Exam Results

Latest results

For A level results, please see our sixth form results pages.

Our pupils excel at GCSE and in recent years more than 90% of entries have been graded at A* or A. This is a significant achievement as we require all pupils to study three separate sciences rather than the less demanding dual award option, and pupils sit IGCSE maths a year early. In 2015 The Perse was the top-placing co-ed school in both The Times and The Telegraph GCSE league tables

In 2016:

  • 77% of entries were graded A* (up from 72% in 2015).
  • 94% of entries were graded A* or A.
  • 66% of students achieved eight or more A* grades.
  • A third of students achieved a clean sweep of the top grade in all their GCSE/IGCSE subjects.
  • 99% of entries were graded A*- B.

League tables and bare exam results do not do full justice to a Perse education. They measure absolute performance rather than relative pupil progress and many of our greatest pupil success stories involve students who have overcome significant problems and self doubt to turn Ds into B grades.
