GCSE Exam Success 2019
The Stonehenge School is once again pleased to report an excellent 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 2019 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 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 71% 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 Progress 8 score which is an indicator of how all students within the year group performed within all of their subjects. At a score of +0.03, pupils at The Stonehenge School have performed at least in line with National averages and in some cases have exceeded this level.
Other subjects that achieved excellent results were Art, Biology, Combined Science, Philosophy and Ethics, Computer Science, Finance, Health and Social Care, PE, Engineering, Business Studies and Textiles.
Our top performing students included Deputy Headboy David Willcocks with six grade 9s, one 8, and three 7s; and Headgirl Ellie Wood with two grade 9s, four 8s, and four 7s. Other top performers were Kiara Byron, Joshua Clark and Jordan Markham. In terms of progress made, and demonstrating that our students exceed expectation jack Batstone, Leigh care and Patrick Mullen deserve a particular mention.
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.
