GCSE success at St Bede's
Pupils and staff were celebrating at St Bede’s today after the publication of the 2017 GCSE results. Overall, results look extremely encouraging with 85% of English results graded at 4 or above and 89% graded 4 and above in maths. The new number grades in English and maths make comparisons with previous years very difficult but there was a significant increase in those achieving the full English Baccalaureate qualification (English, maths, science, history or geography and a modern foreign language) in 2017.
Those students achieving eight or more A*/A grades plus 9 to 7 in English and maths included: Sophie Booth, Ruth Cheek, Charlotte England, Henrietta Franks, Maria Gallagher, Benjamin Harris, Olivia L’Estrange, Adam Neale, Hannah Schmidt, William Semple, Divya Shenny, Maisy Sinclair, Joseph Udoyeh, Orla Wilson and Alexander Wright.
“Congratulations are due to all the students following a fine set of results,” Headteacher Stephen Crabtree was quoted as saying. “This cohort has had to cope with new style exams and it is to their credit that they have done so well. Right across the ability range they have achieved their personal targets and this should be a great source of pride.”
“We did extremely well at A level this year and we are looking forward to this group joining the 6th form shortly and contributing to the continuing success in this area of the school.”
