Results Day at St Peter’s was another occasion of joy and delight. Students and staff were unsure what to expect given the seismic changes in GCSE syllabuses and the way learning is assessed this year, however, their fears were unfounded as seen in the key success measures, which were up on last year.
The average progress measure for all students was even higher than before. The threshold measures for English and Mathematics were also improved, with well over three-quarters of students gaining a 4 or above in both subjects and the proportion achieving a five or above in both reaching 54%.
42 students were awarded 5 or more grades 7 (or A) or above and well over a quarter of students achieved 3 or more A/7 or above.
“We are delighted with these results,” commented Headteacher, David Todd. “The hard work and determination of students and staff have paid great dividends. It appears that, whatever their prior attainment, students have been able to exceed expectations in terms of progress.”
