Kingsmead GCSE Results 2017

Posted on Aug 24, 2017

Predictions for GCSEs this year suggested that this was going to be a particularly difficult year for many schools.  Kingsmead School has however confounded those predictions achieving a truly excellent set of results which are in fact the second-best set of results in the school’s history!  68.5% of students achieved five or more GCSE grades previously described as good (i.e. A* to C) including English and Mathematics with 38% achieving the new government benchmark of achieving five ‘strong passes’ including English and Maths.  44% of students achieved the English Baccalaureate.

Headteacher Mark Griffin said, “Once again Kingsmead students have performed extremely well.  Most have met or exceeded their targets and can be very proud of themselves.  This year in particular, students and teachers faced many challenges including huge changes to syllabuses, exam structures, grade boundaries and accountability measures.  Kingsmead teachers and support staff have worked incredibly hard to ensure that the students have not suffered from this turbulence.  I am very grateful for their commitment and professionalism.”
