Excellent Year 11 IGCSE Exam Results 2014

Another excellent year!

With all results now in, after one or two re-marks and challenges, time to reflect on the achievements of Year 11 in their Summer 2014 IGCSE exams. For a number of years now our performances in these important tests have been well above world and UK averages. However, even with the bar set high, we are not content to judge and compare ourselves purely by these standards; rather we are always looking to improve on our school’s previous year-on-year results when we set our targets. Only then can we feel we have been successful in our aim of helping our learners to be ‘the best that they can be.’

So how have we done? Below are the main headlines from this year’s IGCSE exam series:

  • 37 students sat an average of 8 to 9 exam subjects (some sat 11 subjects)
  • 32% achieved 8 or more A* or A grades (the top 2 grades available)
  • 78% achieved 8 or more A*-C  grades (considered ‘passing’ grades)
  • 62% achieved 5 or more A* or A grades
  • 92% achieved 5 or more A*-C grades
  • 57% of all exam papers sat received A* or A grades
  • 90% of all exam papers sat received A*-C  grades

We are, therefore, extremely proud of our exam takers, who in all cases rose to the challenges they faced and in many cases exceeded their predictions through hard work and perseverance. Of course, none of this would have been possible without the support of parents – their role in providing the right kind of conditions at home for learning to take place cannot be overstated.

And last, but by no means least, the teachers. Not only did they prepare their students with the subject knowledge, skills and attributes needed to be successful, but their dedication extended to providing support for those at risk of not performing to their potential. This came in the form of intervention strategies, often during free time before, during and after school – and even weekends.

Congratulations to all on a job very well done. The attitudes which brought about these successes will serve our students well as they head towards even more important exams for university entrance, and for the world of work even further down the line. Of course, as we prepare our current Year 11s for next year’s IGCSE exams we will be asking ourselves not only if we can repeat these successes, but if we can exceed expectations as well. A strong student-parent-teacher partnership and a ‘can-do’ approach are the keys to success. We look forward to celebrating and reporting on further achievements next year.
