Almost half of GCSE’s graded 7-9 for Westonbirt School’s final all-girl cohort
Westonbirt School are celebrating over 40% of GCSE grades awarded at 7 – 9 which is the equivalent of Grade A and above, according to the historic grading system. Now fully co-ed, Westonbirt is extremely proud of their final all-girl cohort, over a third of whom have achieved top grades 8 and 9 for GCSE English Lit and Lang with 40% attaining grades A and above (7 – 9) at GCSE maths. Other standout results come from Chemistry and Modern Foreign Languages where 40% of grades have been awarded at 8 (the equivalent to A*) and above.
Deputy Head Academic, Simon Balderson, says of their achievement;
“Westonbirt has always prided itself on achieving excellent value-added results and this year is no exception. In the majority of subjects offered at GCSE, pupils achieved at least one grade and, in some cases, over two grades higher than baseline testing suggested they would. This is a result of high-quality teaching, small class sizes and the focus on the individual, which Westonbirt provides for all its pupils.”
With over a third of A levels and BTECs graded at A* just last week, Westonbirt School is immensely proud of both our Year 11 and Year 13 cohorts.
