Record-breaking GCSE results

Queen Elizabeth’s School today recorded its best-ever GCSE results.

Announcing the results, the Headmaster, Dr John Marincowitz, said the exceptional performance of the Year 11 boys augurs well for them and for the School as most enter the Sixth Form next month.

“I am delighted with the boys’ remarkable achievements at GCSE,” said Dr Marincowitz. “A record-breaking 89.1% of entries were graded at A* or A, with exceptional performances in subjects like Mathematics, which achieved 160 A*s, 15 As and one B. These GCSEs, along with the School’s unprecedented AS-level results announced last week, reflect a great deal of superb teaching and bode well for the future.”

Results were also particularly strong in Science.

Key statistics among this year’s GCSE results included:

  • 89.1% of all examinations taken were at A* or A (up from 86.1% last year)
  • 98.1% were at A*-B (up from 97.6%)
  • 96% of boys achieved five or more A* and A grades
  • 100% achieved the Government’s preferred benchmark figure of five or more A*-C grades including English, Mathematics and Science.
