GCSE 2021 Results

2021 GCSE Results

Staff and pupils at St George's are celebrating outstanding success in this year's GCSE examinations. We are particularly proud of our pupils given the very challenging circumstances they have faced over that past two years. They engaged effectively with remote learning and returned to school in a determined, focused and optimistic manner.

Pupils' GCSE results were awarded through a rigorous process of teacher assessed grades which were benchmarked against national standards. Grade inflation has not occurred and we are fully confident that the grades awarded truly reflect the efforts and abilities of the pupils.

Highlights include:

26% of pupils obtained grades 9-8

40% of pupils obtained grade 9-7

Some outstanding individual performances among many included:

Oliver Shultz - 9 grade 9's

Delina Gabriel -8 grade 9's

Emma Zefi - 7 grade 9's and two grade 8's

We are proud that the vast majority of pupils achieved or surpassed their grades culminating in a Progress 8 score 0.7 for the whole year group. This represents 'outstanding' progress for pupils which will enable the majority to transition to our Sixth Form where they will flourish. we wish all pupils who are taking up opportunities elsewhere every success.

 

Ms Katie Mulligan, Head of Year 11 commented: 'Despite the disruption over the last two years this year group never became despondent. They engaged in remote learning willingly and with enthusiasm and on return to school they immediately resumed their routines - diligence in lessons, attending all revision sessions and studying very hard for internal examinations. It has been a pleasure to work with them and their families and I look forward to seeing many of them to return to our Sixth Form in September'

Mr Gregory, Head of School, stated:'These outstanding GCSE results are testament to the dedicated approach from our Year 11 pupils who maintained focus and a positive attitude despite very challenging circumstances. I would also like to pay tribute to their teachers who supported them and taught very well remotely and, on their return, to school. Many thanks also to the families who supported us with these pupils over that past 5 years.’
