    Students and staff at Uxbridge High School are delighted with this year’s GCSE results.

    GCSE examinations across the board now have been revised and all now use the grading system of 9- 1, where 9 is the highest grade achievable. Grade 4 is considered to be a ‘standard pass’ and Grade 5, a ‘strong pass’

    Our students’ English and maths scores are high as expected. In English, 60% of students achieved grades 9-5 and 72% achieved 9-4. In maths, 44% achieved 9-5 and 67% achieved 9-4. Combining both English and maths, 40% achieved 9-5 and 61% achieved 9-4. 10% of our students achieved the highest grades of 8 or 9 in English and/or maths.

    The sciences have maintained outstanding results with 98% achieving 9-5 in triple science (biology, chemistry and physics) and combined science scoring highly. We are delighted to have exceeded national averages in English, maths and sciences and in a number of measures.

    A number of our students also 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.

    Particular congratulations to Patrik Limani, who achieved an incredible 9 grade 9s and Holly Parrish who achieved 8 grade 9s and 1 grade 8. Both of these students will be recognised as in the top 1000 performers in the country. Other high performers include:
