed at A or A*, which is over a quarter of all entries in a mixed ability, non-selective class. This is a good achievement and well above the national level of 21%. At King's, able pupils are stretched and challenged to achieve the best possible grades. 60% of entries were passed at A*, A or B, meaning that three in every five subjects taken were passed at a grade good enough to study the subject at A-Level, again being well above the national level of 42%.
