Leweston Pupils Achieve Three Times the Top Grades

Leweston Pupils Achieve Three Times the Top Grades

Wednesday, August 29, 2018

Leweston GCSE pupils achieved three times the national average for the new grade 9s, with a pass rate of 12% compared to 4% nationally. 30% of all examinations taken achieved grades 9 or 8 (equivalent to A** and A*) with 82% graded at 9 to 5 (A** to B) and, whilst 66.9% of entries across the country scored 4 and above this figure was 94.4% at Leweston. 

Special mention must go to: 

Kate B from Yeovil who gained 9 grade 9s, A** in Further Maths and one grade 8, narrowly missing out on a clean sweep of 9s which was achieved by only 732 pupils nationally. 

Naima H from Yeovil who achieved 5 grade 9s, 5 grade 8s and A in Further Maths. 

Daisy P from Sturminster Newton who achieved 3 grade 9s, 6 grade 8s and 1 grade 7. 

Kate Reynolds, Head of Leweston, congratulated the students on their achievements: 

“We are delighted with this year’s GCSE results. This is the first year that the majority of subjects appear in the new numerical grading system and approximately 90% of entries were in the new format, with more challenging content and an emphasis on final exams. 

Leweston offered 21 different subjects at GCSE this year and 8 different departments achieved the equivalent of 100% A*-B. These excellent results are thanks to our students and staff working so closely together to master the new specifications. I am particularly thrilled that we have so many students choosing to complete their studies in the Sixth Form at Leweston and I look forward to seeing what they achieve over the next two years.”
