GCSE Results 2016

Students at Saint Nicholas School have achieved outstanding results in their GCSEs this year. Overall, there was an 83% pass rate for those recording at least five GCSEs at grade C and above. Almost a third of all examinations were graded A* or A, and over 60% of pupils gained eight or more A*-C grades.

Students achieved highly in English and mathematics with over three-quarters of all students gaining a grade C or above. Art, biology, drama, geography, ICT, Latin, music, physics, psychology and Spanish all recorded 100% pass rates at grade C or above.

Pupils who deserve a particular mention are Emillie Mitchell who was awarded 8 A*and 3 A grades, Emily Camp who gained 7 A* and 4 A grades and Macy Glen who achieved 1 A*, 9 A and 1 B grade.

The headmaster said: “I am delighted with the strength of our results. The approach of the school is to ensure that all students take a broad and balanced academic GCSE curriculum and not “GCSE equivalent” qualifications. As a broadly non-selective entry school we are rightly proud of our pupils’ successes, which are once more a tribute to our dedicated parents, staff and especially our pupils who have a positive attitude to work and are prepared to give all that it takes to be successful.”
