Harrow Way GCSE Students Excel in Toughest GCSEs Exams Yet

August 23rd, 2018 Comments off

Although this year’s GCSE exams were predicted to be the toughest yet, following government reforms which revamped assessment and grading, Harrow Way students are smiling widely this morning. In English an impressive 81% of students achieved a GCSE grade 9 to 4 (equivalent to the former A* to C) with 24% achieving an incredible grade 9 to 7 (equivalent to an A**/A*/A). Maths also fared exceedingly well with 70% achieving grades 9 to 4 and 72% of students are celebrating their success with a grade 9 to 4 in the new Combined Science GCSE. Overall 62% of students secured grades 9 to 4 in the much coveted Maths and English. Harrow Way’s results in these core subjects are well above the national average.

Headteacher Michael Serridge explains the significance of the changes to the reformed GCSEs: “Changes made to the curriculum and assessment of GCSEs has certainly made these qualifications much tougher. Students’ success or otherwise is now solely based on Year 11 exams so against this backdrop of huge pressure I am immensely proud of our students who have all done so well. Key to our success is the single-minded emphasis we place on outstanding teaching and learning which means our students will always be taught to the very highest of standards.” Read more…
