There were plenty of smiles in St Richard’s Catholic College on Thursday as pupils received their GCSE results. Following on from last week’s success in the AS results, it was wonderful to see that the Year 11 cohort were equally successful in the quality of GCSE grades achieved which exceeded last year’s outstanding results.
Headline figures this year include: 82.5% five or more A*-C grades including English/Maths (based on the new DfE measures); 87% five or more A*-C grades across all subjects; 75% five or more A*-C grades including English/Maths (based on last year’s measures); a progress 8 score of 0.52; an attainment 8 score of 5.89 which equates to pupils achieving an average grade of B and our Ebacc results were 55% A*-C grades.
These results represent fantastic progress for the year group concerned who worked very hard, as well as participating enthusiastically in all areas of school life. The pupils are now in a strong position to do really well in their level three qualifications.
Our Year 10 pupils performed highly in their Core Science GCSE; Year 9 Astronomers did well in their GCSE and our express Year 10 RE group achieved fantastic GCSE results.
Miss Cronin stated “The Staff and I are really proud of all the pupils and their individual achievements. They are lovely young men and women who will go on to make great successes of their lives. We wish them well. I would like to publicly thank all the staff for their hard work and determination in ensuring the best outcomes for all pupils and the parents/carers for their unwavering support. Congratulations to everyone and good luck for the future”.
