How to understand the new 9 to 1 GCSE grading system

Many pupils were most keen to find out their English and maths results - the first subjects given the new points system of 9 to 1 this year.

In maths, 70 per cent of 16 year old students in those schools in the borough gained a maths GCSE at grade 4 or above, in line with the national figure of just under 71 per cent.

Chloe said: "I want to go into law or medicine".

"I was most anxious about maths but I got an 8, close to a 9".

In English, the number of students achieving the grade 7+ (formally A* to A grade) is above the national average, as is the percentage passing overall, with 58 per cent of students achieved a pass grade (4+) in both of the new GCSE English and maths examinations.

The number of pupils leaving with five or more passes at A*-C has increased yet again to 94.1 per cent.

She said: "The students here I'm very proud of because they accepted the demands of these two subjects and worked their absolute hardest to make sure they passed".

Headmaster Simon Corns said the results were an improvement on a year ago.

Tallulah Allen's hard work certainly paid off. Tallulah, who had revised non-stop for the past three months, achieved a clean sweep of 11A*s.

"I am particularly pleased with the English results that saw one of our highest ever pass rates including a very strong performance around the highest level 9 award".

Just over half of students picking up their results this morning achieved grade 4 in the core disciplines, the equivalent of a C, which is a nine per cent increase on past year.

He posted a message to his students, thanking them for their messages and encouraging them to thank their teachers. "I can't quite believe it!"

A total of nine students achieved eight A*-A grades or more.

Mrs Beilby said: "I am so proud of Robert - such unbelievable results - thank you to all the staff at Webber Independent School that have supported and encouraged Robert to reach his full potential".

Head girl Elizabeth Williams achieved an awesome two 8's, in maths and English literature, a 7 for English Language 2 A*'s, 4 A's and 2 B's, whilst also carrying out her other duties across the school. "We have made so much progress at Urswick in that time and I am delighted for everybody".
