Here at Henley-in-Arden School, we are delighted to once again be celebrating some amazing results with seven of our pupils gaining a “full house” of 8 or more A*-A grades including our top performing pupil who gained an outstanding eleven GCSEs at A*-A or equivalent, seven of which were A*.
Nearly 84 per cent of our pupils gained a pass in English and 73 per cent gained a pass in maths. The proportion of pupils gaining a strong pass (i.e. a grade five or above) is higher than the national average in maths and we are particularly pleased with our English grades where the percentage of pupils gaining strong passes is ten per cent higher than the national average.
Headteacher, Steve Jefferies, said “In a year of unprecedented change to the exam system and to the way schools are measured, until national progress figures are released it will not be possible to give firm whole school figures but I’m particularly proud that in our genuinely comprehensive school, pupils from differing backgrounds have done better than ever before. Our pupils have achieved highly and I congratulate pupils, parents and staff on another excellent year.”
