GCSE Exam Success

The Stonehenge School is once again pleased to report a very good set of exam results, not simply within English and Maths, but also across the wide range of subjects across our varied curriculum.  The results from our Year 11 of 2018 demonstrates the hard work and dedication of our specialist teaching staff, and the extent to which the students were able to take on the challenges of the new 9-1 reformed GCSEs.

Results in both Maths and English were in line with the National averages, with 70% achieving a pass or better in English and 64% achieving a pass in Maths. This means that the year group were able to exceed expectation for the number gaining a pass in both of these subjects, with 59% gaining a grade 4 and above in English and Maths, setting them up for further study at their chosen Further education providers.

We are also celebrating our best ever Science results, with both Combined Science and the three separate sciences (Biology, Chemistry and Physics) achieving the highest number of passes, above the National average for all of the different courses.

Other subjects that achieved excellent results were Philosophy and Ethics, Computer Science, Art, Health and Social Care, PE, History, Geography, Business Studies and Spanish.

Our top performing students included Ben Collett, achieving 3 grade 9s, one grade 8 and 5 grade 7s; Ellie Mearns achieving one grade 8 and 6 grade 7s; and Jac Randle gaining 2 grade 9s, one grade 8 and three grade 6s and 7s. Other high performers included Noah Main, Ben Wilton, Abigail Churcher, Eve Atherton and Dean Smith.

This year has continued to show that we strive for excellence across the whole school, and that many students within the year group were able to achieve higher grades than they were predicted to exceed expectations, across all abilities.
