Year 11 celebrate best ever GCSE results
Year 11 students at Westbourne School have done themselves proud as they returned to “normal” exams this year after over two years of disruption during the pandemic.
91% of all students gained at least 5 subjects at grade 4 or above, including the key subjects of English and Maths. Of all grades gained across the curriculum by all students, a record 36% were at level 8 or 9 (A*), and 78% of all students gained at least one grade 7 (A).
Mr Birbeck, Head of Senior School, said:
“I am immensely proud of the achievements of all our Year 11 students, and I wish them every success as they leave Westbourne to pursue their post-16 studies at Sixth Forms and Colleges across Sheffield and beyond. As a school we delivered high-quality online learning to our students throughout the pandemic, and it is clear from these results that our students have not suffered any long-term learning loss during those challenging years. Nationally, GCSE results this year are lower than the teacher-assessed grades issued in 2020 and 2021, but our students have outshone even those results in 2022.”
