16 pupils achieved the new grade 9

In the first set of results to include the new, reformed English Language, English Literature and Maths GCSEs, Central Foundation Boys’ School are celebrating another outstanding set of outcomes.

The new English and Maths GCSEs, graded on final exams rather than coursework as well as exams, have been described as the most difficult since the 1980s.  The new GCSEs are graded from 1 to 9, with a new top grade of 9 only being awarded to about 2% of students across the country.  The School is delighted that its students achieved 3 times this number of top grades with 10 students being awarded a grade 9 in English and 9 students a grade 9 in Maths.

The School is very proud of the achievement of all of the students in the new reformed GCSEs.  87% of students achieved a ‘standard pass’ of a grade 4, equivalent to a grade C, or better in both English and Maths. 70% of students achieved a ‘strong pass’ of a grade 5 or better in both English and Maths.

In English Language and Literature, 91% of the students achieved a grade 4 or above with 43% achieving grade 7, 8 or 9.  In Maths, 90% of the students achieved a grade 4 or above with 34% of the whole cohort achieving grade 7, 8 or 9.

There has been outstanding attainment and progress from students of all abilities with 34% of all grades at GCSE awarded as 7, 8, 9, A* or A. Science has continued to perform strongly, with 81% of students achieving at least a C grade, with 40% achieving A* or A. This exceptional student performance continued across the breadth of the curriculum with EBacc subjects performing particularly well including Computing (100% A*-C), French (95%), Spanish (86%), History (88%) and Geography (75%). ICT and Business Studies GCSE results were once again outstanding with A*-C% at 94% and 82% respectively. The creative faculty was well represented with Drama results of 95%.

Among the results, there were many individual success stories including:

Liam Elliott Brady who achieved two 9s, an 8, six A*s and two As.

Louis Jackson who achieved two 9s, an 8, four A*s and two As.

Fernando Rodriguez-Santamaria who achieved a 9, a 7, five A*s, four As.

Our students have made exceptional progress throughout their time at the school and we are particularly delighted at the large number of top grades.”
