  • UHS GCSE RESULTS 2019

    Published 22/08/19

     

    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:

    On Monday 11th March, thirteen GCSE German students travelled to London to take part in a revision conference. Students had the opportunity to ask questions to an examiner and gain some tips and tricks to help prepare them for their forthcoming German exams.

    Their listening and pronunciation skills were put to the test as they joined in with some German tongue twisters, including the challenging "Sascha schickt sich selbst schicke Schuhe vom Schuhgeschäft im Schwarzwald". They also practiced some of the core skills, such as being able to describe a photo and translating from German into English.
