Examination Performance 2013
We are delighted with our students’ performance in their examinations this year. Not only did the grades awarded reflect the students’ hard work and that of their teachers, but there were significant increases on our 2012 results.
In terms of A Level, 51% of all grades were A*-B (up from 37% in 2012); 73% of all grades were A*-C (up from 60% in 2012). These grades, which were achieved in a full range of subjects, will enable our students to pursue their future aspirations fully, whether that be at university or in the world of work.
Our GCSE results were also extremely pleasing: 59% of students achieved the benchmark 5A*-C including English and Maths (up from 48% in 2012). 38% of students achieved the EBacc, which means that they achieved an A*-C in English, Maths, two Sciences, a Humanity and a Language (this percentage is well above the national average and up from 27% in 2012). Moreover, 19% of all grades were awarded A or A*, which is fantastic!
But Southborough is a fully inclusive school, which caters for a full range of attainment, not only the high fliers: 99% of our students achieved 5A*-G and 100% achieved 1A*-G. These percentages represent a significant achievement for our students and their teachers.
Our students have proved that, with the right teaching and support, they can all achieve: we are very proud of them and look forward to sustaining their success in 2014.
