ecadmin All News, Upper School News

Students at Elizabeth College have achieved a very pleasing set of results in their GCSE examinations, with 94% graded at 9 to 4 (equivalent to the old A* to C) and 41% graded 9 to 7 (A* to A equivalent).

At the top end 16 (21%) of our Year 11 students gained 9 or more passes at grades 9 to 7 (A*/A equivalent) and two students achieved an impressive clean sweep of 11 passes at grade 9, something achieved by only 800 students in the whole of the UK last year or 0.1%.

96% secured the key measure of 5 or more passes at grades 9 to 4 (A* to C equivalent) including English and Maths.

Principal Jenny Palmer says “This set of results reflects the hard work and commitment that our Year 11 students have invested and the support they have received from our dedicated staff. I am really pleased that almost all students have achieved results which will enable them to move on to the next stage of their education. While the vast majority will now move on to study A levels here, others will undertake a variety of pathways including sporting scholarships, apprenticeships and other vocational training.”

“This Year 11 cohort reflects the broad ability range of our students, many of whom have excelled both academically and in their extra-curricular pursuits, be it playing in the orchestra, debating and public speaking, excelling on the sports field, contributing to community and charitable projects, performing in College productions or making the most of the many other activities available at Elizabeth College. We place a strong emphasis on breadth, commitment and excellence, encouraging students to develop as well balanced and purposeful individuals, ready to flourish in their own areas of interest.”

“I look forward to welcoming into Sixth Form those students who are returning, and wish those moving on to other opportunities the very best in their future education and careers.”
