Congratulations to Y11 on the new CGSE exams!

This year has seen significant changes in the GCSE system. New exam specifications have been introduced with an increase in course content.  These are examined by an increased number of more challenging written exams and a new grading system for GCSE English and Maths, with Grades 9 to 1 replacing A* to G.

   

At this stage it is unclear as how this combination of changes will affect national results.  However we are pleased to report that 71% of pupils achieved a new grade 4-9 in English Language with 70% in English Literature.  These grades are equivalent to C-A*.  In Maths 63% of pupils achieved grades 4-9 with 58% of pupils achieving these grades in English and Maths combined.

Many pupils achieved the new grades 7-9 in English and Maths, or the more recognised equivalent A/A* grades in other subjects.

Our pupils are now making final decisions about their Post-16 choices, based on their results.  All those who are staying on in the Meadowhead 6th Form will be seen by our staff to confirm the arrangements for September.   If any Y11 needs further advice about choices at Meadowhead or elsewhere they should see Mrs Evans (Careers Advice and Guidance) or a member of the Sixth Form Team (Mrs Burdekin, Mr Sheppard).

 

Well done again to our Y11 pupils, and to the staff, for their commitment and hard work and thanks to the parents and families for their continued support of their children and of the school.
