Denbigh School celebrate GCSE results

    Denbigh is celebrating an outstanding set of GCSE results this year amidst volatility and confusion over the new GCSEs and grading system.

    As has been widely reported, the new GCSEs in English and maths are considerably tougher, and scored on a new system of grades from 9 to 1. We were delighted then, to see that as the very top grades fall nationally under the new system, we have seen the reverse, with a 60% increase on the national figures at grade 9. 
     
    Students, staff and parents have worked determinedly this year in order to get to grips with the new GCSEs. It is a testament to their hard work that a massive 90% of students achieved the new Grade 4 pass in English or Maths, one of the Government’s new key measures.  This year students have secured a third of all grades at A and A*, with some stunning individual performances, including the top twelve students each securing the equivalent of ten A*s. 
     
    Andy Squires, Head Teacher, said “I am very proud of the results this year. We have a very dedicated set of staff, students and parents who have worked tirelessly to help students secure their best results, and navigate their way through what can be a very stressful time. Today has been a very busy day, celebrating with our students and welcoming students from right across Milton Keynes into our Sixth Form, with their strong GCSE results”.
