Pupils Celebrate Exceptional GCSE Results

Oundle pupils have achieved an outstanding set of GCSE and IGCSE results. This year, pupils’ results were recorded in both the new numerical format of 9 to 1, and the old letter scale of A to G: 57% of all grades awarded were 9, 8 or A*, the second highest proportion of top grades for over ten years.

Fifteen pupils achieved a clean sweep of the highest grades available to them, whilst over 40% of the year group recorded the equivalent of all A* and A.

Amongst the reformed qualifications, a very impressive 33% of all results were grade 9, the highest grade, and 62% of results achieved grades 8 or 9.

Performance was strong across all subjects, with Classical Greek, English, Latin and Russian leading the way with over 70% A* grades or equivalent. More than three quarters of all candidates received grades 9 or 8 in English Language and English Literature IGCSEs.

This hard-working year group can now look ahead with confidence to a fulfilling Sixth Form career.
