2017 GCSE Results

Another year of strong achievement for Bishop Rawstorne students

We would like to offer our heartfelt congratulations to the Year 11 GCSE cohort for the excellent results that they have achieved in this year's GCSE examinations.  There have been many outstanding performances and much to be pleased about in what has been a very successful set of GCSE results. Across the whole year group so many students have achieved grades that reflect so well the effort that has been put in over the previous five years. None of this can happen in isolation and our immense thanks go to the teaching staff, support staff and the Governing body for the unwavering, unstinting commitment that they have shown in driving forward the progression and attainment of our students. 
 
In the first year of the new 9 to 1 GCSE for English and Mathematics, 64% of students achieved a strong pass in both subjects (9-5 grade) and 86.7% achieved a standard pass in both subjects (9-4 grade).

This year 85% of students achieved 5 or more A*-C/9 to 4 grades including English and Maths, measuring 4 as a standard pass. Our E-Bacc figure for this year is 50.6%, measuring students who have achieved strong passes, and 54%, measuring students who have achieved standard passes. We are delighted with these results and the E-Bacc measurement of 54% equals the highest figure we have ever achieved. In addition we have seen a significant increase in students achieving A*/A grades across a range of subject areas over our results in 2016. In English Language and Maths, using the new 1-9 measurements, 20.3% and 15.2% respectively of our students achieved the highest grades of 8 and 9. Set against variable national trends, we can be pleased with these figures that reflect strong progress and achievement across the ability range. In due course we will publish the Progress 8 figures once they are available.  As always we will be working tirelessly to enhance outcomes for 2018.  All of these are challenging national data measurement figures and thoroughly justify our ongoing commitment to providing our students with a predominantly academic pathway.  

Special mention should be given to 21 of our students who achieved 5 A* or 8/9 grades or better, a very pleasing number and a truly exceptional achievement that reflects the unstinting endeavour of these students.  

Additionally, our thanks go to the parents who have supported us over the last five years in shaping the academic and spiritual lives of this cohort to whom we give our very best wishes for the future.

As this outstanding group of students moves on to the next challenge, they do so having fully maximised their opportunities and potential here at Bishop Rawstorne. We wish them all well.
