St Anne’s celebrates even better GCSE exam results this year.
St Anne’s Year 11 pupils are celebrating the best set of GCSE exam results ever recorded at the school:
As Progress 8 and Attainment 8 measures will not be available nationally until later this term the old measure of 5 A*-C including English and maths is still a key indicator. St. Anne’s reports an outstanding 81% of students achieved this key measure, which is the first time a year group has exceeded 80%.
The results were pleasing in a range of subject areas, some examples include:
Headmistress, Miss Lyn Bourne, is extremely pleased with the results: “It has been an incredible year for St Anne’s. This time last year we were celebrating the best GCSE results for 6 years, putting St Anne’s in the top 1% of schools for progress and top 10% for achievement nationally, together with excellent A Level results. The following term we celebrated achieving ‘Outstanding’ in our Ofsted inspection.
We didn’t think it was going to be possible to top last year’s fantastic achievements but the staff have worked so hard to ensure that our girls have the very best possible chance to succeed. This year group worked very hard indeed and completely deserve these outstanding results. It has been a truly outstanding year!
GCSEs are a gateway to the next stage of our girls' lives so it is wonderful to see so many of them achieve such high standards. It will be great to see them celebrating their results together on Thursday morning, particularly after such excellent A-level results last week.
We are thrilled so many are planning to stay with us for sixth form and we are looking forward to welcoming them on Friday 26th August for our sixth form enrolment day.”
