Top Grade Success for Wolverhampton Grammar School

Pupils from the national award winning School – judged “Excellent” in all areas by school Inspectors – are celebrating another year of top GCSE and A Level results.

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

GCSE and iGCSEs

  • 87 students studied towards an incredible 824 GCSE and iGCSE awards
  • 529 Grade 9, 8 or 7 awards (equivalent to A* – A)
  • 169 coveted Grade 9s awarded
  • 99.3% achieved equivalent A* – C grades
  • Nearly half of all students achieved nothing but the top grades in 9 or more subjects

A Level and Cambridge Technical awards

  • 200 A Levels and Cambridge Technical awards
  • 100% pass rate and a full house of Cambridge Technical Distinction grades awarded to Sixth Form students studying IT and PE
  • 111 coveted A* and A grades awarded
  • 95% achieved equivalent A* – C grades

Sixth Form students from Wolverhampton Grammar School have achieved the highest number of A*- A grades for over 10 years, with 56% of entries receiving the top two grades.

Students from the national award winning school have, despite an unprecedented final few months, achieved impressive results securing places at the very best universities on highly competitive courses.

Students secured an impressive 100% success rate in the vast range of subjects ranging from Art, Biology, Further Maths, French, English Literature, Economics, German to Business Studies, Design & Technology, Geography, Chemistry, Physics, English Language, Business Studies, Economics, Government & Politics, History, Music, Psychology, Religious Studies to Theatre Studies.

Reflecting on the extraordinary arrangements put in place for grading this year, Alex Frazer, incoming Head of Wolverhampton Grammar School added “We have a fantastically bright cohort in the Upper Sixth and Year 11 this year and if they had had the chance to sit exams, we expected stellar results. In common with many schools and colleges, we made our views on the Ofqual process known to the Secretary of State for Education. I’m delighted that the Government did the right thing and awarded students across the country the grades that they deserve.

In what has been an extraordinary year, we believe it is every school’s duty to support their students to attain the grades that their teachers know they are capable of. The move to Centre Assessment Grades has given all schools the opportunity to do just that. 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 recently 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 and the Extended Project Qualification (EPQ). Students studying Information Technology (IT) and PE achieved a full house of Distinction grades.

Places are still available for Sixth Form in September. If you are a Year 11 student and would like to consider joining our Sixth Form, contact the Admissions Registrar, Mrs Jane Morris telephone: 01902 422939 or email: jam@wgs-sch.net as soon as possible.
