Students Celebrate Excellent GCSE Results

Posted On: 24/08/17

CRGS GCSE students have produced some excellent results this year and the school is very proud of their achievements. They are a delightful and very talented cohort who have worked hard and have had to cope with the uncertainty of a mixture of new assessment schemes in English and Maths, alongside old style grades in other subjects.

Forty-four students achieved 10 subjects or more graded A* or A and 70% of all grades were A*A, or grade 7 to 9. We are particularly pleased with the new Maths results, in which 45 students achieved a grade 9 and 75% of results were at grade 8 or 9.

Sixteen students achieved at least 10 subjects graded at A*, with our top performers; Charlie Howlett, David Popovici, James Wrathall, Niall McGenity, Dulan Abeysundara and Matthew Smith all achieving 11 or 12 subjects graded at A*.

CRGS is still using a mixture of IGCSE and GCSE. The IGCSE will not be included in the calculation of the relatively new Attainment 8 or Progress 8 figures and this will have a significant impact on any league table which uses these assessment criteria.
