GCSE Students Continue the Upward Trend in Examination Achievements

Anglo students have continued the upward trend in examination achievements despite national changes which have caused a fall in the award of higher grades, particularly in English.

31% of Anglo students have achieved 5 A* or A grades compared to 23% last year.  Despite the national concern over English Language, 71% of our students have gained 5 A*-C grades including Mathematics and English. 

80% have gained at least 5 A*-C grades and 100% have achieved at least 5 A*-G grades including a language, a humanity, a technology and an arts subject.  This broad curriculum is a defining feature of the Anglo and it prepares our students very well for the next stage of their educational journey. It will be no surprise, therefore, that the school has performed very well with the new performance measure, the English Baccalaureate.  41% gained an A*-C in English, Mathematics, Science, a language and Geography or History. 

As you would expect, all our students have achieved a pass in at least one language and 25% have achieved an A* or A in two languages.  There have also been outstanding performances in individual subjects and we are delighted with the progress departments have made.

We recognise and appreciate the significant efforts of our staff, students and parents in this success.

The majority of our Year 11 will now join a number of students from other schools in September to pursue an A level or International Baccalaureate Programme.  With today’s GCSE results we are confident that the outcomes in 2014 for these students will continue to enhance the reputation of our International Sixth Form which has already been judged outstanding by OfSTED.
