In 2017, Queen's College students improved on the previous year’s GCSE results which were, themselves, the best since 2012.
The number of pupils obtaining A*-A grades – including the new numerical grades – rose by four per cent year-on-year from 47 per cent to 51 per cent.
And their performance was particularly strong in the three subjects now graded by number.
The national average for the top mark (nine) in English was 2.2 per cent, for English Literature was 3.2 per cent and... Maths was 3.5 per cent – overall across the subjects, the Queen’s average was more than ten per cent.
Our Head Teacher, Dr Lorraine Earps, said: “Coming on the back of our students’ outstanding A Level achievements, today’s GCSE results are fantastic.
“In a year when the national trend has seen a reduction in pass rates, to achieve such a substantial increase in our top grades is great news.”
