Reflecting on the extraordinary arrangements put in place for grading again this year, Alex Frazer, Head of Wolverhampton Grammar School commented “Through a hugely difficult period in their education they have kept their spirits up incredibly well and have worked exceptionally hard – I take my hat off to them. Teacher assessment has enabled those who know our students best – their teachers – to observe student performance and asses their ability using written and practical assessments, mock exams and coursework.  Today’s results are testament to everyone’s hard work and dedication through what has been a difficult 18 months and I am incredibly proud of our student and staff community at Wolverhampton Grammar School.”

Wolverhampton Grammar School always has an expert team in place over the coming weeks for students and their families to talk through subject results and post results services. Just one of the reasons this national award-winning school was judged “Excellent” in all areas following an inspection by the Independent Schools Inspectorate.

Sixth Form students have the opportunity to study at least three subjects at Sixth Form, with some choosing to go the extra mile with a fourth subject. As well as A Levels, students at the School achieved outstanding success in Cambridge Technical qualifications. BTEC and the Extended Project Qualification (EPQ).

  • 641 Grade 9, 8 or 7 awards (equivalent to A* and A) – 79% of all grades
  • 261 coveted Grade 9s awarded – 31% of all grades

Alex Frazer, Head of Wolverhampton Grammar School said “I have been so impressed by the resolve and hard work of all our Year 11 students. Their results are testament to their individual determination, supported and enabled by what works best in education: expert teaching and top quality pastoral care, smaller class sizes, a longer school day and the confidence gained through participation in extra-curricular activities.”

For those students who were awarded nothing but exceptional grade 9s, their success is truly outstanding given the challenging 18 months they’ve had.

  • GCSE and iGCSE Results

    GCSEs 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.
