Gresham’s is once again celebrating a fantastic set of GCSE results
8 September 2023
Gresham’s is once again celebrating as another set of fantastic results have been achieved by our pupils this summer, this time for our Year 11’s. Results show significant improvement on 2019 results in all metrics, from top grades to pass rate, despite the media reporting that results would return to those levels. In fact, the pass rate is higher than that of 2022, when grading was more generous, and A*-B/9-6 grades are up to the highest level in recent memory, excepting the years of alternative grading systems. Almost 50% of GCSE exams were graded at A*, A, 9, 8 or 7.
Our highest achieving pupils have excelled: one has achieved the extraordinary distinction of all 9’s and 16 pupils have an average of 8 and above, while we have also received an email from the OCR exam board informing us that one of our GCSE Art & Design: Three-Dimensional Design pupils has been awarded a certificate as one of the highest performers in the world this year, as the Dyson Building continues to provide our pupils access to the facilities necessary to achieve these exceptional outcomes.
We are particularly thrilled to share the news that 75 pupils have at least one grade 9 or 8 this year, showing that Greshamians are being recognised for their individual talents, achieving excellent results across the full breadth of subjects on offer – and there were an impressive 41 subject options reporting results this year!
