GCSE RESULTS

St Mark’s West Essex Catholic School were celebrating an excellent set of results that yet again demonstrate exceptionally good performances against all of the key achievement measures. It must be stressed that there can be no comparability between last year’s results and this year’s, given the new government measures and examinations. Initial results (pending remarks and appeals) show that 84% of pupils passed the threshold in English and 70% in Maths.

Headteacher, Elaine Heaphy, commenting on the results, stated, “Following on from our great ‘A’ level results last week, I am delighted that the hard work of our Year 11 pupils and their teachers has been rewarded with these excellent results. I am proud of every pupil in accepting and meeting the challenges of these exams. We promote an academic Key Stage 4 curriculum, which enables them to go onto ‘A’ level and post 16 studies. I look forward to welcoming this year group of pupils back, along with many new pupils, into our Sixth Form for the new academic year. Against a backdrop of change and uncertainty, for teachers, pupils and parents, we have maintained some excellent achievements and we are delighted.”

There were many examples of outstanding individual performances with most pupils not only achieving their target grades but a number exceeding them. The following pupils all achieved at least 4 A*/A grades (numbers indicate number of A* - C passes and the numbers in brackets indicate the number of A*/A or equivalent grade).
