Godolphin School, Salisbury achieved the highest A*-B percentage for eight years with 94% (since 2010) and highest A*-C for six years (since 2012).
The percentage of A*-B is up 10% compared to Summer 2017, in the face of much uncertainty, with new 9-1 graded GCSE qualifications. Overall, a third of grades were at A*, 8 or 9 and two thirds at A/7 or above.
“This is the first year that Godolphin has reported on the new 9-1 graded GCSE courses and we are thrilled that 17% of grades were the highest grade 9, set higher than the legacy A* grade. In Art, Geography and RS, more than a third of grades were at the highest grade 9. Nearly one third of students gained five or more A*/8/9 grades.
“Particularly excellent results were returned in Art, Geography, Latin (where all students achieved a grade 7 or above), Religious Studies, Biology, Chemistry, History, Maths, Further Maths and Physics. This shows the tremendous strength of both the Sciences and Humanities at Godolphin.
“The results are the culmination of two years of concerted effort from our students. They thoroughly deserve these impressive grades which reflect an enormous team effort. Well done indeed to the students and thank you to our teachers and our supportive parents” said a delighted Head, Emma Hattersley.
