GCSE Exam Results 2017 - 24/08/2017

Stockport School celebrates record GCSE results!

In a year of significant educational change with the introduction of new tougher GCSE’s in English and mathematics that has seen a national drop in GCSE pass rates, we are delighted to have bucked the trend by improving upon our record results from last year.

71% of all GCSE grades were awarded at a Grade C (4) or above, with almost 50% of all grades awarded at a Grade B (5) or above. Notably, almost half of all our students (double the national average) achieved the highly academic English Baccalaureate.

There was great success in key subjects such as English where a record 84% of all students achieved the new tougher reformed GCSE pass level, as well as in mathematics where 68% of all students achieved the new tougher pass. In addition, over two thirds of our students also achieved the key combined ‘Basics’ qualifications of English and Mathematics at the new tougher GCSE Grade 4 level.

Individually, students achieved incredibly well, with many individual personal success stories.

As a school we are delighted that we continue achieve beyond national expectations in terms of progress and outcomes. Our results are once again a great recognition of the terrific dedication and commitment to learning that our staff and students apply, and we are particularly delighted with the significant value added success that has been achieved again this year.

We would like to congratulate all of our students, staff and parents upon the 2017 results.
