  • KS4 RESULTS DAY

    Published 23/08/18

     

    Staff and students at Uxbridge High School are delighted with this year’s GCSE results.

    It is important to note that this year’s GCSEs are mostly new qualifications and cannot be easily compared to previous years, however we are able to draw some broad comparisons between the old and new grading systems. This year students have been awarded new 9-1 grades in most subjects, with grade 4 considered a pass (roughly equivalent to the old grade C) and grade 5 a strong pass.

    Our students’ English and maths scores are strong as expected. In English,10% of students achieved grades 9-8, 63% achieved 9-5 and 79% achieved 9-4. In maths, 7% of students have achieved grades 9-8, 42% 9-5 and 58% 9-4. Combining both English and maths, 8% of students have achieved grades 9-7, 37% 9-5 and 56% 9-4.

    The sciences have maintained outstanding results with 100% achieving 9-5 in triple science (biology, chemistry and physics) and combined science scoring highly. Four students have achieved grade 9s across all three sciences*.

    A number of our students achieved the top grades in a range of academic subjects (EBacc) and across the wider curriculum, we are delighted that our performing arts, art, music and sports students were rewarded with high percentages of top 9-5 grades.

    Congratulations to our top performing students who include:

    Munraj Bhangra who has achieved 10 9-5 grades, including 8 8/9 grades*.

    Arshiya Inayat who has achieved 10 9-5 grades, including 8 8/9 grades*.

    Kingsley De Costa who has achieved 10 9-5 grades, including 6 8/9 grades*.

    Aaron said “I’m so pleased with my results! I am enrolling for sixth form to study maths, physics and product design.”

    Dominic said “All my hard work has paid off and I’m over the moon to get a 9 in drama!”

    Students collecting their results today were keen to sign up to our sixth form and are looking forward to re-joining school in September. You may have seen many of them on BBC Breakfast television this morning, discussing their achievement with Naga, Jayne and Tim.

    Mr Clemens, Principal said “This has been a challenging year for staff and students in working towards new examination courses and gradings. The results are testament to the hard work and dedication of all. I am delighted that our students have achieved so well in the new more demanding courses. They are well prepared for the next phase of their education in our sixth form.”
