Our first cohort completed their GCSEs in 2020. We are incredibly proud of our pupils and their triumph through adversity in what was an exceptionally trying and strange year from the impacts of COVID in the summer term.
As a non-selective school our focus is that every individual achieves as highly as they can.Our pupils attained a pass rate comfortably greater than the national average, achieving 97.3% vs 76% (2020) and a 7-9 results of 46.2% vs 25.9% (2020) On average, pupils attained 8.4 GCSEs.
Overall, 97.5% of the school’s first GCSE cohort achieved grades 9-4 with 47.1% obtaining grades 7 or higher – equivalent to A-A* under the previous grading system.
In Maths and English Literature, 100% of students got a grade 9-4, and in English Language this was achieved by 95% of pupils.
Taking all grades into consideration the year group’s modal GCSE grade was 7 (A Grade equivalent).
While coronavirus meant that this year’s exams were not able to be sat, marking instead had to take into account teacher predictions based on previous mark exams and coursework results from throughout the year.
Caroline Townshend, Head of Eaton Square Senior School, was delighted with the students’ results.
She commented: “In what have been extraordinary circumstances, our inaugural GCSE results reflect the strength of Eaton Square Senior School’s academic programme and the hard work and determination of pupils and staff. I congratulate all pupils on their achievements and wish each and every one the very best in the next stage of their academic careers.”
