We have seen increases across the board in our GCSE results and we are absolutely delighted for all of our wonderful students and staff.
A total of 69% of students achieved five A*-C grades, including English and Maths, an increase of 9% from last year.
The overall pass rate was 98% and 77% of students achieved five or more A*-C grades, which represented another 9% rise from 2014. Nineteen per cent of students achieved A/A* grades.
There were further increases over the last year for expected progress in both English and Maths.
A total of 66% of students achieved the expected progress in English – a rise of 6% and Maths increased to 75%, a rise of 7% from 2014. A high number of students also exceeded expected progress.
All of the hard work done by our students has paid off and today is a time to celebrate their dedication. We would also like to thank the staff who put so much time and effort into supporting our young people with their studies.
We are a real community here at Saint John Houghton and we couldn’t have achieved these excellent results without the support of our parents and we would like to wish all of our students every success and happiness in the future.
