Once again, students at Derby High School are celebrating today after achieving an excellent set of GCSE results with 100% overall pass rate and 98% of all grades A* – C equivalent (4+).
A total of 61% of all grades achieved are at 7+ (A*/A), with 36% of all grades at 8+ and A*. The vast majority of our students took at least one language at GCSE and 70% of these grades are at 7+ (A*/A equivalent) and almost three quarters of grades in science subjects are also at 7+.
Headteacher, Amy Chapman, is delighted that students have achieved such fabulous results.
She said: “We are very proud of each and every one of our students for their personal achievements including the skills they have developed through diverse extra-curricular activities. Our students have worked exceptionally hard and can now look forward to their next steps.
“It is testament to the expertise of our teaching staff, that our students have been supported to achieve their best in a period of such significant change to the examination system.”
