A* grades as students achieve another year of outstanding GCSE results

Year 11 students are celebrating as they increased the number of A* results this year by an incredible 36% with an impressive total of 455 A* and A grades awarded.

Congratulations to all our Year 11 students who have performed exceptionally well. The numbers in brief:

  • 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.

Kathy Crewe-Read, Head of Wolverhampton Grammar School said “Congratulations to every one of our Year 11 students. Excellent teaching, hard work and determination really does pay off. The School’s choice of iGCSE subjects has also enabled students and teaching staff to focus on learning and not on the national concerns about GCSE reforms and introduction of a new grading scale.”
