Outstanding GCSE Results
Headteacher, Brett Miners said:
Students at Falmouth School have, once again, achieved outstanding results this year that recognise both their hard work and commitment across a number of subjects.
In English and Maths this year over 70% of the students achieved a GCSE grade of 4 or better, under the new reformed and more rigorous GCSE assessments. Nationally, English and Maths GCSE grades have been replaced this year with numbers and the Department of Education have indicated that a 4 is the equivalent to a GSCE grade C. We were also delighted to see a large number of students achieving the new top grade 9 in English and Maths, which has only been awarded to very best (top 3%) exam performance nationally in these subjects.
In other subjects GCSE grades are still being reported and students have also achieved outstanding results. In a number of subjects more than 80% of the students achieved excellent grades in their exams. These subjects included Art, Biology, Chemistry, Dance, Drama, Digital Literacy, German, Health and Social Care, Physics and Sport.
These results represent considerable effort by the students, supported all the way through by their teachers and families. The results reflect the commitment and hard work of the students and the quality and dedication of the staff and the results are thoroughly well deserved.
Whilst it is important to celebrate the outcomes achieved by all students of differing abilities, the top 10 students in the year all achieved the top grades in all of their subjects. These truly outstanding outcomes have been achieved by (alphabetically):
It is a pleasure to congratulate so many students on making such good progress through their GCSEs. Our A Level (and equivalent) results in the College last week were also impressive and many of the students will be returning to join Falmouth College in September to continue with their studies. We look forward to building further on their achievements.
