Queen Elizabeth’s Grammar School was delighted to see 23.2% of pupils gaining at least five 9 – 7 grades in their GCSEs. This is an excellent achievement considering the increased difficulty of the new GCSE subjects.
It was especially pleasing to see the English and Mathematics results. 87% of pupils passed English at a grade 4 and above, 90% of pupils passed Mathematics at a grade 4 and above, and 83% of pupils passed both English and Mathematics at a grade 4 and above. At grade 5 and above, 73% achieved this measure in English, 71% in Mathematics and 62% in both English and Mathematics.
Particularly pleasing were the results in Biology, Chemistry, German, History, Latin, Physical Education, Physics, Combined Science and Ethics and Philosophy who all achieved 85% and above in the grade 9-4 measure.
We are thrilled for our pupils, that their hard work, commitment and long hours of revision have paid off and that they have been rewarded with excellent results. We are delighted that many of our pupils will be returning to QEGS for their Sixth Form education and we look forward to welcoming and enrolling many external students over the next two days.
These fantastic results only enhance what our pupils have achieved so far in school, which they will take forward into the Sixth Form and further. We wish all of our pupils much success in the next stage of their education.
