Outstanding GCSE Results

Perseverance and determination get Wyedean students the top grades

 Students celebrated outstanding GCSE results with 33% achieving results at the top grades 7-9 (A** to A grades) and 81% achieving grades 9-4 (A**- C grades). Furthermore, 79% of the pupils gained five or more GCSES grades 9 to 4 (A**-C).

 We are proud of all our students, many having made excellent progress from their KS2 starting points. Superb results were achieved, 88% of students achieved grades 4+ (A*-C) in GCSE English and 82% achieved grades 4+ (A*-C) in Maths.

Students performed well across a range of subjects, showing the variety of talent at Wyedean School and Sixth Form Centre; over 80% achieved grades of 4+ in Art, Biology, Business, Sport, Chemistry, Design Technology, Drama, English Literature and Language, Food and Nutrition, Geography, Maths, Media Studies, Physics, Religious Studies, Spanish and Physical Education.  We have also seen an increase in the number of students who have achieved the English Baccalaureate. These positive results will facilitate great life chances for so many.

 To achieve these incredible results against the backdrop of the pandemic and the challenge of the repeated, new assessments that GCSE pupils faced is a wonderful achievement, we congratulate each and every student at our school.

Within this success there have been many individual performances worthy of special mention. Many students have made outstanding progress since joining Wyedean School and Sixth Form Centre and have achieved the remarkable outcomes listed below:

We wish all students future success as they continue their studies study at Wyedean School and Sixth Form Centre.

 

 

 

 

A-level and BTEC students continue to excel

 We are delighted to report that our wonderful students studying A-level and BTECs have once again weathered the pandemic storm and achieved excellent results.

 47% of students achieved an A* or an A, our best ever outcome. The A*- B figure was 81%, while the A*-C score was 94%. There was a 100% pass rate for both A-level and BTEC.

 Johnathan Lane, Director of Sixth form reported “The year has been challenging for so many reasons but the most significant obstacle for the students to battle through has been uncertainty – not knowing the nature of assessments they’d face or how grades would be generated. This Year 13 cohort has coped amazingly well with adversity and have excelled. They finish this academic year taking with them new reserves of resilience, independence, determination, and now fantastic grades, which will give them a great platform for the future.”

 Due to the pandemic, the standard exams process was not possible in 2021. However, forward planning and the extensive work of teachers and support staff at Wyedean has ensured that grades have been determined in a fair and considered manner. The quality assurance process has been robust and therefore students at Wyedean can be confident that their grades have parity alongside previous cohorts.  

 Notable successes are: Alex Candow: D*D*, Joe Dare: A*A*A, Corentine Dumond: A*A* A*A*A, Niall Hayes: A* A* A*, Adele Launay: A* A* A* A*, Caitlin McCullagh: D* A* A* A*, Finn  McNeil: D*D*AB, Meg Narayan: A*A*B,  Jess Pitt: D*AA, Bethany Rodgers: A* A*D*D and Tom Stenson: A* A*AB.

 Principal, Gwennan Jeremiah said, “I would like to publicly commend our students on their excellent performance at A level and BTEC. They have demonstrated extraordinary resilience and stepped up time and again to ensure that, pandemic or not, they can and will achieve their potential. We could not be prouder of them all.”

 

We're pleased to report that all of our students have gone on to appropriate destinations whether it be employment, apprenticeships, university, or in one case, starting a business! The most popular degree course our students chose to pursue was Art, and we had a whole range of other courses selected, including Midwifery, Law, Engineering, Journalism and Economics. Our students have headed all over the country from Durham to Southampton; Edinburgh to Cambridge. Wherever they go we're always happy to see them again! They've been a fantastic year group and we'll certainly miss them. 

 Alps
