    An excellent year of achievement at GCSE

    We are delighted to report a good set of GCSE results achieved by students at the school in spite of considerable turmoil and change to GCSE courses nationally.

    95% of the year group achieved GCSE passes at grades A* to C and grade 4 and above in English and Mathematics. The percentage of students achieving 3 or more A*/A grades including grades 7 – 9 in English and Mathematics was 61.1%. 78.3% of students achieved the English Baccalaureate.

    These results represent another excellent year of achievement at GCSE.

    Headteacher, Mark Rodaway said “Congratulations to our hard working students who have done so well to achieve these GCSE results. I am really proud of their achievements across the board. Well done to all students and staff who have worked so hard for these results. I am very pleased with all students, particularly those who exceeded their target grades, this demonstrates how hard they have worked”

    The school has become synonymous over recent years for producing students of a high calibre -and this year is no different with 61% of all students gaining 3 or more A*/A  or 7 – 9 grades.

    Several students achieved fantastic results:

    Dan Millard 7 A*s and 3 grade 9s

    James Ezard 8 A*s and grades 9, 8 and 7

    Ollie King 6A*s, 1A and grades 9, 9 and 7

    Ben Harris 7A*s and grades 9, 7 and 7

    Matthew Hilton 7 A*s, 1A and grades 9, 8 and 7

    Once again, the school also boasts an excellent set of E-Baccalaureate results, with 78% of those students attaining A*-C in English, Maths, History or Geography, the sciences and a language.

    Mr Rodaway believes that the results are a combination of motivated, hardworking students, the hard work and drive of school staff and of course the aspiration of both the students themselves and their parents.

    Following these results, it is expected that the majority of the Calday Grange Grammar School students will continue their education at the school studying A Levels, being joined in the sixth form by students from other schools.

    Mr Rodaway added “The Governing Body and I would like to congratulate all members of our school community, including staff, parents and particularly the students for their hard work and determination over the last two years which led to these excellent results and we wish them every success in their post-16 studies.”
