GCSE Examination Results

The Polesworth School is celebrating another superb year of success for our year 11 students.

Our students have demonstrated resilience, tenacity and determination in a period of significant national turbulence. Despite this our students and staff have risen to the challenge, exceeding last year’s very strong performance.

Maura Favell, Headteacher, stated that, ‘These results are a testament to the diligence, commitment and high quality educational experience our students have on a daily basis. I want to congratulate all students and staff for their relentless pursuit of excellence and I wish every one of our year 11 students every success for the future. Most students are now going on to further study with the majority studying A levels in our sixth form”.

Students achieved 69% grade 4 in both English and maths with 80% achieving a grade 4 in English and 77% achieving a grade 4 in maths. A grade 4 is a standard pass. 46% achieved a grade 5 in both English and maths with 65% achieving a grade 5 in English and 53% achieving a grade 5 in maths. A grade 5 is a strong pass. We now await the publication of national progress data and we are extremely proud of our students and staff.

Philip Hamilton, CEO of the Community Academies Trust said; “I am proud of the continued high level of achievement at The Polesworth School. Students with the support of their families, the staff and governors should be congratulated on another great year.”
