Best ever GCSE results for Worth
Worth students are celebrating after receiving the best results the school has ever achieved since GCSEs were introduced in 1988.
Almost two-thirds of all grades awarded to Worth students were A* - A (or 7, 8 or 9). Well over half of all pupils received six or more A* or A (or 7, 8 or 9) grades.
Forty per cent of all results were given the top grade of A* (or 8 or 9).
Six students received straight A* (or 8 or 9) grades, amassing an incredible 75 between them.
Simon Fisher, Deputy Head (Academic), said: “We are particularly delighted with these results given the level of change to the qualifications pupils sat this year. In the first year for those subjects assessed under the more rigorous 9-1 grading system, for 9 to be the most popular grade (25% of all 9-1 grades) and 8 to be the next most popular (19% of all 9-1 grades) is an excellent achievement.”*
* 8 and 9 are equivalent to an A* under the previous grading system.
