In the first set of results to include the new, reformed GCSEs in the majority of subjects, Central Foundation Boys’ School students are celebrating some excellent outcomes.

The new GCSEs are graded from 1 to 9, with a new top grade of 9 only being awarded to about 2 – 3% of students across the country. At Central Foundation Boys’ School, 7% of all grades awarded to its students were at grade 9.

A grade 7 is set at the standard of an A grade in the old GCSEs. The School has achieved its highest ever percentage of top grades, with 34% of all grades awarded being at 7, 8 or 9. 86% of all grades were at grade 4 or better, which is equivalent to a C grade.

In Maths, 88% of the students achieved a grade 4 or above with 34% achieving grade 7, 8 or 9. 82% of students achieved a grade 4 – 9 in both English and Maths. In the Sciences, 86% of all grades were at a grade 4 or above and 40% of all grades in Sciences were at grade 7, 8 or 9.

This very good student performance continued across the breadth of the curriculum with EBacc subjects performing particularly well, including Computing (97% at 4-9, with 49% at grade 8 or 9), French (96% at grade 4 -9), Spanish (100% at grade 4 -9) and Geography (84% at grade 4 -9). ICT results were once again outstanding with grades 4-9 at 89%. The creative faculty was well represented with Art (94% at grades 4-9) and Music (88% at grades 4-9) both scoring highly.

Headteacher Jamie Brownhill said, “It has been challenging for students and teachers to take on these new GCSEs. They are all to be congratulated for their hard work that has resulted in them achieving some very good results. The students now head on to the next stage of their education and whether they are joining us in our sixth form, or going on to pastures new, we wish them all the very best with the next stage of their lives.”
