The 145 boys and girls that made up The Perse’s first co-educational Year 11 broke the School’s GCSE records with 90% of entries being graded at either A* or A. This compares to a national average of 21.3%.
There were excellent results in all subjects, but exceptional standards were achieved in Art, Biology, History, Italian, Maths and Music where in each subject over 80% of candidates achieved an A* grade. (In 2013 the national A* percentage was 6.8%).
Three quarters of students achieved 9 or more A* and A grades.
All 88 IGCSEs taken a year early by Year 10 pupils were graded A*.
Head Ed Elliott commented:
“These are exceptional results achieved by our first ever co-ed Year 11. They are the product of much hard work and dedicated study and I congratulate all the boys and girls on their achievements. I also thank the staff for their inspirational teaching and commitment to helping students realise their individual potentials. I congratulate our Year 10s for their clean sweep of A*s, which is an outstanding achievement.”
The percentage of pupils obtaining five A*- C grades including English and Maths was 100%.
The percentage of pupils getting at least five A*-G grades was 100%.
