Examination Results 2016
Many congratulations to our Year 13 pupils who have received the results of their A level examinations.
Across the board, pupils achieved a perfect pass rate of A*-E grades, with 77 per cent of students registering A*-C.
A fifth of exam entries were graded A* or A and more than 10% of pupils achieved AAB results or higher.
Deputy Headteacher Mr Spandl said “The excellent results are a testament to their hard work and the dedication of their teachers over the last seven years, in many cases.”
We are immensely proud of all of our students. We wish them every success and happiness as they move on to the next stages of their lives.
We are extremely proud of our pupils’ outstanding achievements this year. They worked incredibly hard, together with the tireless support of their teachers and support staff, to secure excellent results in all subjects in defiance of more rigorous examinations and higher pass marks required to achieve the top grades.
Provisionally, 66% of our pupils have achieved grades A*-C in English and Maths, which is the government’s new headline measure. The proportion achieving the long-standing headline measure of 5 GCSEs at grades A* to C, including English and Maths, is also 66%. 36% have achieved the English Baccalaureate, whilst our Attainment 8 score – which calculates the average grade achieved by pupils in their best 8 subjects, including English and Maths – is 5.3, equivalent to a C+. Furthermore, the proportion of entries graded A* to A has increased to 27%, and the proportion graded A* to C has risen to just over 80% for the first time. A number of pupils performed exceptionally well: 6 attained straight A*/A grades and a further 31 obtained straight A*-B grades.
Together, these results represent the best set of GCSE outcomes in the school’s long history and will be significantly above the national average.
The performance of our pupils at GCSE, in addition to the record A level results announced last week, mean that 2016 has been yet another year of outstanding achievement by pupils at Robert Clack School. For that we must recognise not only their efforts, but also the remarkable commitment of our superb staff and the support of parents and Governors.
