What the new GCSEs mean (Aug 2017)


Congratulations to the GCSE Class of 2017!

Many congratulations to Kingsdown students who have achieved an encouraging and pleasing set of GCSE outcomes.  Together with their teachers and parents, they successfully weathered the storm of qualification reforms in English and Maths.

There were successes across the board with many standout performances most notably Rebecca Pinnock who achieved 7 A*, 1 A and a grade 9 in English Language and Maths.  Other high achievers included Ruby Nicol, Bradley Hawkins, Codie Church and Matthew Tilling who secured high grades across all their subjects.  

Congratulations to all our class of 2017 whose hard work and efforts have been rewarded.  There was no secret formula for success; just teachers who constantly strove to provide the best possible teaching and pastoral care, families who provided constant support, and, most importantly, focused students who demonstrated real grit and determination in the lead up to their examinations.

Grade 4 and above in English: 68%
Grade 4 and above in Maths: 56%
Grade 4 and above in English and Maths: 50%
