    • 80% of all results across all subjects were 9-5 (strong pass)

    For subjects where there were 30 students or more in a particular subject the following 9-4 percentages were achieved:

    I am delighted with these outstanding results. They are well-deserved by an extremely hard-working set of students, and they were exceptionally well-supported by the excellent teaching staff. I am especially pleased to see a total of 126 grade 9s achieved by students at CSG, the very highest grade in the new specifications.

    • Percentage A* - C                    93% (National 75.8%)

    In addition, we are delighted with the following statistics for students at the end of KS5

    • Students with 3/3+ A* - B                                                       128 (65.6%)    

    We are absolutely thrilled that 16 students have gained places at Cambridge or Oxford and 10 have places at medical school.

    Exceptional grades achieved in the sixth form’s most popular subjects, English, mathematics, history and the sciences

    Very strong performance across ‘facilitating subjects’

    With 83 students, English Literature is the school’s most popular subject, and we’re thrilled to see 93% achieving A* - B grades here.  

    Mathematics is the second most popular, with 73 students taking it through to A level, and gaining stunning results with 64% at A*-B grades.

    A number of students took further mathematics (11) and 91% achieved A*-B grades.

    The subject with the third highest number of entries (72) is History, and we’re delighted that 88% scored A*-B grades here.   

    There was also strong performance across the three sciences (biology, chemistry, physics) with 68 students taking one or more science A level and achieving 72% A*-B grades.

    Students have come away with very high grades in geography (91% A*-B), Spanish (79% A*-B) and French (91% A*- B). The subjects mentioned above are all ‘facilitating subjects’, and are highly prized for university entry.

    Also performing exceptionally well are art, with 79% achieving A*-B grades, government and politics at 88% A* - B grades, drama at 88% A*-B grades and photography 90% A* - B grades.

    Extended Project Qualification (EPQ)

    Our students performed exceptionally well in the EPQ.  Twenty-nine took the qualification and their results are as follows:

    • A*        45%
    • A*-A    72%
    • A*-B    97%

    These are exceptionally strong results, reflecting extremely hard work by students and teachers, and consistent support from parents. Our students are ambitious and determined to achieve to the best of their ability, and these grades demonstrate that their effort and dedication over challenging two year courses have been worthwhile.

    Congratulations to all!
