We are once again delighted with this year’s excellent GCSE results, and we are incredibly proud of all of our students. Our English and Mathematics results continue to be exceptionally strong, and in the first year of reforms in most other GCSEs our students have performed exceptionally overall.

A fantastic 89% of pupils achieved grade 4+ (old C grade) in English, with 77% achieving the new grade 5 or above; and in Mathematics 81% achieved a grade 4+ (old C grade). This puts Woolmer Hill well above the initial national figures for 2018 of around 70% grade 4+ for English and Mathematics.

82% of our pupils achieved the Level 2 Basics measure with a standard pass (Grade 4+ in both Mathematics and English) and 61% achieved the Level 2 Basics measure with a strong pass (Grade 5+) in Mathematics and English GCSEs. These figures show an increase on last year’s results. Well done to everyone! Progress measures look set to be exceptional when national data is released in the autumn term.

Headteacher Clare Talbot said “I am delighted that our students have achieved such great results as they have worked really hard. We are very proud of them and wish them well as they move onto the next phase in their education.”
