Wood Green School 2018 Public Examination Results

GCSE Results 2018

I would like to congratulate year 11 pupils on a record set of GCSE results this year. The year-on-year improvement at the school has continued, despite the introduction of the new tougher GCSEs. 72% of year 11 achieved 5 GCSEs at grade 4 or above (equivalent to the old grade C), up from 65% in 2017 which had matched the school’s best ever score.

The key headlines are:

The year 11s showed amazing resilience and positivity during the exam period and in the run up, and I am delighted that so many have been rewarded with results they deserve.

 

Two students, Connor Fitchett and Daniel Mann, both achieved eight grade 9s and one grade 8, plus an A*, which is a magnificent achievement.

The vast majority of students have achieved a place at university, with a quarter going to Russell Group universities, above the national average. Others will pursue an apprenticeship or employment, including Samara Clark, who achieved three grade As  and who has been awarded a prestigious degree level Apprenticeship with Jaguar Landrover.

Five students achieved three A*s or As:

Stephen Harwood  A*AAA   

Matthew Ledden    A*A*AB        

Tom Cowley            A*AA                   

Samara Clark          AAA                      

Bee Wallis               AAAB                              

Pictured above from left to right: Stephen Harwood, Tom Cowley, Samara Clark and Bethany Wallis who all achieved 3 or more As and A*s in their results with Grace Rankin who is celebrating a place at University to study medicine.

The school is also celebrating record results in the Extended Project Qualification, a prestigious course that requires students to write a dissertation and present their finding to an audience. Students choose their own topics and these have ranged widely from the impact of the media on conflicts  to the link between politics and music. This is compulsory for all students in year 12 and this year over 95% of students have achieved a grade A* to C, with over 30% achieving an A or A*.

In a year of great uncertainty I am delighted for all our students who have been so successful. Our baccalaureate, incorporating A Levels, the EPQ, community contribution, experience of the higher education and the world of work and of leadership, ensures that students achieve great qualifications and develop the skills to be well-qualified, well-rounded individuals who will go on to be successful and happy. Seeing so many smiling students today who are excited about the next stage of their lives is the real reward for everyone at school.

It is never too late , or too early:

Two students achieved A Levels early: Kostas Kotoulas  achieved an A in A Level Greek aged 17 and Adam Pickering achieved an A in  A Level Dutch aged just 14, our youngest ever A Level success! Also congratulations to Miss Groves, who teachers A Level Chemistry, but decided to learn A Level Physics and also achieved an A. Maybe we should all take up a new challenge this school year!
