A Superb Set of GCSE Results

We are delighted to report a superb set of GCSE results achieved by students at the school.

We are delighted to report a superb set of GCSE results achieved by students at the school.

  • 2019 is the first year when students sat all reformed GCSE subjects.
  • 97.9% of all GCSE entries were at grade 4 and above with 99.4% of students achieving 5 or more GCSE grades at 4 or above.
  • The percentage of entries achieving grade 9 was 12.4% and grades 7-9 was 52.2%.
  • Progress at the school, as measured by Progress 8 was 0.37, meaning that on average students achieve nearly 2/5 of a grade higher than is expected, compared to their peers nationally.
  • 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 extremely proud of their achievements across the board, 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 37.1% of all students gaining three or more 7 – 9 grades.  Over 50% of the GCSE grades awarded were in the 7 – 9 category.

Several students (not pictured), to name just a few, achieved fantastic results:

  • Cameron McCurdy (9x9’s, 1x8)
  • Peter Taylor (7x9’s, 3x8’s)
  • William Joy (8x9’s, 2x7’s)
  • Rowan Milner, Hugh Parker (7x9’s, 2x8’s, 1x7)

Once again, the school also boasts an excellent set of E-Baccalaureate results, with 65.7% of students attaining grades 9 – 5 in the E-bacc subjects. Whilst 80.3% achieved the same measure at grades 4 and above.

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 anticipated 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 other successful students from local 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.
