Congratulations to Y11 Students!

Congratulations to all our Y11 students who achieved outstanding results in this year’s GCSE exams. Nationally results have fallen, particularly in English with new tougher examinations, but our students have once again risen to the challenge.

Headteacher Mr Fowler said “I am proud of the way that the students and staff met the challenge of the new courses and exams and achieved so highly, with the majority meeting or exceeding their targets.”

English and Maths reached an impressive 61%, with 30% of students achieving 3 or more A* and A grades – the highest ever for the school. Students in English achieved 68% A* to C and a record 77% in Maths.  In Ethics - a subject studied by all students at Meadowhead - the figures were even more impressive with 84% of students achieving an A* - C. 

The Ebacc results (students who achieve 5A*-C`s in English, Maths, Humanities, Science and Languages) were again impressive at 27.6% (Nationally 22% of students achieved this in 2013).

Record numbers of students this year have used these excellent results to join our expanding sixth form. Students also secured appropriate college places and apprenticeships and we wish them all well in their future studies.

A full set of results is available under the “Our School” section of the website.
