Outstanding GCSE results – nearly half the grades are top grades

Posted: 25th August 2022

Pitsford School’s year 11 students for 2022 have secured superb GCSE results of which they deserve to be very proud indeed. Despite a nationwide constriction in results following two years of no examinations, the Pitsford students have outperformed expectation.

Almost 50% of all grades secured are top grades at 7-9 (which in old money is A*-A) which is an astounding achievement. The proportion of top grades across the country at grades 7-9 this year is 26.3% so Pitsford students have nearly doubled the national average. That they have done this in the midst of the immense and generation-defining disruption and trauma of the pandemic and its aftermaths is astounding and demonstrates their resilience and determination, as well as the investment of time, care and attention from their teachers.

Particularly worthy of note is that the class of 2022’s GCSE results have outperformed the school’s Centre Assessed Grades of 2020 (which is an extraordinary achievement). Over a quarter of the year group secured an average of grade of 7 or above, and Alanna S deserves especial praise for her eight 9 grades and two 8 grades. Very well done to her and very well done to everyone.
