Three year high for Sexey’s GCSE results
22nd September 2014

 

Sexey’s School is celebrating an exceptional year of GCSE results, marking the best grades for core subjects attained for the past three years. In a year when nationally, grades in English have significantly dropped, the Sexeians achieved 75% A*-C grades including English and Maths: a 5% increase on 2013, illustrating that the School continues to go from strength to strength in its core subjects.

 

Additionally, these results exceed Sexey’s Fischer Family Trust (FFT) targets – a comprehensive reporting system used by 80% of schools in England and Wales - and suggests that the students have achieved well beyond their potential.

 

 

Head Master of Sexey’s School, Mr. Irfan Latif commented on the recent exam success, “In recent weeks the national media and exam bodies have warned of a predicted fall in grades nationally at GCSE. In this context, our students’ improving grades in core subjects are even more impressive and I have great pleasure in congratulating every one of them on their success. I hope that they are as delighted with their results as their teachers are – it is a testament to all of the hard work and dedication involved in school, in the boarding houses, and at home. I look forward to working with many of them in the next part of their academic journey into our successful Sixth Form.” 

 

 

Deputy Headteacher Mr. Paul Reddick added, "Students and colleagues have worked hard to achieve these excellent GCSE results and I am delighted for all involved. In amongst the headlines, there are numerous individual successes, students who have worked really hard to meet, and often exceed, their targets. Along with the students who achieved a string of the highest grades, many other students succeeded in making superb progress. I am really delighted that 94% of students made expected, or better than expected, progress in English with 91% achieving the same feat in Mathematics. These are both way above the national average. The year group were a delight to work with and the students will go on to do very well at Sixth Form, college, industry and beyond.”
