GCSE Results

slider_Ind_GCSE_RESULTSGCSEs play an increasingly important role in enabling both universities and employers to assess an applicant’s academic ability and potential.

GCSEs act as a useful benchmark for universities in particular, for example, a university degree course offering a year abroad option would usually require a language at GCSE.

Our 2017 Year 11 students performed exceptionally well. The numbers in brief:

  • The number of A* results by an incredible 36% with an impressive total of 455 A* and A grades awarded
  • 80 students studied towards an impressive 772 GCSE and iGCSE paper
  • 230 A*s and 225 A grades awarded
  • An average of 10 GCSE subjects per student
  • Almost 60% all grades awarded were A* or A
  • 23 students achieved 9 or more passes at A* or A
  • 100% of students gained a C or above in 5 or more subjects

80 pupils from the School – recently judged “Excellent” in all areas following an inspection by the Independent Schools Inspectorate – studied towards an incredible 772 GCSE/iGCSE.  An impressive 455 A* or A grades were awarded to Wolverhampton Grammar School students – that’s over a quarter of all students who will be celebrating 9 or more passes at A*- A.
