Westbourne pupils are celebrating yet another great set of GCSE results today with 85% of Year 11 gaining at least 5 passes at grades 4 and above including Maths & English (A*-C). 73% gained at least 5 passes including Maths & English at the new more challenging grade 5 and above.
The new subject specifications in almost all subjects have not stood in the way of our pupils’ success, with 31% of pupils gaining a 9 (A** or the new elite top grade, more challenging than an A*) grade in at least one subject, and 62% gaining at least one grade 7 (A).
36% of all exams taken by the year group were at grade 7 or better, and 86% were at grade 5 or better.
We are a non-selective school and are immensely proud of all our pupils’ achievements at all grades – they will now move on to Sixth Forms and Higher Education courses across Sheffield and beyond. Six of our most able pupils averaged above a grade 7 (A) across all their subjects – Ailsa Gillespie, Benedict Pereira, James Verney, James Deslandes, John Buckner and Edwin Paul. Special congratulations are due to Edwin who achieved six top grade 9s and averaged above a grade 8 overall.
