Oundle School is delighted to celebrate pupils’ outstanding success in GCSE and IGCSE examinations this year. For the second year running there has been a rise in the proportion of top grades. Across the curriculum, subjects have been assessed using the new 9 to 1 system, with 59% of all grades awarded 9 or 8; 30% of all grades were awarded 9 (the equivalent to a top A*), a greater number than in any other band.

Seven pupils achieved a clean sweep of 9s, and 71 pupils (nearly 40% of the year group) received grades 9 to 7, the equivalent of A*/A.

English, Classical Greek and Religious Studies provided the headline results with over 70% of grades awarded 9 or 8. Over half of the English Language candidates secured grade 9, building upon the department’s superb performance in 2018. Overall, strong results were well distributed across the twenty-five subjects that constitute Oundle’s broad offering at GCSE/ICGSE.
