Congratulations to all our Year 11 students who have performed exceptionally well. The numbers in brief:
Kathy Crewe-Read, Head of Wolverhampton Grammar School said “To achieve the top grade of A* takes a combination of excellent teaching, hard work and determination. Happy students do well and for so many of our students to achieve an A*, A or truly exceptional 9 is a credit to their brilliant teachers and the extraordinary pastoral support in place at School.”
Recent, exam reforms have made exams harder for those students who particularly benefit from a more coursework or modular approach to subjects – Wolverhampton Grammar School recognised this challenge and have put in place additional measures to ensure all students have the opportunity to achieve their best.
+A range of subjects are now graded using a numerical format as opposed to letters.
However, Grade 9 is not the same as the old A* grade. It’s a new grade designed to recognise the very best performance. Nationally, it is predicted that there will be fewer grade 9s awarded than A*s in the old GCSEs – Wolverhampton Grammar School students have out-performed those predictions with an impressive 77 9 grades and 149 A* grades awarded this year.
History, Italian, Biology, Chemistry, French, Physics, Religious Studies, Art, Design & Technology and German are still graded using letters for this year.
