Exams Analysis 2022-23

We are once again delighted to report an exceptional set of GCSE, Cam Tech and A level results for the academic year 2022-23 which reflect the hard work of both our pupils and staff.

For our sixth form cohort there were no real surprises in store, with results broadly matching predicted grades and no significant drop in comparison to the ‘COVID’ years, which much of the press has been reporting, indeed we saw a rise in our A-B passes over last year’s results. 

The year 13 students achieved an overall pass rate of 98%, with well over a third of entries being graded A-B; highlights include: Chloe Frost who was awarded the highest grades in the Cambridge Technical Business Studies Extended Diploma Course (equivalent to 3 A-levels); Joseph Hearne awarded distinction in each of the Business Studies categories; Ellis MacIntosh who achieved Distinction and Distinction* grades in Business Studies as well as a Distinction* in Information Technology; Milo Vieceli-Mellor for his A in geography; Julian Romaniv for B’s in Law and Business Studies, Ademide Ajiboye for B in Law and Distinction* in Information Technology; Raza Sarwar for B’s in Law and Mathematics and Christabel Nyamtowo for B in Design Technology. We know that most of our departing sixth formers have plans in place for their future studies and are happy with their university offers.

At Key Stage 4 many subjects had 100% passes at grades 9-4 including: drama, food and nutrition, languages, further mathematics, music and statistics. The percentage of candidates receiving 5 or more passes at grade 9-4, inclusive of mathematics and English, increased over our 2022 performance. Indeed, our English and mathematics departments have received their best results ever, which means we continue to be well ahead of national averages in these two core subjects and our science department has seen 9-4 pass rates of 90-95%. As a non-selective school, we are delighted with the overall achievements of our students who continue to achieve results above national figures. Particular praise should go to Rebecca Sharp who received grade 9’s in eight subjects. We would also like to congratulate Ismael Alom, James Bellingham, Will Byrne, Sze Wing Chan, Grace Constant, Charlie Cunnington, William Gaillard, Ana Mohedano De Las Cuevas, Tyler Roach, Harry Smith, David Solomon, Erik Treis, Brandon Venn and Luke Wilson who have achieved incredibly impressive sets of results across the board with a number of grade 9’s and 8’s included.

We thank all the subject teachers for providing such an excellent teaching and learning experience for our 2023 GCSE/GCE cohort. Our students continue to achieve highly across all subjects, which underlines our broad and balanced curriculum.

We wish the 2023 GCSE cohort well as they continue their studies and we very much look forward to welcoming those students who have enrolled in our Sixth Form back on Wednesday 6th September 2023.
