Cranleigh makes the grade
Cranleigh is pleased to report outstanding GCSE results, with 24% of all grades a 9 and 46% of all grades being 9/8. 100 per cent of students gained five or more GCSEs graded 9-4 and 76% of all pupils achieved 9-7 in the core subjects of Maths and English.
Last year, ongoing issues surrounding the Covid-19 pandemic saw public exams cancelled for the second year in a row and replaced by centre-assessed grades. Exam bodies tried to manage the challenges faced by GCSE pupils, giving some advance information on topics, and providing formulae and equation sheets for GCSE maths, physics and combined science exams.
Deputy Head Academic, Mr David Boggitt, said: “We're delighted with the positive response and hard work from our pupils and I'd also like to thank our staff and parents for supporting the year group though a difficult time. Congratulations to all.”
In 2019, the last externally examined year and the first in which 9-1 grading was adopted across all subjects, Cranleigh pupils scooped record results, with almost half of all awarded grades being 8/9 across all subjects.
This year's public exams, nearly 60% of the cohort achieved seven or more grades 9-7 and just over 40% of the cohort achieved an outstanding nine or more grades 9-7. Four pupils achieved straight grade 9s and a further nine pupils achieved all 9-8.
The majority of students will remain at Cranleigh to join the Sixth Form and continue their studies to A Level.
