Record GCSE results at Priestlands School Lymington - let's celebrate!

 

 

 

There was much to celebrate at Priestlands School yesterday as students received their GCSE results. There were record results in English and Maths, English Literature, Business Studies and ICT. Over a quarter of all grades (27.5%) were at A* and A -- a new school record.

 

Over half the year group secured at least one A* or A grade, with 75 students (30%) securing 3+ A*/A grades and 26 students (10%) securing 8+ grades at A*/A. 62 students (26%) achieved the English Baccalaureate, and this figure is expected to increase when some late results come in. All 239 students (100%) secured at least one qualification.

 

New record with 75% A*-C grades 75% success in A* - C grades including English and Maths - a brand new record

180 students (75%) secured 5 or more grades at A*-C, including English and Maths. This is a new school record. 

New school records in English and Maths too

92% of students secured A*-C grades in English and 84% in Maths. These are new school records.

 

New performance measures reflect excellent results

In terms of the government’s new performance measures which apply to all schools in 2016: 80% of students secured A*-C grades in English and Maths. The new “Progress 8” figure shows that, on average, students at Priestlands performed half a grade better than might have been expected.


Headteacher, Chris Willsher, said: “This is a superb set of results for our students. They have exceeded our targets and then some! Priestlands continues to be a successful school, rooted in its community and serving the community well. Education at Priestlands is about more than exam results. We know that their success today means our students have been given greater choice about what to do next. I congratulate them and wish them well in the future.”
