GCSE Results 2018 – Year 11 pupils raise the bar once again!  

Proud GFS pupils today collected another stellar set of GCSE results with year on year outcomes improving further still. Overall progress scores, once confirmed, are expected to be extremely strong with some 24% of all grades now in the highest 7-9 category 

Performance in English and Mathematics remains exceptionally high with 35% and 30% of pupils achieving the top grade 7-9 category respectively. In English 90% of pupils achieved grade 4 (old money grade ‘C’) or higher.     

Significant gains have also been made in the English Baccalaureate subject group where progress in Physics, Chemistry, Biology, Combined Science, History, Geography and Computing has hit record highs. 

In the Open subject category pupils have enjoyed substantial gains in both Physical Education and Art. 

Headteacher, Mr Spiers, said “we are absolutely delighted with pupils’ results today and this is testament to all their hard work and to the support from parents, teachers and governors. To improve further on the exceptional outcomes from last year, even given the new tougher examinations, is a wonderful achievement for all involved at GFS and sets our pupils up well for post-16 education
