Outstanding GCSE Results – 2019

Students from Meoncross School are celebrating excellent GCSE results today, with 95% achieving the new grade 4+ (national average 67%) and, more pleasingly, 88% achieving a “strong pass” at Grade 5+ in English Language (national average 44%) and 72% in Maths (national average 40%).

We are particularly delighted with the overall number of Grade 4+ across a range of subjects – all of which are the reformed, more exacting qualifications which are taken at the end of KS4 with very little or no coursework and relying completely on the performance of the student on the day.

In addition to 95% of grades at 4+ we are delighted that 31% of grades awarded were at 7+ – the previous A grade equivalent – and also that 15% of grades were at 8 or 9, the latter being the equivalent of an A** to show exceptional performance.

Core subjects and Humanities were amongst the top performing subjects, and 100% of Biology, Chemistry and Physics pupils achieving a level 5 or above. This illustrates the breadth of the Meoncross curriculum, where students are supported to achieve their very best in all subjects – ensuring they receive a well-rounded and holistic education to benefit their future careers and life choices.

Mark Cripps, Headmaster, congratulated the students on their achievements and said “It is a pleasure to celebrate with our staff and students who have worked so hard to achieve these results. My congratulations go to all of our GCSE students and I wish them every success as they take their next steps into A Levels and beyond.”

At Meoncross we pride ourselves on our unique blend of the highest academic achievements combined with an emphasis on the wellbeing of all our students.
