Abbs Cross is celebrating its best ever GCSE results; we are incredibly proud of our students’ achievements.
This year we have seen a further increase in the number of students achieving 8 and 9 grades with 27% of all grades being 9 – 7.
Results in core subjects were particularly strong with over 73% of students attaining a grade 4 or above in English and maths.
Some of the individual student performances are staggering in terms of the number of optimum grades attained. 11% of our students gained grades 7-9 in all subjects – a phenomenal achievement. Whilst acknowledging the enormous achievements of the most able is very important, what gives us the greatest pleasure is the consistent progress that many of our students make irrespective of their ability, personal circumstances or starting point.
We have fantastic dedication from the students and unwavering belief from staff, which is the perfect recipe for success. You just cannot beat excellent teaching and exam preparation combined with terrific effort from our students. The fabulous support of our students from parents throughout Year 10 and 11, and especially over the last few months of their schooling, is also very much appreciated. It is not an easy time to live with a teenager; the support that has been shown through attendance at revision events and in ensuring that children have the right working environment at home has enabled our students to flourish and subsequently celebrate these wonderful results.
