Bishops Castle Community College maintains improvement in GCSE grades
BISHOPS Castle Community College has maintained the improvement in grades achieved last year.
At GCSE the school had 57 per cent of students achieving five A*to C including English and Maths.
There has been another huge improvement in the number of students achieving the government’s new measure of academic prowess, the English Baccalaureate, which has increased by another 12 per cent this year to 46 per cent overall.
Maths, English Language and English Literature GCSE results all saw significant improvements this year in terms of progress and attainment and the number of students now achieving five A*to G overall at the college stands at 98 per cent.
Other GCSE subjects that performed particularly well were French, chemistry, biology, history, geography, music, ICT and PE.
At A Level the results were even better and were the best results of the last four years with 76 per cent of students achieving an A*to C grade.
“I am delighted with the improvements we have seen and it’s a real testament to all the hard work students and staff at the school have put in,” said head teacher Alan Doust.
“What is particularly good to see is young people of all abilities achieving well, particularly those who have needed additional support over the years.”
Jordan Grimes was the top student at the college, with 10 A* and 1 A grade, and Amy Hicks was the top girl with six A* and three A grades.
In total more than 10 per cent of the students achieved eight or more A* or A grades.
