Students eagerly opened their results packs today at St Peter’s and were delighted with the outcomes.


76% of students achieved five or more strong GCSEs (C or above) including English and mathematics.


86% of the 240 students achieved a grade 4 or above in English and 80% did so in mathematics and 78% in both.


Nearly 40 students achieved five or more of the top A* and A grades or their new equivalent, with one student achieving 13 A and A* grades and seven students achieving A* and A grades in all their subjects.


Of those entered for three separate sciences, all the results were at C or above, with well over half (60% in the case of chemistry) at grades A* or A.


75% of students entered for the English Baccalaureate achieved the required standard and the same proportion achieved a C or above in science.


Our Year 11 cohort had 40 more boys than girls, but the overall results buck the traditional national gender imbalance, with boys and girls achieving similar results.


Six students achieved the new outstanding grade 9 in mathematics and eleven did so in English.
