GCSE Results 2018

Students at The Gilberd School are once again celebrating excellent GCSE results.  Headteacher, Linda Exley, said, ‘We are delighted. The hard work of the students and dedication of staff has paid off again and students can look forward with confidence to the next stage of their education.’

The top performing students at The Gilberd School were: (where grade 8 is approximately equivalent to the old A* and grade 9 is for students performing beyond A*)

Olivia Young         achieved an incredible 9 Grade 9s, 1 A*, and a grade A in Additional Mathematics

Ahmed Moussa   achieved  6 grade 9s, 2 grade 8s, 1 A* and a grade A in Additional Mathematics

Amber Sidki         achieved 6 grade 9s, 1 A*, 1 grade 8, 1 grade 7 and a grade A in Additional Mathematics

Harry Donegan    achieved  5 grade 9s, 1 A*, 3 grades 8s and a grade A in Additional Mathematics

Holly Felgate        achieved 5 grade 9s and 5 grade 8s

Holly Swan           achieved 5 grade 9s, 4 grade 8s, 1 grade 7

Louis Taylor         achieved 4 grade 9s, 6 grade 8s

The vast majority of students at the school achieved a good pass in both English and Mathematics.  As always, the raw figures hide many stories of students who have struggled with adversity and yet still achieved, or who may not have gained headline grabbing results but have outperformed perhaps even their own expectations. We are equally proud of each and every one of these.

The summer 2018 exam season saw students sitting many new Grade 9-1 GCSEs for the first time. Staff worked incredibly hard to prepare students for examinations that nobody had sat or seen.

The new 9-1 numerical grades do not map across in a simple way to the A*-G grades. This dramatic break from what has gone before means that comparison of this year’s GCSE scores with previous years is effectively meaningless.
