Quite simply, it has been a delight to celebrate the successes of Studley High School pupils’ GCSE results this year. The class of 2017 have achieved the best results in the school’s history, even when set against the backdrop of educational reform.
The overall results are fantastic with almost 90% of pupils achieving a pass in English and over 80% achieving a pass in Maths. These are excellent results meaning that 78% of pupils achieved a pass in both English and Maths. Perhaps the most telling figures are those demonstrating that across all faculties GCSE A*- C grades have improved further or remained strong.
In the arts subjects with Art, Photography, Music and Drama, pupils averaged 90% A*- C. In Science where over 50% of the cohort sat Triple Science GCSEs, we have Biology on 100% A*- C and Chemistry and Physics with 99% and 96% A*- C respectively. The record results continue in Humanities with almost 85% of pupils achieving A*- C in Religious Studies (with almost 150 entries!), 75% A*- C in Geography and in History where 25% of pupils achieved A and A* grades and performed above national results. In the Technology and IT subjects, pupils have performed very strongly with 100% A*- C grades in Food Technology and also in Catering and the majority of pupils achieving A*- C in Resistant Materials. Business Studies pupils celebrate almost 85% A*- C. In languages the 100% A*- C continue in German and French results are over 70% A*- C. Pupils have also performed well in PE where almost 80% achieved A*- C. It is such a pleasure to see the strength of performance across a broad curriculum. This can be seen in the fact that 24% of all grades were A or A* and over 50 pupils achieved at least 3 A/A* grades.
In terms of individual successes we have some very high attainers: Eleanor Sutton Smith in achieving 5A* and 5As, Michael Parry for achieving Grade 9 in Maths, 4A*, 3As and 2Bs, Madeline Ritchie for achieving Grade 9 in Maths, 3A*, 5As and a B, Chloe Burborough for achieving a Grade 9 in English, 3A*s, 4As and 2 Bs; Rosalie Oakes for achieving a Distinction in Music, 2A*, 6As and a B, Rachel Herbert for achieving 3A*, 5As and 2Bs, Olivia Rambini for achieving 2A*, 7As and a B, Emily Saunders for achieving 1A* and 9As, but to name a few.
In terms of progress made since year 7 so many of our pupils have also performed superbly. Our key figures indicate high attainment and very good progress. We work incredibly hard to ensure our pupils are supported pastorally and academically and our pupils have worked hard and deserve to do brilliantly.
We wish them all the best of luck for the next chapter of their lives.
