2017 – 2018 Best ever GCSE results at Robert Clack School!
Pupils at Robert Clack are today celebrating the best ever GCSE results in the school’s history. We are absolutely thrilled that the hard work and commitment of our pupils, together with the professionalism and dedication of our teachers and support staff, has been so richly rewarded. Despite the government’s agenda to implement exceptionally challenging new curricula in all subjects, the significant demands of high-stakes final examinations and the retreat from coursework assessment, almost three quarters of entries were graded 9 to 4 (equivalent to A* to C), whilst 7 in 10 pupils have achieved the national standard in English and Maths.
A number of pupils performed exceptionally well: 8 achieved straight 9 to 7 (or A* to A) grades, and 15% achieved straight 9 to 6 (or A* to B) grades. The new, coveted grade 9, which is only awarded to the top 2% of pupils nationally, was attained by 32 pupils across a range of subjects, with 20 achieving the grade in English or Maths. Furthermore, there were some excellent achievements from pupils who have faced considerable personal challenges during their GCSE years.
As always, I am exceptionally proud of our pupils and staff. Our shared values of mutual respect, compassion for others, discipline, hard work and high aspirations continue to sustain our cohesive community, and have ensured that our pupils in Year 11 have fulfilled their potential this summer. We look forward to welcoming them all back into our highly successful Sixth Form in September.

More importantly we are delighted that these results are passports to their future prosperity and successes as they take up first class University places and apprenticeship opportunities in September. Success at Sixth Form requires determination, resilience and perseverance from the pupils. These attributes combined with excellent teaching and parental support are what has led to our pupils achieving yet another set of first class results. These young men and women have once again shown that pupils from Robert Clack, proudly a local authority school, are as good as any other pupils in the country. Well done to everyone involved!"
