Today the School announces its GCSE results, which once again reinforce the School’s reputation for consistently high achievement. 58% of GCSEs taken at the School were awarded A* or 9 – 8 grades: this is the second highest total in the School’s history, almost matching the 59% achieved in 2015. 82% of GCSEs taken this year were awarded A*- A or 9 – 7 grades and 95% were awarded A*-B or 9 – 6 grades.
Twenty students achieved at least 10 A*/9/8 grades, including:
Over half the year group (53%) gained at least 6 A*/9/8 grades; 45% gained at least 7 A*/9/8s; 38% gained at least 8 A*/9/8s; and 27% gained at least 9 A*/9/8s.
Jonathan Gillespie, Headmaster of St Albans School, commented: “I am delighted with this year’s excellent GCSE results and congratulate our pupils on their individual successes. Their strong results will provide a firm foundation for their progress to A Level and beyond, and I look forward to welcoming them back in September together with the many new entrants who are joining our Sixth Form.”
