The excellent GCSE results achieved by Queenswood pupils today demonstrate outstanding value added.
More than half of all students who sat exams in a wide range of subjects, including Mathematics, French, Spanish, Music, Art and Drama, achieved at least two grades higher than predicted by baseline tests.
Over two thirds of girls scored an average of 7 or above across their subjects (equivalent to an A grade). The percentage of grades 9–7 was well over twice the national average, and more than 98% of grades were 9–4 (the equivalent of A*–C) – an increase on last year’s results.
There were some tremendous individual success stories, with over 20% of pupils receiving at least eight grades 7 or higher, and several achieving eight or more grade 9s – an outstanding accomplishment.
Principal Jo Cameron was delighted with the girls’ achievements. ‘I am thrilled that the determination and diligence of our pupils and teachers has paid off, and that our girls will now be able to embark on their A-level courses full of confidence.’
